index.php?t=getfile&id=329&private=0Hi folks
As per my previous post to the parts side of this forum, a watchmaker has managed to lose the hands for my Gruen Airflight. Words fail me. There had been a set on the Bay, but they were sold about an hour before I discovered the lose. I'm not having a good week. Confused

It seems incredibly unlikely that I will be able to locate a genuine replacement set, and so I am thinking about having a set made. What choices are there, really.

So my question to the forum is: can anyone out there let me have the various measures of the hands? I have high quality shots of my now-deceased set, so I have ample visual reference. But I don't have exact measures. So if anyone can help, I'd really appreciate that.

There doesn't seem to be many (if any) folks out there who do make custom hands, yet I suppose there must be. Any suggestions?

Many thanks,


PS Reference shot included, taken from Big Ben on the 'bay
