Default More Blackfin options

Here's the Blackfin again. This time with flat black insert, Tuna hands and dial.
Just trying to see what looks best.
The look I'm going for here is something to make the watch look like its seen harsh environment but kept its dignity.
"Weathered by the storms of time"
In case you haven't followed this build, the case is a regular 6309-7290; modified to a tst by tigeruk, then micro blasted and coated in black PVD. The bezel is from an SBBN007; also coated in black PVD with standard machine finish, the hands and dial are Tuna original type {from my good friend Paul in the UK} Thanks Paul!
6309 auto movement; serviced. New Crystal times crystal and o-rings/ gaskets all around. Tan NATO strap with black PVD hardware.
All comments welcome!
Mike
Photos attached are with Tuna dial/hands and the previous iteration with red GMT insert and am 6309-7040 dial/hands.

Thanks Paul!
The dial and hands were just what this one needed to make it right. Looking to source new replacement dial/hands, but very pleased with the way it looks now. The older parts give it a bit of character and I plan to work this one into regular rotation for one of my work watches.
