    Second hand just detached - Fixable ?

    Having the worst luck lately with vintage watches. Maybe it goes with the territory but I just noticed that the second hand detached. Fixable ? Help ?

    Obviously the second hand can be re-installed, but it shouldn't have fallen off so easily. Hopefully the hands were just attached poorly by the previous watchmaker, but my concern would be that there is something wonky. Your watchmaker will need to check.

    Local watchmaker will re-attach. Should be no big deal unless there is some kind of underlying issue.
