Regmariner hands

Recommended Posts

Haltec

Guys, 

Did anyone tried to replace  (on no date regmarimer) hour hand (wide one) for proper specified one (narrow one) for that ref model? 

Any sugesstions where to purchase hands set ?   

And is there a place where a flat cut second hand can be bought for same (regmariner) model.  

Watch comes from Reg with bit rounded seconds hand so I would like to know wether there's an swap option.   

 

 

Thanks

Haltec

Here's a wild thought.  Drop Reg an email, and see if he can advise.

Quick update on this - asked a few people and seems to be that these ones will be fine:

I have a feeling these will glow green and not blue. I've not found any DG 2813 hands with blue lume when I've searched in the past...

Received the hands today. The seem a bit small? Does the crystal magnify them? (I have no date) or is that how they’re supposed to be? I’ll take a pic shortly.

Sadly I don’t have a watch hand tool to change them, so if they’re the right ones I’ll have to send it to Rolie when he can fit it in!

You were right mate - green.

Here they are next to the Regmariner. I don't have a hand removal tool - will tweezers do? :rofl:

Do they look a bit small/thin? Or is that how they're meant to look and the Regmariner ones are too fat?

If they seem to be the right ones to you guys, i'll perhaps just see if Rolie can fit me in :D

Am not an expert but aren't the green lumed hands pre maxi dial ? If so the older subs hands were thinner I think.

You’re probably right. I wondered whether they may be 5 digit hands rather than 6.

I thought that only aliens had 6 digit hands.

Hi guys,

Note to mod: If it is an offence to necro/bump a thread please kindly remove this post. 

I am also intrigued by this topic as well and I don't think that it is wise to start another fresh thread on this. I have placed an order with Reg for a hulk and the only gripe i have is that the hands are a dead give away aesthetically. I don't mind purchasing the correct set of hands elsewhere and get it fitted by a watch smith but I need to know which link is the correct one and hope someone can point me in the right direction.

According to Griffo (OP), the hands he ordered from ebay doesn't seem to be the correct one? I'm confused. It shouldn't be green lume but blue lume to match the indices right? It'd be hilarious to have green hands and blue indices. Anyone can confirm that this is the correct one? 

TLDR: I am interested to change reg's hands to the correct one and would like some help on where can i get it.
