The Strange Thing About This One

Thanks to all our experts for the analysis.

The strange thing about this one is that the markers on the dial also seems a bit on the orange / tan side. [I realize that in these photographs, the shade / hue / tone of one element can sometimes "spread" to another element.] So it seemed like an unusual original, a strange restoration or some photographic weirdness.

Thanks again.
