    Hands similar to those on Sinn U1 (Sqarish) ?

    Must have been discussed but my couple of searches didn`t provide the necessary results

    ... So... Any watches with that type of hands? I think the Ecozila has similar, although the most unique thing in the U1 is the "square second hand".

    Rectangular seconds hand marker:

    Many other Zeniths from that period had a similar seconds hand.

    Squared-off hour hand:
    Timefactors Speedbird-III -

    The hour and minute hand of the Sinn U1 are called "pointed sports" hands, and the second hand is "cubist" style.

    Lots of Longines models in the 60's used the pointed sports shape even though they were more of a dress watch.

    Some old Vostok Amphibia models, along with the modern Amphibia 1967 re-issues, have what Russian watch collectors call "paddle hands". They're a little bit like the hands on the U1 and the other examples posted in this thread. All pics are borrowed:
