I know that on the "old" SMP300 bond, ref 2531.80.00 the lume color is classical white, so is also on the chrono version, the 2599.80.00.

I've seen on this forum that the new SMP300 co-axial BLACK dial (ref. 212.30.41.20.01.002) has instead a BLUE lume color. I was wondering if this also applies to the 2220.80.00, which is the blue co-axial:


that is, in this watch, the lume color is BLUE or WHITE?

and what about these Chrono:
- 2225.80.00 (new SMP300 chrono blue)
- 213.30.42.40.01.001 (new SMP300 chrono black)


thanks everybody!!

For the 2220.80, the lume color is Neon Green.

All the blue watches you mention have lume that appears slightly yellow/green in daylight and grow green (except for the newest SMP ceramic bezel which has the new white daytime appearance and blue glow (with bezel pearl and minute hand glowing the same green colour). All the black ones you mention have the white/blue Superluminova version, the same with the new black ceramic SMP.

The 8 digit reference numbers you refer to as new coaxial SMPs are the current collection 'old' SMPs as the 'new' ones are the ceramic bezel SMP's without the wave background that are just filtering through. Same applies to the black ones you mention...

Hope that makes sense.

Here are some pics which show the lume color from the black model (the recently superseded midsize SMP300 - ref. 212.30.36.20.01.001). Lume is bluish, but the markers appear a very pale green in daylight.

thanks.
does this rule also apply to the older "originals" SMP black models, like for example the 2954.50.91?

And what about the SMP Electric Blue (ref. 2255.80 or 2055.80)?

thanks!

I lifted this pic from the forum I think (SORRY TO THE AWESOME PHOTOGRAPHER). Nice comparison shot of the sword-hand SMP300 lume.
