    Are those hands are original?
    Dial is definitely repainted. And the rest?

    Definitely a color mismatch between hands and hour markers! :)

    I normally don't mind redials but this looks far too modern and Mis matched with the hands. The Lume job is so wrong and off colour that I wouldn't want this watch either.

    Well, I think Haga888 is right ... the hands are wrong! All hands.
    I've done some hands-on research lately on all BA hands, mostly on the 2913 and 2914 ones, but also the 2990 and 2996's (but not the 2915 yet :unsure: ).
    And in my quest for a replacement BA set for my 2913, I got a 2990 BA hourhand (I found out when it didn't fit :confused: ).

    The 2990 hands are the "thinnest" ones, but also the longest hour BA. Also the hole diameter is the smallest. Anyway, a picture head to head explains it better.
    Below OP's at the left vs. an all genuine one at the right, with correct hands and dial. And below those is one that just sold on ebay, also all correct I believe (hands relumed though).

    2990 hands.jpg

    See what I mean? Since the OP's has redone dial and the lume markers are much longer than the original dial's lume marker, the hands length seems allright, but are not! and yes, they are too fat also. But nice lume :) Plus the second hand is wrong to.

    The puzzel however is, that I think the OP's hands are either the ones for the 2996 ranchero or the railmaster, but the hole sizes for the cal. 28x are larger than the ones for the cal. 267...so how were these fitted.....with glue? And is that movement shot really the watch's movement?

    An original ranchero is a thing of beauty, it really is.
