    I'd go for the silver hands. Dial is black so black edges on hands will make them seem smaller and kind of lost. And I was gonna say red seconds but then I read about the bezel... and you're probably right. Go all silver - and don't forget to post the pics when it's all done.

I am going to be ditching the stock bezel for a machined+polished one that doesnt have any red accents, so I am leaning towards a silver seconds hand:
    I like silver hands instead of black on black. I tried a silver second hand on this watch but it made it look bland, and so I went with red.

    I have used all silver hands in this mod and am happy with it:

    I agree with your logic. I did black on metallic.

    Silver hands for 710. As it seems that you are ordering Favinov hands, you could consider same 916 dial lumed by Favinov. Quality is excellent and it looks truly awesome. How do I know? I have one. :)

    This should hopefully give you an idea of how it would look with black hand. Same dial!

    Just got the 670 cased no-date Scuba Dudes in both black and white.

    Let me be the first to say it-I don't like the 670 case! I TRIED to like it, I really did!! But even though the band is 20mm, it still seems too narrow and wimpy for the overall width of the case.

    So I modded the black one to start with.

    150 case with Dr Seikostain Atlas bezel and Omega Seamaster insert. Vintage ETA Ploprof hands.

    I will say that I am impressed with Vostok's new bands, though. They are still chintzy folded lugs, but are much better made and haven't ripped any arm hairs out yet. I might just leave it on this watch...

    I'm going to get around to modding the white one after the weekend. I might try leaving it in the 670 case and putting it on a bund-type strap and see if I like it. If not, it's going in a 110 case!

    That black dial with the orange dude is out of production, isnt it? It would go well with the orange ploprof hand
