How do you properly charge and what's a good torch to use?
Absolutely any decent flashlight (or nice bright overhead lamp) will work fine.

'Course a manly Streamlight, Surefire, or Maglite lends a purposeful air to the endeavor!

In truth, the cheap UV LED mini flashlight I found on fleabay works best for charging lume, but don't let that get out. Trade secret.

:rolleyes:

i'll say I'm from the opposite spectrum of the lume range. for me, bad lume = original vintage dial and handset (or NOS replacements). =)

That's EXACTLY why I'm not safe around truly vintage watches. If the lume's dead, it's lost some function. Kinda like my 13yr old Glock nightsights.. nearly worthless and overdue for replacement.
:eek:

I am a lume lover! Crazy or not the lume is one of the most important features in a watch to me and I can't get enough to the point that it is often a deal breaker if a decent watch has poor lume.

And the absolute LUME KING! You could read a book by the Orient 300m's glow!

I challenge that with the SLR001, makes the Monsters look anemic! Actually I have never seen a OS300 in person so can not compare it to anything but I know that the lume is exceptional according to owners. Do you have any OS300 comparison lume shots?
