    Resistance welding if it's steel - soft solder if it's alloy.

    These are typically riveted together - if the rivet is not damaged too badly, you might be able to rivet it back together. Otherwise the proper repair would be making a new tube to rivet to the flat portion of the hand.

    Cheers, Al

    thanks for your help guys... basically I have to fix it myself with my limited resources... I dont have a staking set, I do have a soldering iron but I suck at it and will probably burn my own eye trying to see under the eye loupe while trying to solder so not an option.

    I understand there are strong forces involved when resetting the seconds hand but will epoxy do it??

    Try using plastic super glue you can find on Ebay
