Was it 240, or 249?

All the proportions in this watch are fabulous (I am wrist challenged and would have liked a shorter LTL of course) but this all black version is a tad too shiny overall for me.

Finally got around to trying the Crafter Blue fitted rubber from my MM300 on my Topper LE.

I'm really picky with how straps fit and look, but surprisingly it does fit. Quite well in fact. It was just a little snug between the lugs, and is thicker at the lugs as the side picture shows, but isn't noticed on the wrist. Also there is a very small gap, maybe 1mm or less, between case and strap. If it was a SS case it would bug me, but being black it's hardly noticable.

Obviously I'd have to source a suitable PVD buckle if I wear it on this watch, but I think I like it enough to start looking for one.ImageImageImageImageImage

^ That looks great! I doubt I have the wrist for the CB, but I'm wearing mine right now on a Scurfa rubber with black hardware from Terry. Super comfy.

Yep. Saw that and it looks incredible.

I have a set of those hands. Too bad I need the watch as well.

I wonder if the lume on the hands matches the markers. Old Seiko lume is slightly different than the new stuff. Drives me nuts.

Thanks for the pictures!

I want to do this but the 1mm gap would also bug me, but I like the idea of the rubber strap with the Seiko clasp.

I had a NOS set of mm300 hands on the new baby turtle and they matched perfect- near perfect. I was expecting a slight difference but I did not.

That’s good. I have a set of OEM Sumo hands on an SRP779 and the lume does not match very well.

I do like the OEM hands on these... great legibility, never a question what the time is, in any situation...

in perfect harmony with the rest of the dial/bezel imho... domo arigato :cheers:

The more I see this one the more I think I might have missed out. I think it’s the best version so far but I’ve been trying to stop buying watches for now.

The minutes hand length is perfect.
