    Hi Chaps,
    I am mainly talking about the Hermle dials here used for 0451-050 and 1151-050 movements.
    Can anyone suggest a method that is relatively simple, straightforward and reliable, to convert a dial used for a long reach Hermle movement eg 0451-053 TO FIT an Hermle short reach spindle eg 0451-050 movement?
    There are in my experience more short reach Hermle movements fitted than long reach Hermle movements BUT (as it happens) I have a number of new Hermle moon dials with long reach posts only so not much cop for my short reach Hermle movements. Typical!
    Any thoughts chaps?
    Thank you as always :)

    change the center shaft and the hr cannon. The rest should be the same.
    Hope this helps.
