Hi, I need advice on the dial of UFO model. Is the minute register suppose to have orange blocks around the minute track? While every piece has 3 orange blocks on 10, 20 and 30 numerals, a few has orange blocks on the minute track inself, I counted six blocks in addition to the 3 on the numerals. Is that original or modified? Must admit that it looks much more attractive though. Appreciate your comments, please. Thanks.

The 6138-001x Yachtsman has the orange blocks on the 12 hr register simply for a 30 minute guide, (when 30 minutes has elapsed the hand will be at the edge for reference, when the hour has elapsed the hand is on the line & dot)
The minute sub dial would be too confusing if it had them so it has the small boxes for elapsed time after 30 minutes.
Some of the later 6138-001x models had yellow boxes.
