The chips and scratches around the outer edge of the bezel insert on my 6105-8110 are faintly luminescent. I noticed this after exposing it to a powerful flashlight. The bezel pip also glows fairly brightly, while the dial lume is nearly dead. The insert looks fairly aged, but I'm thinking its a doctored up AM version. Thoughts? The watch has had a new crystal installed, BTW.

Interesting. It's too hard to photograph, but I almost get the impression the insert was printed over a circle of luminous material, and the worn portions are now being exposed to light. Either that, or its little smears of lumibrite from a reluming. Weird.
