Purchased new by me about a year ago, this Mako XL has the semi-iridescent silver/white dial and the latest 120-click...

    I think it would be a cool project to re-lume one of my watches. This is due to the fact that the lume lasts for all of about 10 minutes after charging it with UV light for 60 seconds. I'm not familiar with how this dial is manufactured, but the raised numbers don't really look like they're...

  4. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I have read horror stories about sending vintage watches for service and owners getting something they didn't expect in return - a polished case, relumed hands or dial, new hands, etc. Is there a standard note/list of "please don't change ______" that is recommended when having a watch...

    Does anyone know of someone who does custom lume or reluming in the Dallas area? I just wanted to check for someone local before I started shipping my watches out of state to places like IWW or MCWW. Every watchmaker I've asked about "custom lume" has looked at me like I was out of my mind. But...

    Hi WUS, for sale is a Breil Manta reissue quartz. The watch has been relumed and is clearly visible all night (lume appears white in daylight and emits blue-green). During the relume I unwisely attempted to unclog a tube of jeweler's cement, which squirted everywhere, including the 4 o'clock...

    TRADED is a relumed Casio Edifice EFM-501-1A4VCF chronograph in TZ 92%+ condition. :-! A "marine" model with 200M resistance, screw-down crown, 120-click bezel, and solid screw-in caseback, the watch functions 100%, powered by a robust Miyota OS movement keeping flawless quartz time. No...

    I guess the whole post really fit into the title... Some watches have crappy lume right from the start... I really need to find someone who will put some Superluminova C3 on my markers and hands...

    Hi guys, I would like to get my 6309 relumed and I've been in contact with Angelo about doing that. Just wanted to ask does anyone have any experience with his work? Relumed watches posted at his website gallery look really nice (Bienvenido - Relumer.com) and I've seen few good references...

    I just purchased a black Citizen Nighthawk (Model CA0295-58E). The watch fits great, looks great in person (the pictures don't do it justice), and feels great. However the lume is weak and is completely dark minutes after the lights go out. I already sent Kent Parks at Everest Watchworks a...

    Hi All, To all those who posted and looked at my thread regarding my experience with Kent Parks, I would like to let ye know that I finally received the watch a few days back. The quality of the work is very good as expected and the lume is strong although the lume is still not on par with my...

    Hi Guys, I sent my Casio AMW320d-9ev to Kent for re-lume in January. I got the watch as a gift for my 30th Birthday last year so it has sentimental value not to mention me loving the watch. Its a perfect piece and will look fantastic with super luminova. I contacted Kent and he replied...
  14. Watchmaking
    I am not a watchmaker. I have replaced batteries and that's it. Is reluming particularly hard to do and something that should be left to the experts? I have a steady hand, and wanted to try it out on a junker watch of mine. Is there a kit and/or tutorial that anyone sugguests? :-s

    Hi Guys, I have a Casio AMW320D-9EV which I got for my 30th Birthday. Along with my Citizen Promaster BN0000-04h it is one of my absolute favorites. It has everything and looks the business too. There is one area that lets it down and that is the lume. I have decided to have it re-lumed as it is...
  16. Rolex & Tudor
    I've got an Explorer I from around 94-95. The tritium luminosity is practically gone. Even if I charge it by holding it directly up to a bright bulb and go into a dark room it is so minimal that my eyes will need to adjust for 15 minutes before perceiving the faintest glow. Not cool for a tool...
