Default Need help finding some blue lume hands. UPDATE - FOUND !

I have this frankenhomage tuna with a Seiko 4R35 movement (NH35).

I swapped in a pearlescent snowflake dial with C9 blue lume hour markers. The hands glow green and I'd like to find some suitable hands with blue lume.

Any Seiko models I could use for donors / get spares ?

Any modder sources great too.

Thanks for any ideas !

Default Blue Moons

Seems that 13 or so years ago Noctilume ?? started offering Blue Lume Up till then all relumes I sent to Jack A were Green and Brighter and lasted longer. I do like BLUE and years latter enjoy Both.

So I found the hour and minute hands from the same new Seiko Modding House "Lucius Atelier". Guess I didn't have to go very far that's where the dial came from too.

The seconds hand is OEM Seiko. Red tipped black tail hand with blue lume. 3BX125G1B4J if you want one.
