Hey guys
Recently swapped a 7t32 movement from another watch into another 7t32 watch, and the hands of the sub dials don’t want to fit into the donor movement, is there anywhere I can get replacement hands for the sundials? Any help would be appreciated

Are you talking about the length of the hand not fitting to the subdial or the size of the hand hole not fitting with the pinion?


If youve substituted a like for like movement the hands should fit onto the pinion.
I cant be absolutly sure, but i would think all 7Txx movement subdial hands have the same hole size.

Handhole to pinion, seems like there’s no friction holding hand on when attached

The original watch probably did not have OEM hands. or they were Seiko replacements from a newer/older batch.

Often, hands have to be broached or alternately adjusted to fit properly. Seiko replacement hands will usually be tight rather than loose. I've never found genuine Seiko replacement hands to be too loose.

Ah I see, anywhere I can find some replacements for them see if that helps?
