    Need Gruen Quadron Hands and Crowns

    I have recently begun to collect Gruen Quadrons. I am seeking Hands (all) and crowns. I am having difficulty finding these. I would appreciate any sources or direction that you give me. I want to restore these to their former glory and I only want to sue orignal parts.See attachements for other watches as well.

    The sweep second hand is the the correct color, and the hour and minute hands are badly etched as they are 90 years old.
    The delicate nature and age will not take a refinishing.

    Quadrons didn't use signed Gruen crowns, so standard dust-proof crowns will work fine.

    I broke a rusty cathedral hand last night. I was not best pleased.

    So you want to return them to a new condition? I'm not sure which of the above hands are the 'correct' ones for those Gruen, but all of them otherwise appear to be in good condition.

    There is a guy on here who refinishes hands, it's an option to consider.
