I'm restoring a Citizen 67-9119 with the 8110A movement and I want to clarify a detail that I've read regarding the Seiko 6138. The center wheel pinion is 'D' shaped and the hand 'tube'/post takes that shape when pressed in. Is the 8110A designed the same way? Will I have to reshape the sweep hand when pressing it in again?
I will be fitting a new sub register hand as well; I have read that the procedure for setting hands in mechanical chronographs is to depress the reset pusher while setting the sub-dial hand on the pinion. Is this correct? Anything else I need to keep in mind? I haven't removed the hands till I'm certain I can put them back on.:)
Thank you for reading!
