Dial pin locations

#1 Post by dialman2000 » Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:51 am

Has anyone seen a site with Hamilton dial leg positions? These were always described using a simple x - y coordinate method. I've seen some original dial drawings and they have the coordinates for the tiny holes for applied numerals but nothing for the dial legs. Perhaps they referred to a movement drawing for that info. If so, where can I find All Hamilton movement drawings.

I'm new here. Any help appreciated.

I have not seen a site or reference book listing the information you are requesting but if I had a better idea of what you are doing I may be able to offer some help.

Is there a particular size Hamilton watch you are working with?

Hi - I have a few dozen original Hamilton dials and I want to determine what Hamilton movement they were made for. I might want to sell them and any buyer would need to know what movement they fit. Knowing the X - Y dimensions would help me.
