I've only seen (and owned) a few of the top type as well. I'm not sure but I tend to believe the bottom one is a fake, would need many more pics of that clock to be able to tell. What makes the bottom one interesting even if it is a fake are that the hands style is authentic, and so its usually a tip off that a clock is a fake but those hands look very original.
