    Just picked up some questionable SM300 hands on flea bay, seller is in Australia. Per the seller, hour and minutes hands are original but painted black, seconds hand is white. In pic below, bottom second hand is shown for comparison purpose and is from a prior purchase, (it’s packaging indicates it as 552RW25) Will post some better pics tomorrow.

    very interesting find .

    the seconds hand seems to be the correct "short tip" hand

    never seen or heard of blacked hands, no idea why one should do that cuz it isn't for sure helpful regarding the readability ...

    Possibly these are hands from a 166.0177.

    But the 166.0177 has a white seconds hand like the op’s. The banana has black seconds.

    I guess Banana, the SHOM has 1012 so I if the seller is suggesting they will fit a 565 that would make sense

    I saw a couple of parts from that seller, and was very wary as the tudor ranger hands did not look legit (well to me). Hopefully you can get a refund if they're not correct.
