Unusual 12s 429
I just picked up this movement pretty cheaply. It winds, sets and runs perfectly. It dates from 1922. My questions concern the hands and the dial. I have looked at all the reference material I could find and don't see the dial shown anywhere. As for the hands, I don't see the style shown anywhere but I did find an auction for a set of 12s Waltham hands that look exactly the same. I'd appreciate any opinions and observations.

It seems hands are not original, regarding dial - looks like it was badly re-painted, South Bend name looks too bold to me and inner narrow circle should not be painted as it has ornamentation, sconds section looks bad... thats my 3 cents Smile

similar hands you could see there:
