Hi everyone. So recently I got a parnis GMT Master II homage. I got it with the intention to mod it, although I'm a bit nervous since I've never modded a watch before, plus it is my most expensive watch oddly. I have nicer watches, but got better deals I suppose. Anyway, I want to change the hands to sword hands, and paint the GMT hand, and was wondering if anyone could give me advice on the best way to go about this. I've done a fair bit of reading and it seems before removing the hands I should have them all at 12 just before the date changes, the problem is the watch uses a DG3804 movement and the hacking is iffy, sometimes it does hack, sometimes it doesn't, other times, it does but if I touch the crown at all the second hand starts again. So how would I go about removing the seconds hand? Wait til the watch runs down and remove it from there? Can I still remove it the whole hand stack at once? Also for painting the GMT hand, its currently green, but I want to paint it blue, what paint can/should I use? I've read about using various model paints, also should I prep the hand in any way or can I just paint over it? Below is a picture of the watch in question.
