Default relume of a seiko sports 6119-6020 proof/proof from the sixties


Hi!
I bought a starter kit from watchlume a couple of days ago, and have relumed a lot already.
This is a seiko sports from the sixties. I relumed dial, hands and the small triangel on the inner bezel.
I restored rest of the watch earlier.


Pretty satisfied. What do you think?

A starter kit a couple of days ago?!? Well done, I'm impressed!
And I think you could teach a thing or two to some rather pricey brands out there about lume application...

wow!!


That looks great!


What does this "starter kit" have in it? have you lumed before?


I'm a long-time modeler (something that really has helped when learning watch work) but I'd be leery about my first dial. You did a great job - that looks professional!

Who did you get that kit from and is that the natural color of the lume or is it mixed with any colors? It looks just like stock both color and texture...

Spencer, we must be brothers or something, I am a long time model maker too. I made automotive models of racing cars (still do occasionally), mostly Tamiya brand in 1/12 and 1/24 scale and also a number of older 1/8 scale Pocher models too. Believe me, if you are able to point small details on a model you should be able to lume..

Congratulations on a professional level lume job and a very nice 6119 Sports Seiko, too! 8)
Actually the great quality of your lume job is that one doesn't even notice that the watch has been relumed in your pictures. Excellent!
Cheers,

We must be, yes. I'm a huge Tamiya guy (or was - I slowed down modeling when I started collecting real WW2 stuff, and after we had the baby I just stopped) most 1/32 WW2 fighters and tanks. You can tell I stopped cold - I have six models queued up, all of which I bought years and years ago.


Watch work feels very natural actually - the same or similar skills, except the finished product is something you can use!

Beautiful Work If there was One aspect of this Hobby I could choose to be able to do in a decent manor it would be ReLUMING. More-so then Servicing or case finishing both so
necessary yet What I find myself admiring more then any other aspect is Reluming


Your work cane out beautifully, the Neatness and the way you built up thr re Markers and indices look as good as needs to be, I also think Think it must be possible


if reluming your own watches and not having to take into consideration the Cost of the LUME Powder and base you may be able to make a brighter Lume????


Knowing as one watchmaker told me once about his COST involved with buying the lume and knowing that must be a consideration I say what I said.


The neatness of the Hands First Class Imo

Small world! Same here. I've been building since I was a kid. Mostly 1/24-1/25 muscle cars from the '60's and the '70's. I also got into building Tamiyas a few years ago. If I think of it I'll post some of my cars on the O/T forum.

Cheers!

Christ that looks good. I bought a kit end of last year and the results for me have been less than stellar.
Circles are easy but squares and triangles....

A great job and a nice watch, good job on the resto.

Any tips you care to pass on to the masses?

I am beginning to think there may be some natural tendancy here to progress from one to the other.


Found the lume kits available, shame there is no website. Think I will order a set and get practicing. I could save a lot of money if I get my lume right...

I don't know if it's a general natural progression, but I think there are quite a few other modelers out there in the WIS community. Much like Spencer, I used a lot of 'tricks' to restore old watches that I used to restore old model cars. Funny this discussion would come up last night and this morning. I'm heading out to a toy show this morning and a huge car show this afternoon. Stay tuned on the O/T forum for pics and discussion( yeah, in case you were wondering, this is a shameless plug. ).

Cheers!
Mike
