Modifications to this Seiko Presage?

Question

Hello again Time Lords, I need to ask the community's advice on this one.

A short while ago I bought a Seiko Presage SARX033 (white dial, blue hands) as I was drawn to the contrast of silver white dial and casing against the blue hands. Being in lockdown, I couldn't view it in person but did loads of research online.

But when I received it I was disappointed by how dark the blue hands are and, unless they catch the light at just the right angle, they appear mostly black. As a result the overall appearance is somewhat dull as the blue doesn't "pop" against the white. Ive been trying to find out if someone could change the hands to a brighter/clearer blue for me but not having any luck. One modifier told me this wasn't a Seiko that had many mods parts suitable for it, but surely its cant be too difficult to replace just the hands if one has the right equipment?

Please can you let me know if changing the hands should be possible and , if so, any suggestions on who I could trust and approach to do this for me?

Much appreciated!

These would possibly be suitable.

Hands will fit a 6R15 movement from memory.

And a good Watch repairer will be able to do the swap for you.

You could also have the original hands repainted to a more suitable colour for you.

I do like Dauphine hands :yes:
