Another one from the same seller: 250791551010.

That second hand is not original, correct?

Looks pretty cool though, even has appropriate patina on it...

Lum, yours looks correct. The bezel has changed over the years but that is expected.

Good eye Daw, that second hand in 250791551010 is from a GMT.

LUM--yours IS correct and original, i have the exact same GMT. it is EARLY 60s with the thin hands and red arrow tip gmt hand. your red index mark  has been painted, it should be green lume. your bezel looks great, is it good and tight? if loose please be careful, if you loose it they are almost impossible to locate. mine was real loose and i had butches watch guy tighten it when he did a service.

The pointed hand is from the early 60's and had a metal bezel. The enamel bezel is from the very late 60's and the hand went to the red squared off version by then.
