The second or seconds hand of a clock? The pointer, the hand, that indicates the seconds in a clock, is that called the second hand, or the seconds hands? Or can you use both? It is from a song lyrics: The second(s) hand unwinds If you're lost you can look--and you will find me Time after time If you fall I will catch you--I'll be waiting Time after time

A second is singular, and there is only hand to indicate seconds, so it is correct to say the "second hand".
