Re: White Hands are OK / See My Nastiest GMT Ever

: Shaun: When I saw the one listed on ebay
: (linked below), two things looked strange
: about it -- the hands are white and the dial
: has black registers. Most of the Autavia
: GMTs that I have seen, in the metal or on
: the screen, have white registers and either
: brushed steel (Viceroy) or red,
: luminous-filled hands.

: My first research reference was the Autavia
: Reference Table, which showed only the white
: registers on the black dial. So I was still
: wondering what's going on with this one?

: Then I realized that several years ago, I had
: bought this beauty, with its BLACK REGSITERS
: and WHITE HANDS (at least what's left of
: them).


: So it was this beauty, perhaps best described
: as an unrestored original, that convinced me
: that the white hands and the black registers
: are "correct".

: I am buying the watch that was listed on ebay,
: so I will hope to post more photos when it
: arrives.

: Thanks for raising this interesting question.
