I love the mod, but I also really like the stock hands. How much blue is in the crystal? I've got a srp773 on order and think I might try the crystal mod if it doesn't have too much of a blue hue in the crystal

The AR is not noticeable to me [but I'm colorblind], looks the same as the Hardlex, imho. When ordering the crystal you have the option for blue, smoke [I think], or no AR at all.
Hope this helps,

Beautiful! The hands and dial look like they were designed for each other.

How does the intensity of the lume on the hands compare with the Seiko dial?

Thanks! The lume intensity matches great, and they both glow green [according to my wife, I'm colorblind].
