    Runs well and looks great.. Not sure about the second hand, but have seen other images sporting this same one.. maybe Kris will be able to shed light on that..

    That is verrry nice.

    That second hand is the one fitted to the MST 900-902 quartz movements. I don't think I have ever seen it on a mechanical.

    Hmmm... So, Kris do you have any images showing what the second hand for this one would be like.. I did wonder if it should be like this one on my 521..



    or the one on this 471..



    that being the case where would I get one??

    Hi Tony,

    am pretty sure the hand on your first example searock is broken, it should have a tail.

    Will look through my references soon.

    Hmmm.. just had a look under high powered loupe and it seems you are correct.. so now I may be looking for two replacement second hands..
