IME, Seiko Monster has the best lume of all my watches. It happens to be the most inexpensive of all my watches as well.

For some reason I'm in love with Lume lately. I wonder, does anyone know about Deep Blue's newer Swiss automatic tritium watches?

If I bought it I would ditch the steel and gold bracelet and substitute a dark leather strap. I have seen some pics of this watch with a brown strap and it really makes it look unique. That combo with the suits I wear with brown shoes could look really sharp. I am still a bit torn, but what appeals to me is that the look would be unique.

Embrace the root beer. 10 out of 10 times I'd pick a steel sub over the bronze GMT but it sings to me for some reason.



I've got a thing for GMTs.

You might wanna check into the lifespan of tritium gas tubes, they're only about 12 years. But I've always wondered is whether or not these manufacturers that are selling high-end watches with tritium tubes will offer to replace them.

I love when people call you out for a fake watch on IG.

This guy tagged my photo to "The Rolex Enforcer".

Obviously the guy who tagged it doesn't know whats real and what is not.

Oh well...

I'm curious if they use the same tritium formula they use for gun sights. Pretty easy to tell when those start dimming (or they sometimes break shog[1].gif)

Perhaps its time for you to go to "GMT Owners anonymous."  I think admitting you have a GMT problem is the first step ;).  I'll gladly cure you of it if you send me the Pepsi or GMTC :D  Great photo.  The "Root beer" is a love it or hate it color scheme.  I can appreciate if someone likes that it is different or the color just calls to them.  But for me, I'd take the Pepsi or GMT C over one any day and twice on Sundays!

Got love the idiots who call you out on things because they don't know jack sh+t about about the products.  The only thing worse than dummies on IG are people who try to call you out in person in a watch store.  I've given up on correcting imbeciles who have told me that one of my Rolexes is a fake Rolex because the seconds hand doesn't sweep smoothly around the dial.  It goes stop, go,stop, go, tick, tock, tick, tock...Now in my head I just say "Thank your Captain Obvious for the displaying your incompetence with watches.  Shall we go for another topic you are not qualified to discuss."  Of course they are referring to my ref. 17000 Oysterquartz.

Any pictures of the post-radioactive patina?

For anyone who hasn't seen it on WUS:The Ultimate Lume Test

That's what got me curious about Deep Blue. But they are an odd company from New York. Not sure what kind of Swiss movements they're hawking. They make Tritium look good though.
