My second hand has evidence that it was once red. I see yours is not. Any idea if they did at one time come with red?
I can clean this one up or repaint it. I just want it to pass the wrist test first.


I have had a number of white dial niagaras go thru my hands. They all had blue second hands.

The black ones have had silver second hands.

That is one great looking watch nice find.

I wonder if they used the same dial as the Cavalier but applied different markers, as it uses the same 643 Swiss movement.
