    Bought a "el cheapo" Invicta 9110 diver, powered by a Seilko NH35 movement and a set of snowflakes from TM....after Harlan had informed me the hands where compatible with a Seiko 7S26 movement

    waited till saturday afternoon and my hands had stopped shaking and began......member sjb informed the second hand is a "bit of a bugger'....totally agree mate!!!!!!!!

      Top job, la !

      Tudor hands look much nicer.
      If I think of something witty, I'll be sure to write it here.

          What tool are you using to re-apply the hands there mate? I've just picked up a replacement set for one of my Seikos so am planning the same..!

          Edit: scratch that, I've found the tool pictured online & bought one

ID:	48982 Cool, if you can, either make or get a machinist mate to make you a "holder" a piece of plastic the movement will fit into, it makes it so much easier to get it lined up and perpendicular to the pusher...

            good luck and try to be patient.....

              Looks great now, with the snowflake hands

              Just about the most fun you can have, is doing stuff like this, cost is minimal but the satisfaction level can be high.
