Does anyone know of a watch with strong superluminova lume intended for a 7 year old kid? Looking for a kids watch that isn't junk, which also has great lume.

Thanks!

I've never seen such a thing and I have two kids I occasionally look for watches for. Also, a typical 7-year old's wrist is pretty tiny. Honestly you're not going to find much that's above a toy in that range. A tough Baby-G might be your best bet, but of course, digital and not analog as your call for Superluminova suggests you want.

Casio f91
Timex metal field 36mm
Lorus lumibright at 37mm
3 good choices right there that are not "toys"
Here is the lorus, my son wears it, an f91 and a cheap pokemon watch, he is 8 years old.

I picked my son up a Seiko Nano field watch that has a lume dial. Lumibrite (SCXP157).

Yeah, kiddo is a fan of blue super luminova blue lume glow. Wish there was some kid of small watch for kids that had lume instead of the standard cheapo kids watches. Kid like staring at glowing autos to fall asleep.

You're right, this is going to be a hard question to answer. The typical "need" for strong lume is a dive watch, and nobody makes kid-sized dive watches with proper lume.

I just read the title thread, and have question. Is the watch for a kid with a strong lume, or is it a watch with a strong lume for a kid?

I bought my 7 yr old a swatch last year, but it’s a piece of crap and has no lum. Very cheaply made. My first watch was a Swatch, I don’t remember mine being as poorly made as the one I got him.

If I was doing it again, I’d get a baby G shock.

Timex Indiglo is tough, bright, and should easily work for a child.

Funny, I was just coming in to ask something similar. My almost 7 year old is a budding watch enthusiast, he has a "lego batman" watch he likes, but doesn't wear it much because it's a little fragile and has poor water resistance. He's always enamored with my "water watch" (I have a 300m Deep Blue Master and an analog G-Shock that I'll wear in our pool, at the beach etc).
I've been searching for kid's dive watches and come up dry. Timex kid's watches are too toylike, as are most kids watches.

Some watch brand is missing out on a way to get kids hooked young!

Marathon GPQ? Small at 34mm, not terribly expensive, tritium tubes will shine for years. Built for military issue. Doesn't have enough WR for swimming, though.
