Well, since the damage was so big, I could at least experiment a bit with it before dumping it. It looks easy to hold this hand with the pliers like this, but I tell you, it was difficult to catch that hour hand on the right side only at the exact location of the bent area. I used the Stereoscope first to check the damage under 20 times magnification and then saw, that if I gripped the hour hand just at the beginning of where the filling had fallen out, there might be a chance to straighten it. I did not press too hard, I assumed those hands were chromed brass hands and thus quite soft. The chrome layer is of course very hard, but the brass underneath is pretty soft.
