Think I’m going to go with my seiko helmet today that has the wrong second hand. It really bugs me. Lol
I have the original yellow one but it has been removed too many times and won’t hold tight so it won’t fly back correctly.
I’d rather have the wrong one and have it work right.

1968 Mercury - I spotted a few auctions for Timex repair center parts. A bit of bidding war but, I won out on two of them
Here is the first restore. Serviced the movement, cleaned up the case, buffed out the crystal and added NOS dial and stem crown.

for a 50 years old it looks great!

I admire you passion for Timex watches and enjoy seeing watches I would have never dreamed they would have produced.
