I am often asked what hands go for. A quick trawl of Ebay yields some interesting things.
First, from Ebay being sold by a very good seller is a set of NOS Tritium hands that sold for so much money they must be headed for a straight lug watch.
Next we have a set of New hands, which I think must be Superluminova. The seller is another one with a good reputation. These have a Buy It Now price of 165 Sterling.
There are also aftermarket hands, which are sold to replace Omega hands. These are being offered for 50 Sterling. The seller makes it clear that the hands are aftermarket:
And here is an Original set of Omega Hands in original packaging for 175 Sterling:
It is fascinating to me that the NOS tritium hands were fought so hard for, but it makes sense when you work it out, and if they are going to end up in a valuable straight lug.
We also have to be careful when buying lesser valuable references as it seems that aftermarket hands are going to be prevalent.
