incomplete cal. 1575 tritium handset for 1675/8 respectively 1675/3

March 29 2018, 1:23 AM 

Despite the bad pics:
- barrel opening of hour and minute hand as well as the large barrel height of the hour hand show cal. 15xx fit, means they're suitable for 15xx gold or steel/gold sports models 1680/8 or 1675/8 respectively 1675/3
- second hand shows a long barrel, so it must be for cal. 15xx too; but the barrel length isn't clearly pictured, so this could still mean 1680/8 (mid-length) or 1675/8 respectively 1675/3 (full length) - however the second hand is about a millimeter longer than the minute hand, so it must be for GMT
- the UV shot seems to show rather a bright white appearance of (a specific type of) tritium than a Luminova glowing - however if the lume glows after its illuminating I'm wrong here; but also the other images point to tritium, especially the back of the second hand lume
- curved hands, so not gilt era, ergo not cal. 1565 but 1575

On the first sight the position of the second hand dot seems a bit off, but this is because the tip appears to be folded at the very end (hard to see).

The lume of all hands looks the same, so as a summary I assume an incomplete (missing arrow hand) cal. 1575 tritium handset for 1673/8 respectively 1675/3 happy.gif

Greetings,
Xeramic

(Even though we all know that watchmakers even official AD's dont hesitate to adapt 15XX on 30XX sec hands etc....)
