    hey all! I've got a '96 omega quartz seamaster ( yes, a quartz! I'm one of those wierdos who likes quartz over mechanical 🤣) had it for a good few years haven't I?

  4. First big watch purchase was an Alpinist. In love with the watch, but it has uneven lume. Advice please?

    Seiko
    Here is a gallery of more images of the issue I love watches, particularly automatics. The alpinist really speaks to me, I really want one, need one I might say. I finally have the funds. I ordered one from amazon and as you can see it has a very uneven lume job on the minute hand. It’s...
  5. WIS-WUS told you Timex does not do Lume ---- They Lied!

    Affordable watches
    Here's my Corona Virus WUS contribution. One of the first thing that I've learned and was heavily biased was that Timex does not do Lume well. Given that the 95% of their watches have Indiglo; it never occurred to me to really find out and just took it as reality. Fast forward a couple...

  9. SKX weak lume on hands...

    Seiko
    Hey So I bought a SKX from a local trading website here in Aus, got a good deal and the vendor claimed the watch was new old display stock. This seemed backed up by him having 1 of each variety for sale, pictures looked good and the price was fairly good. The watch has two quirks that I find...

  14. Day/Night Legibility - Pics and Thoughts (Please Share Yours)

    Dive watches
    There are some really nice dive watches out there. Some of them look really interesting, but trying to quickly read them is sometimes a pain in the butt. Maybe it's the contrast between the dial and the hands. Maybe it's glare/reflection. Maybe the lume fades away too quickly. Great in the day...

    Bremont
    Hi guys, Following my previous thread regarding my Alt-1 ZT Military special edition, I have received the watch back with the engraving and dial rectified. I have a question regarding the lume, however. I note that on Bremont's website it states they apply 12-15 coats of SuperLuminova paint...

    Montblanc
    Hi, I recently purchased the 1858 Small Second Limited Edition and I love the watch. I am surprised however that the lume doesn't seem very good. Once it is charged the lume is very bright but only stays bright for a few minutes. Then it will stay very faint for a long time. Maybe I am used to...

I usually can tell if I'm going to keep a...
