Are you asking if it would look good in a 7040 case or is that the watch you're asking about? That's not a 7040 case.

I' m very surprised, the 6309-7040 dial glows very well, all aftermarket dials I saw stay black in the dark.

I actually like the second option. Considering you are working with a case that already has aftermarket parts in it I wouldn't see a problem using the dial and hands option in the second picture .

Well, I think that this nice 6309-7040 need more love...

I will change the hands with white hands glowing in the dark, new Kanji day Wheel, Yobokies bezel insert replica and a new sapphire with AR coat.
