I've come across an issue where I can't properly seat the minute hand and I believe this is because the minuet hand pinion doesn't protrude high enough or I've got the wrong hands. I've installed the date wheel ring to give the dial enough clearance above the calendar and a dial washer. I haven't stripped the movement to oil it yet, so my questions are:
1.) Is it possible the movement hasn't been assembled properly (both the hour and minute pinions move when the crown is pulled out to the hand setting position)?
2.) Do I have incorrect hands for the movement?
Thanking you in advance for any help that can be provided.
So I just picked up this watch from Ebay, thinking it would make a great special occasion watch. I figured I'd be able to identify the movement after disassembly but I'm afraid I'm just as lost as before. Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be?
What I know:
It's an Ollendorf movement. Ollendorf was an importer of watch movements. They have a cool logo.
The only markings are a 315 under the dial, which doesn't appear to match any movements in the Ranfft database.
Any help is super appreciated!
Some updates, I measured the mainspring barrel of a 6498 and it's 16mm. I also tried loading a 10mm mainspring on an undersized winder, it did not load fully. So I answered my own question hehe. thanks.
