    I've seen OEM go for well over $100. There was at least one eBay listing for only the seconds hand for over $40.

    The set I ordered was like $30 shipped from the Netherlands.

    Photo from his site. Heard good things, took a chance. We'll see!

    Those look pretty nice.

    Not sure if you would have checked but
    How does the lume on the new hands compare to the dial in daylight and night for colour and intensity?

    Thanks for answering questions

    My understanding is lume is great and will be a close match. I'll put them and my 061 under a bright light and snap a pic; hopefully that will give us a good indication of what to expect!

    Few seconds under my iPhone led light in a dark room. Hands are still in their little individual baggies for what it's worth. If not an exact match I think it's close enough for me to not wig out over. Next test would be how long the lume lasts vs. stock Seiko.

    I have the PADI version on bracelet incoming from gnomon on Friday. Never owned a Pepsi (or PADI) watch before, hopefully this one is a keeper!

    That looks pretty close

    Is it the same colour as the indices in daylight too?

    Good luck with the swap, do you have a good watchmaker to use?

    I forgot to check the daylight color; will do that later!

    As far as a watchmaker goes, I think I have a good one...(I've only gone to them for the crystal; have not had any other work, repairs, etc. done before). I'll pop in there at some point and talk to them.

    Right on.

    Seems like if they can handle a crystal swap well they should also be able to do the hands.

    But I get you, handing something over for elective surgery is always a bit nerve wracking!

    I want to tackle myself but I'm scared I'll f something up lol. Would rather a pro do it for a nominal fee and play it safe.
