Default Outstanding lume work by Guy

This time round Guy did my collection of 6119-8120s and 8121s.





Please excuse the photography. It does not do his work justice.

The figurines are from the film "Princess Mononoke" from Studio Ghibli. These are kodama, tree spirits that inhabit trees that are older than 100 years.



It's not exactly the photo I had imagined. I still like the idea of posing luminous kodama figurines to illustrate a good lume shot, but I have to hone my photography skills a bit more.

Default luminosity

i'm a lume freak too, i feel like not reluming a watch that used to
have it would be like insisting on keeping burnt out headlamps on
a vintage car. these watches are meant to have utility, not sit in
some damned garage.

i sent guy 4 watches a while ago, for reluming and whatever else he
thinks is necessary, i did it on good faith, now i see all this gorgeous
work he's doing...i am going to have to send a 7a28-7049 for the
treatment, along with a 6119-6050 i found....

can't wait to post pictures of the chevron here

thanks guy, beautiful work,

peterr
