    I once thought that way.
    I have since been disabused of that fantasy.
    The modification market is not anywhere near as big as us geeks like to think. Who knew.

    I know what you mean, but just a single style - maybe the 1967 type paddle hands with lume that lasts more than 5 seconds would do!

    There's got to be enough of a market for that if there's a market for dozens of styles of Seiko hands?

    I know we're not supposed to discuss "politics" but see, for this to happen, it would require a revolution in "class" consciousness.

    People have to come to see the truth of this smoke n dagger hollywood business that is the watch world, and stop hankering after brand names, and end their "micro brand" fetish, especially when those micros are using the equivalent of 7S or 4R movement at best.

    In short, more people should support the modders, then and only then will there be a market big enough.

    Interestingly enough, there are options available to 'specially order' hands from Ofrei.com...... Although to a set series of designs and sizes.
    If someone was so inclined they could have 100 sets made and sell them through ebay.

    But it may not take off.
    I'm not sure modding is 'that' popular either in the grand scheme of things.
