Hi James, no need to apologise, it's not like you made the watch is it? In all honesty, I couldn't really care less and no, it's not important to me that it can be seen in the dark, The only time when it does annoy me is in the car when I can't read it. I'm just stating it like it is that's all, All I'm saying is that's how my PO works, or doesn't, whichever way you look at it. But as a problem, nope, it isn't. Was just interested that so many have a dayglo version Omega, but as you can see there are others like myself on here who also have a lume that needs to be under a lamp for effect and don't get the buzz.
It may very well be the best chargeable glow material available on the market but I'm telling you how mine perfoms, or doesn't where lume capability goes
Someone mentioned expectatons, and that is just it....I think Omega sets those expectations when marketing a rugged all around watch. As I mentioned before, I have an AT....it retails for 3 grand..I just expected more...
Point being however, using Superluminova might be the best but that is just generic...its like saying synthetic oil is better than traditional oil, but there are so many factors within synthetic to make one better over the other.
As for the driving part that drives me nuts. I let me watch "charge" for hours under my super bright desk lamp, and leave when its dark out. While driving, I cant even tell the time...it seems it has to be daylight to see, or pitch black (after being charged) for me to tell....and when charged does not last for "hours."
Thats the gist of it for me, I know I like my watch alot, its classy..but in a nutshell..expected more glow for the buck.
