I do like the black framed hands.
The meatball is in the right spot for me, I don't like the meatball in the back like the tuna and 007.

Black date would really make it though

If you are going to mod it, change the hands to black
I have the yellow Di300 Tutima and that is exactly what I would do

Great watch. And. Just because it costs $200 doesn't mean it's cheap. Just a great buy
Congrats!


Don't change the date, but do change the hands.

The polished hands looked out of place to me. Black hands match the black outlines on the markers, as well as increase legibility.

+1 on the black hands. Makes it look finished IMO

The silver look off. I also am in love with the loooong skx second hand with the meatball on the tail end.

You can blacken the hands without having to replace them. Pull them off, stick them to the back of a Post-It to hold them, then carefully color the edges with a new (sharp tipped) black Sharpie. Use a magnifier if necessary. The Sharpie color comes off easily, so pushing the hands back on with a Q-Tip shaft will keep them from getting scratched.Worked for me!

Oh, and the second hand came from a Pulsar.

Nice bump- I still have this watch and have kept it bone stock.

I actually wound it this evening and wore it on a navy blue nato.

I do plan on sending it to someone to regulate it- running a bit slow. May also have a flat sapphire installed.
