    I've never come to terms with the Seiko hands.. I saw skx007s modded with mercedes hands but while going through forums, instagram and asking around I was told there are no such hands for the smaller skx013 that will fit. Contacted most seiko part-dealers available and finally got hold of Harold (yobokies) who confirmed he had a set of short enough hands with the right hole size (confirmed as “M-benz hands set for skx013 12.5mm...$26”).
    My local watchmaker struggled a bit to fit them but it finally worked out.
    I hope this can be useful and give something back to the watch community.
    Enjoy!

    Looks okay although I personally would like the hands a bit fatter

    I think it looks great. Contemplating a hand swap on my 013. Thinking about Harold's 62MAS handset which he has informed me will also fit.

    The SKX line is often modded, but there are many more options for the 007. Yobokies is a terrific source!
