I am trying to source some period correct hands and period correct crown. The person whom I acquired the watch from explained to me that his grandfather lived down the street from "Time Hill" as a young boy and use to go out at night and play on the grounds. They would occasionally find Watch Boxes sprinkled throughout the complex. They use to take them and play games with the. He sent me one of those boxes.

I would appreciate any help you could give me in sourcing hands and a crown. As usual I appreciate ALL your help in the past, present and of course in the future. It is a little corner of the world that people really enjoy helping people with no strings attached.
