I've come to the point where I find myself mainly switching between watches that will take a charge and glow through the night.
These include an SKX173, an SKX007 and a couple of post 1997 Seiko 5s.

What is your criteria for lumed watches?

Glowing all night would be perfect for a diver watch but for me I would like the lume to glow for at least 2 hours otherwise I relume it!

I have these 2 that glow well into the early ours of a winter morning...


I also have three lumed dials that light up the night!

Active lume on my vintage watches isn't as important to me as on my newer ones. You never know on lume until you actually get to try it out but my newer watches all have good lume - easily readable on those middle of the night trips to the loo. If I was going to be in a situation where lume was critical, my Sumo would be the go-to watch (excluding my G-Shocks).

Vintage/old stuff, if it has a go at glowing I'm happy but it's not a deal breaker if they don't.
Newer stuff, the brighter the better..

Threw a little Oris dress watch in there just for giggles 😂
