Hi AJ, the lume is all original, it's green but in certain light it does go a nice tan colour!Technoman said:Your watches never fail to amaze me Clayton, that looks just fantastic. Is that original lume out of interest?
thesharkman said:nice watch. your dial is of the green lume variety. i've always wondered why some were green and some an ivory or off white color. the greenish hue drove me nuts and i sold my 6217 (that was one of the reasons). i hope you wear that w/o abandon instead of letting it just sit in a watch box =)

Hi Harry, the nos parts are really a matter of persistence..I try to keep up to date with the usual selling sites and the trade forum..the main thing is to keep searching, the nos parts on this watch came over a 2 year period so it does take time to get a watch restored.. (I also have some great friends in and around the watch business!!).Harry said:That is a reference piece if ever I saw one! It's really fantastic for all of us who have an interest in vintage divers that there are some people who are prepared to go the extra mile and restore to this level. If its not a "trade secret" would you mind sharing how you managed to source NOS parts...not necessarily the details, just the story behind your search...
