    Is it correct only on the broad arrow-handed models?

    Yes, I know. I am asking if it is only correct on the broad-arrow models. Conversely, is it incorrect if there are no broad arrow hands?

    I tend to believe that the broad arrow models were all early enough to be confined to the bumper movements. But there are bumper Polerouters without BA hands.

    I only saw the lume on the bezel on the Broad Arrow model.

    Oh, I agree that the BH hands seem to have been used exclusively with dials including with outer ring shown above. Not all were lumed, of course (i.e. gold, gold capped). Also, there are examples with those dials that do not feature BA hands…

    Broad arrows of every brand are increasing. Is it legit, though? - that is the question.

    damn you guys have keen eyes! What points you to a redial?

    Redial as in fake (the cosign added later) or just cleaned up/repainted?

    Redial as in reprinted. The co-signature might have been an original feature, but the whole thing has been repainted. Look at some of the UGs owned by members on this site, and compare fonts closely. The A's are a dead giveaway for me.

    Then there are details like extension of the crosshairs into the 6 and the '2' of the 12. Sloppy.

    How about the fact that the shield logo fell off? LOL

    Well, the falling off is disrepair, not necessarily shenanigans. Except it looks like someone lumed the blank logo spot.
