Not so fast. I've had several of these with those hands. Here's one I still have.

"I Do Also!" I had never noticed they catalog being the other way. I'm not getting rid of the others, cool hands!

Agreed. I think it's safe to say that both styles of hands were offered.

I think there are several models from the mid to late 60's that show up with the same sets of hands different from the catalog that they must have come that way from the factory.

Did that sentence make any sense to anybody but me? :lol:

I would agree! I find it ironic, the hands shown in the catalog appear to be not as common and hard to find on the watch.

I'll add my Sea Rover II to the mix.

BTW, does anyone have an appropriate crown for the Sea Rover II they'd like to sell?
