Everest Hamilton 917 Special
Model No. 4 with Cathedral Hands

There are some gorgeous european watches out there with dials that have finely lumed arabics leaving a narrow white border around the numbers margin. They look terrific, so I decided to try this scheme on one of the 917 conversions I've been making.

I don't know exactly how the european arteliers manage this on a large scale, but it took me some very careful work by hand to achieve the look. In the end I think it is one of the most gratifying hand lumed works I've ever done. The white bordered indices blend well with the white bordered cathedrals. The luminous layer is thick, and the dial glows especially well through the night.
