I had discussed this with you guys before. I love my Skeleton Tourbillon but the hands are so darn small and thin that they get lost on the dial! Even though the watch is a dress watch through and through I still want to be able to tell the time at a glance...

At any rate Al sourced some hand choices for me and he e-mailed me these pics today.

Choice #1...
BLUE LEAF


Choice #2...
BLUE MOON


Which handset do you think works best?

Thanks in advance.

I barely see the blue leaf

I'll go for the blue moon, lovely name

*Never a waste of time to look at a watch*

give you time at a glance

Likely, any hands that do the job will look out of place with that beautiful skeleton scroll work

This is the stock handset on the watch. Pretty much illegible...


Then the BLUE LEAF...


Then the BLUE MOON...


From what I can see the BLUE MOON is most like the "Brequet" style hands that the watch came with originally and they also have better legibility than the original ones.

I will keep the original hands of course just in case I ever move the watch on.
