Lume.. just can't get enough.











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

Same here, I even charge the dive watches with a torch before wearing them to bed. :57: Swmbo thinks it's I'm nuts... :eek:

I had to look up SWMBO and it is frickin hilarious. :grin:

Yep, I've also got a big thing for lume.

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.

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?

Tony, are those HDR photos? They are almost too perfect, if you know what I mean. The second hand on the Seiko is a great effect. Was that done with shutter speed only?
