Have yet to see one with swapped hands...
Probably because the hands have grown on most owners.
Call me crazy but that's the first thing I'd do Image
Although I do like the OEM hands and think they work I'm with you. I'd be too tempted not to try the Sumo LE hands. You can always go back!
The LE Sumo hands would be the best.

IDK - Those hands make it look generic, imho. The original hands make it more interesting.
obviously, ymmv

It originally bothered me that the hands aren't polished like the markers, but the second hand is highly polished and catches the light when it sweeps. Actually is a very good look but can't really see it in photos.

Those hands look great. FYI - The lume on my old SBDC027 definitely did not have a green tint under normal lighting. Those came before the green-tinted lume appeared on the SBDX017, etc. Lume glow was typical Seiko green, not the nuclear glow.

While it does look good on the bracelet, it appears to be a Nato whore for sure. If I could just make myself let go of my Shogun I'd buy one.

Harold (Yobokies) is selling the 62MAS alike handset for these.

From the looks of it, lume matches the markers.

IMO, much better than the stock handset
