Thanks! The Senator has a tiny second hand. Do any of these movements take a second hand like the Senator?

Hello Denis, thanks so much! Question though... are those three hands same size? Whats the difference between the three? I’d like the red hand but if out of the three one is  gold that would be my preference.

The red one is R12 which should be 12 mm long,the other two are B12 and B18 which are blue 12 and 18 mm long.You should measure which one would fit.Sorry I do not have a gold one.

Thanks for the response. Is it 12mm long all the way (front to back)? Tip to tip?

What you have to do is measure the distance from the pinion to the seconds track to see what lenght you need  or mabe ask someone who has the same watch as you.The 12's are aprox 5.50mm from center to tip the 18 is aprox 8.80 mm center to tip.If you need the longer one you could probably just paint it red as I think most of the Medicos had red seconds hand(I could be wrong on that point though).

It measures around 6.70mm from pinion to seconds track... any idea if there is a second hand that measures around that?

Could you post a picture of the watch?

Sorry for taking so long to answer, I hadn’t noticed you asked me to post a picture. Unfortunately, I can’t. I don’t own a computer. I have tried with my phone but it won’t allow me to upload a picture.

I am going back to the search again. Denupnorth, my email address is [email protected]. If you don’t mind could you write me there? I can send you a picture to your email through my phone.
