    Question about the secons hand on the Small Second diver

    I have the blue dialed version of the Oris Small Second diver.
    From day 1 I wonder the functionality of the second hand at the 9-10 'clock position.

    It points 2 directions and only 1 side has lume.
    Does this hand have a hidden function I don't know about?

    Not that I'm aware of. You can use the lume or non lume end to set your watch.

    Still I wonder what the idea behind it is.
    I am using the lume side whem I time it.

    Thanks for the input though.

    More suggestions anyone?

    Nice Oris. I am pretty sure that, unlike a normal seconds hand, a small seconds hand can be obscured by the hour or minute hand. The dual sided small seconds hand is so that you can always see the sweep of the seconds hand, no matter where the other hands are.
