I agree. Very nice lume!

I started with a San Martin with a type b dial. I was so impressed with everything about the watch that I bought another with a type a dial.

Basically sapphire crystal, Seiko NH movement, beautiful uniform finish, 200m wr, and bright long lasting lume. Both for barely over $300.

Some old photos.

It is. Currently I am in the process of putting every watch I own that has a 20mm lug width on rubber tropic straps. I have small wrists and a prominent bone at the top and have finally found a strap that isn't a nato that is both comfortable and looks good to me.

Sterile dial SAN Martin 62MAS. I have to say I really like this watch and for £139 total it is fantastic value for money.
Just beautiful.

San Martin are now starting to come up with some original design but most are costly compare to homage.

Cool watch! I didn't know SM made solars... Is the second hand ticking every second? Are you happy with the watch?
Yeah, it appears to have been a very limited run. Don’t see them come up much lately. Solar = quartz, so yes on the ticker. Would’ve liked to have seen a VK high beat but not at this price point I’m afraid. The build quality is very good and I’d say slightly better than the early Sharkey’s from 3 years ago.

This is one of my SteelDive watches it has a 39mm brass case with a Seiko NH35 movement and domed sapphire crystal. The lume is really good also and I really like the hands.
Nice...mind sharing where you got it from?
I said I won't buy anything in 2020 but obviously i was deluding myself :)
