Excuse if this has been an issue before..

Seamaster - two questiones to anyone who might have an answer:

1) When determined of purchaseing a SeamasterPro for its said ruggedness/tightness, and the purchase is not in terms of getting the best from a horological point of view (for that purpose there are a lot of other no-sports possibilities) - just a good sportwatch that you like; Is there any significant experiences comparing the mechanical and the quarts movement to power this timepiece? I am talking of which of them that are likely to have any working interferences.

2) Is it possible/relevant to replace the sceleton hands of the SeamasterPro (not the GMT or the new limited one) with solid (luminience filled) ones? Or perhaps someone can convince me that they (sceletons) are sufficient readable?

Just this, thanks, New2 (previously very sceptical to the Seamaster, but I'm on my way)...
