These military are challenging for me. Soo many "documents" w/ tentative model names, and I'm not up on the ads for this one (yet...)

 Incorrect hour and minute hands, exactly like this one:

Should be like these.

Those hands are used on black dials only, on the Ord and Type A-11.

sub-second hand correct.
