    Red tipped ones look . . . circumcised!

    I like a bright second hand








    This second had has faded over the years but it is still orange.











    If we are including hand tips then I have these...











    If you are going to include orange / red hands, that’s another load of watches to photograph.

    One I made earlier ....

    Modded Seiko 7A38-7270 I built a few years back.



    That wrist shot doesn't show it particularly well, but the chrono' sweep hand is orange and the constant seconds (6 o'clock sub-dial) is red:

    Show us your red / orange seconds hands

    A few from my Instagram;

    Not a second hand but you can’t really dismiss the red GMT on the EXP2



    Subtle date indicator



    SMP



    Vostok



    And finally the lovely chrono seconds on the Seagull 1963 reissue

    IWC has been flipped, but others remain.

    Any love for the Nomos models?

    I've often been tempted myself . . . .

    Can anyone tell me what's the difference between a seconds- and main chrono hand?

    Many thanks. Looks to be an interesting watch.


    ** edit **

    I see they have a white dial model. Looks rather good.

    How's the build quality and feel? Considering they charge a good chunk of money for this, would you say it's on par with affordable Swiss in this price range?

    Hi
    It’s the grey series turtle. It was a European limited edition I think so you’d have to get one on the second hand market. The dial is lovely. I’d highly recommend Turtles, they’re great value for money.

    Looks great on a nato too. Some more pics for you

    Just this I think. Although I missed out on a grey dialled limited edition Seiko as above that I really liked, so still looking for another one to join it.
