    Sub register watch hand needed - to finish restoration

    Hi

    I am restoring an old Meister Anker and am missing one last part a sub register chrono hand (movement EB 8420).

    It's not a particularly prestigious watch but it's my first restoration so I want to complete it.

    Can anyone help?!

    Thanks

    Matt

    Dr. Ranfft's database now lists hand sizes. Supply houses can supply hands.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Thanks for the info - this may be a stupid question but what is "Supply Houses"?

    Material Supply Houses is the trade term for parts, et.al. vendors. Startime, OFrei, CousinsUK are examples with big online presences. Mostly they sell to watchmakers and jewelers. There is often a minimum order and that level, not the price, is often the problem dealing with them for specific problems. (So I always use the order to top off consumables and the like.)

    Google can often find such places (... especially the ones that paid Google to be found... search quality has gone downhill from the good old days! LOL)

    I hope that helps.
