Is there a company or individual ANYWHERE who supplies aftermarket handsets for larger Swiss Watches? I have been searching for literally a year for a set of plongeurs for my JSAR. Got tricked by Bill Yao from MKII into believing him about one of his sets and bought them. WAY too small.

Someone needs to cater to the above 40mm mod crowd! Noah? Jake? Harold? Step up!

I remember talking about this as well a few weeks back. You are correct, it seems that all the Mods are designed for the 40mm club.

Wow AH..It IS hard finding hand sets for the larger Swiss Watches ! Help Needed Icon_eek
I really couldn't find what you wanted either. However, I found a few
places that did have a variety of hands. They probably are places you
have already tried, but just thought I'd link them to you ! Help Needed Icon_smile It seems
like we will just have to wait until someone out there actually makes
what you are looking for ! Here are the links..

Try Jay at Motor City Watchworks. He has some hands for ETA stuff; not sure what movements the fit but shoot him an email he'll get back to you quick:

Hey thanks CSKI. Never seen that place before. I was very excited for a second, but alas, everything is 12mm. Made for 29mm dials. Curses!

Somebody is making these hands in the first place right? Whoever is manufacturing the larger plo-prof hands for Deep Blue, Ocean7, Zinex, etc, etc, needs to identify themselves!

One of the reasons you don't see larger hand sizes offered is the MOQ when having them made. If a guy has to buy 500 sets he needs to order the sizes that have the greatest appeal. The 12 mm to 12.5 mm size will fit the most watches.
