    Is this an original design or a copy?

    Hello all,

    I have a HZ 9310 movement (the Unitas 6497 clone) just sitting around and want to build a watch out of it from parts on Taobao.
    I found this watch, but I don't know if the "blades seconds hand" is an original design idea or a copy from another watch. I can buy all the parts for this watch from one store.
    Here is a photo of the watch:

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    I know this came from the Parnis TB store (This particular model came out in 2013).
    That fan blade design is unique to Vakuy.
    There is not a watch in the world with such a design.

    EDIT: I stand corrected again

    Call it a slight variation on a theme

    Thanks, I had a feeling it might not be an original design. It still looks cool, and I can buy all the parts for under 40usd.
    I have been searching for something fun to do with that HZ9310 movement.
