You need to start wearing those damn Fortis' Max or I'm coming to take them to my house!

Well, let me put it like this: The lume dial of the white face Marinemaster is initially very bright - but naturally it fades over time.

If it's fully "charged": For the first 10 minutes or so I'd even deem it as "too bright" to drive a car at night with the watch on the wrist (it's distracting). For that purpose the black face watch is (jmho) better...

:roll: Knock on wood, but if you get hit by the proverbial bus tomorrow, who'll wear them then? Start with the alarm, and switch it up with the COSC every couple of days.

thanks guys, what is the average time your Fortis stays lit? Does that white face Marine Master stay lit most of the night or not really? Max
