Vintage jaeger military?

Hi, I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the vintage JLC forum but here we go. I've found this watch. It has a JLC movement in it but aspects look off like the hands. Please see pictures and let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

It's fake. The movement is genuine, but it comes from a dress watch. The rest is made up completely. Nothing JLC about it.

Hi Zaf - Here is another one very similar so I've decided to add it to the same thread! The hands and especially the case look suspicious. Am I getting better at spotting a phony?
