....Ok , You know how lots of watches don't have numbers to mark the hours.......I just read a description of a Bulova watch and they called them "batons" ....and they were a simple applied straight gold line.....and I call some of them "arrow" cause they look like arrow heads.....


Now I know that there are specific names for the different type of watch hands ,.......are there specific names for those hour markders ?

These are stick:






The long skinny ones at 3, 6, 9, and 12 are dagger:




Them markers at 3, 6, 9, and 12 are shaped like home plate, the others are arrowhead:
