    Hello there, I bought a Smiths Astral ship clock today with a clock-mechanisme type 156 (Coventry Astral) and an inscription HPS 1290 (by hand). The clock works but the hands for the hour and minutes are missing.
    The picture shows where the hands should fit.

    Anybody knows how to get an hold on original hands?

    Thanks a lot

    This appears to be the kind with the press fit hour and minute hand and a center sweep seconds hand. There used to be a site in England called that handled some of these. I don't know if they still do. If you search on Google for Astral Ships clocks you will see both the center sweep and isolated sweep versions to see what they looked like.
