Hey guys.

This came from a 16s elgin. It came off snug about like all the rest, the minute hand seemed to fit good, but curiosity made me ask. Did the slash in it maybe come from a past repair as to maybe tighten it? That's what it seems to me, if so I have learned one more trick.

I have another one but plan to reuse this one cause sometimes one part from another watch don't fit very well.

Thanks and good to see everyone again.

Roger

Sure looks like a prior repair, a pretty rough one.
Hi richeic

Yea, figured it had to be the way looked. But if the center wheel jewel setting and the bridge plate was a prior repair it was even worse.
