I'm now looking for two small seconds hands, one for a 405, one for a 435, Ranfft is showing me it's a 0.16mm hole. Both were replaced by a previous owner/watchmaker with a cut down sweep seconds hand. Would be willing to buy two in gold, though still holding out hope for a silver/white full handset for the 405 (posted separately.)

Will a Bulova 8AH / 8AD / 8BA / ETA1220 small seconds hand do the trick? That movement has a 0.17mm seconds hole. Just checked eBay, sadly, it's more economical to cannibalize a donor for its seconds hand than this option.

Thanks in advance!
