So are the hands original or correct for this watch, and what is this style of hands called.

Nice watch. I too like the morning glory style of hands. The tips bend pretty easily so be careful when the bezel is raised. I bent a couple last week but was able to bend them back. It's a hazard of having movements without cases.

The watch does a look a bit dirty, as evidenced by the key escutcheon, hole jewels, and "pegged" at "Fast", regulator. You probably know not to run it a lot before it gets a fresh cleaning and oiling. Enjoy your '57!
