Does anybody know which lume Bulova used in Spaceview models? It seems that all of them use white hands with lume except maybe one model with yellow hands/dots.

Is this Radium or Tritium lume? I don’t think there is a T on a dial, so it might point to the Radium lume. But Radium usually turns dark brown/grey and all the Spaceview hands are see seem to be bright white or slightly creamy. So is this Tritium?

Do legit Spaceviews with no lume exist? It seems like no lume hands usually mean a conversion model. What about yellow hands/dots model? Is this no lume model? Is there at least one authentic Spaceview with no lume?

Thanks!

They started out about '61? I'd guess it's not Radium or Tritium but whatever the latest Japanese formulation was at the time. That was a very modern timepiece when it came out.
