Response to The marvelous world of hands :-)

I personally find this all fascinating.

Imagine sitting in on the hand design sessions.

"Let's change the tips, maybe the waists, and the lume thickness but
do it in a way almost no one will notice."

It kind of explains the mentality behind all the changes on the dials.

"Let's move Submariner from down here to up there. I think feet should
be first, not meters, don't you?"

All kidding aside, there are probably good reasons for the changes.

Wider lume as customers complained of not seeing hands in the dark.
Maybe hands broke off at the waist. Therefore more metal.
Americans saying "Leroy, what's a meter?"

Thanks for the post. One of the more interesting ones in a while.
