Starting a mod job using a Miyota 8215 and having a hard time finding hands for the movement!! With all the micro brands using this movement you would think it be easy!!! Noah, Jake V8, anyone help!

I've been wanting to do something with a Miyota as well; shoot Harold an Email. My problem is finding a dial. I have an Invicta Aussie Diver MOP dial I want to loose.

If there is a way around it, you can count on one of the Mod Masters to find a way!!

Not yet and with NFW, Halios, Benarus, laco, hell even invicta and on and on using the movement with very cool hands you would think they would be out there somewhere!!

It may sound silly, but maybe you can reach out to the microbrand guys (like Steve from Benarus) at 3T and they may be able to either sell you some spares or point you in the right direction...it may be worth a shot!

Funny, me too! Love the case, bracelet, and bezel, but I'm so bored with the plain dial and the Roman numerals have GOTTA GO! I've been looking around a little too, but haven't found much yet. LMK if anything good comes up?

Thought about that, the hands on the NFW AutoPilot would work great for what i've got in mind but would hate to call up George and ask to buy a handset! Maybe Noah broaches or drills out the seiko/eta hands! The miyota hour and minute hands have a bigger hole, it's just the second hand that has a smaller one and i've got a few of them!

Just cant fall in love with the handset he has, they look like fat omega bond hands, makes them look real short! Working on a 45mm case so they will be my last resort!! (nice colors though)
