These hands are suitable for both our Takane Euroshaft movements and our German UTS Euroshaft movements, available to view HERE. They are not suitable for use with any Press Fit movements or High Torque movements.

What Is The Difference Between Euroshaft Movements? (Standard, Takane & German UTS)
The main difference between a standard Euroshaft movement (which also includes Takane Euroshaft movements) and German made UTS movements are the dimensions of the minute shaft, which correlate to slightly different hand hole (collet) dimensions in the minute hand. This is applicable for both regular Euroshaft movements, and high torque Euroshaft movements. In German UTS Euroshaft movements, the minute hand dimensions are slightly smaller (3.5mm x 2.8mm), as opposed to a standard or Takane Euroshaft movement (4mm x 3mm). The hour hand dimensions are the same across the different Euroshaft movement types that we supply.
How To Determine Which Hands You Need- Press Fit, Euroshaft or High Torque
In order to find replacement hands, you will first need to gather a few measurements and information from your current movement/or hands. You will need to determine:
1. What type of fit are your hands? (press fit, euro shaft or high torque)
Your current minute hand will be able to easily indicate what type of movement you have. Simply examine the hole in your minute hand.
- If it is round or has a hexagonal looking eyelet, and if the hand pushes onto the shaft then your movement is a press fit movement
- If the hole has two straight sides and a rounded top and bottom, then your movement is a euro shaft movement
- If your minute hand is over 160mm in length then we strongly recommend that you use a high torque movement
Please note, your minute hand hole should be visible. If there is anything protruding from your original minute hand then you may have removed the minute shaft from the movement with the hand by accident. To separate this shaft from the minute hand you will need to unscrew the hand nut on the front of the hand.
2. Hand Hole Dimensions (Shaft Diameter Of Hands)
As the shaft diameter for all hands varies significantly, your replacement hands need to be compatible with either your original movement, or the replacement movement that you select. It is important that you measure the hand hole dimensions of your original hands to confirm whether it is a match. If these aren't available, you can measure the shaft dimensions of your original movement. In addition, the total length of the hands are measured from the centre of the hole to the tip, not from end to end.
