Question: SBDX003 Seiko historical collection

Hello Seiko experts,

I was wondering if the gold hour, minute and second hands on this limited edition model are gold plated or solid gold?

Also, the gold surroundings around the hour markers? Gold plated or solid gold?

I suspect that they are gold plated. If they really are, they might start to flake/fade decades from now. Am I correct?

I would really appreciate your insight.
Answer:
Don't quote me on this, but IIRC, the golden parts you are referring to are neither gold nor gold plated. I beleiev it ids the same golden finish used on the 1000m SSBS018, but I could be wrong about that.
Answer:
Hello Seiko gurus,
I am new to this also, so please excuse stupid questions.
I have a Seiko Divers quartz, 5H26-7A1A in pretty bad shape an d i would like to restore/customize it.
Problem is that i can't find info or parts for it.
Any ideas?
Regards, Maximus,
