    Actually, the use of these type of hands on the Tissot predates their use on the U1 by a few years ...

    Similarly styled hands were used in cockpit clocks in WWII, by the way.

    David is referring to the seminal book by Konrad Knirim on German Military Timpieces. Expensive, but authoritative and thoroughly recommended.
