Hamilton, Buren & Heuer, calibre 11: Hand size

Hey Gang,

I'm trying to locate replacement hands for my Hamilton Chronomatic, calibre 11, ref no. 11002-3. AS I understand it, Hamilton, Buren & Heuer share some of the same parts because they share the same movement. Does this mean the hand sizes should be the same?

I found this spec sheet for Heuer Calibre 11 online:

There is a PDF with much more detailed information located on the top right-hand side of the webpage. However, I assume it is written in German. Unfortunately, I do not speak German and I've been informed that hand sizes are rarely provided on a spec sheet (that'd be too simple, right?)

Lastly, I'm on the hunt for a large sweeping second hand (color black) and a small minute recorder/hand for the 3 o'clock sub dial (color white). If anyone has a way to determine the size for these two hands (length and hole diameter) it'd be greatly appreciated. Or where I can obtain replacement hands?

Best Regards,

Current Position
