‘57 President G hands

Submitted by Birch on March 28, 2020 - 9:07pm

Hi there,

             I’m just wondering if anyone would know the measurements of the hour and minute hands of the gold dial ‘57 President G. I figure I’m not likely to find original parts on this one so if I can get an accurate length I might be able to find something really close. To the best of my limited knowledge they are black fils. Any help or advice would be more than welcome.

Yes I had managed to ID it from your listings. Mine has the same problem of having a missing minute hand. Thanks to the parts catalogs I was able to work out I’d need an 11AC BF26 #63-64 but I’ve been looking for months with no such luck. I have seen non original but I’m not sure of the length. 65-125 I assume means 6.5mm(H)-12.5mm(M) but is that correct? Is it actually 7mm-13mm that I need? Does anyone know what length I should be scouting for?

Just measured mine and yep the minute hand is 12.5mm (measured from the center of the hole to tip)

If you were to measure the over all length then also correct at 13mm.

Thanks. That has helped a great deal. Hopefully I’ll have that part sorted sooner rather than later.
