I recently received a 16 size Gruen railroad type watch with rusty hands. I wound it up and off it went: so far so good! A few hours later, the minute hand snagged the hour hand and the hour hand broke off! I've never seen that happen before...

Anyone have decent hands for a 16 size? The originals were spade/spade.

Wow, that must be a powerful mainspring. Sad
