Default SSA053

I've recently discovered the Seiko Superior models SSA047-SSA060, below is a picture of a SSA053 from a rakuten seller.

Anyhow, the models are fairly new, I'm wondering about opinions on these Seikos. I really like the blue one below and the fact that they are hacking/handwinding.

Hi robatsu, I had my eye on a white one with bracelet at Creation Watches. The movements are fine IMO but the styling put me off slightly, it's probably one of those watches I will decide to buy eventually. The thing that put me off is the coloured hour hand and the pointy arrow lines on the 24 hour sub-dial.

I suppose Seiko did this in the land watch/compass vein but it would look better without these features. Otherwise go for it if you like it.
