Gaining in popularity

These VC Overseas Gen 3s have become much more popular (and harder to get) since I purchased mine ~18 mos ago.

Really great dual time complication

But I’m having serious hang ups over that arrow hand sticking out underneath like that, is it less noticeable in real life? I need someone to talk me through it before I get a 5524

I own both a 5524G and this VC Dual Time; I don’t feel there is much of a difference in aesthetics of the “hidden” hour hand, I actually like the touch of red of the VC dial. I wear both watches a lot, but the versatility of the VC with a steel bracelet, ...
