Definitely not blue painted hands. Black would be O.K. but real blued steel hands would be ideal. I don't think an extra 30 Euro for this option, which would add an important element of historical authenticity to the watch, is too bad at all. As for the 6 month lead time, I can understand people not wanting to wait that long, but I think it'll be worth it in the end.
I'll go with whatever the majority wants.
