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.

So while the watch I posted earlier wasn't mine, I do also own a very early 6138-0010 with a proof dial which is below, it also has the stubbier hands, this watch is 100% original also.

So far, the only versions of this watch I have seen these hands on are all very early 0010 models from early 1970, maybe that could be the specific variant.

Actually IIRC (and I'm really stretching my memory here) this model cam with both the standard hands and the stubbier pencil hands pictured above. IIRC the pencil hands where used on a very specific variant. I just can't remember the details. Again there is a post in the mirror somewhere that goes into great detail on this point.
