    Zodiac GMT: calling collectors from Arabic countries

    Here is a nice custom Zodiac Aerospace GMT, issued for Middle East market or something like that.
    I'm aware that bezel marked by traditional Arabic numbers from 1 to 12.
    As well as I know that bottom text represents word "Zodiac" in Arabic script (from right to left).
    But one extra hand (or may be, as it looks like, the two tipped hour hand) puzzles me completely.
    Could you guys please explain this configuration? What it was for?
    Thanks!

    It is for Mecca time. It allows a Muslim to know the correct time for prayers

    Thanks.
    How does it work? I mean how to read it? Why does the hour hand pointing to two opposite directions?
    Thanks again.

    Very cool complication tailored to a specific demographic. Very unusual.
