Comment: 5270 looks LARGE right beside the 3970, 'no?  That's 36mm versus 41mm but since that's the case diameter that translates to roughly a 30% difference in case area.

that is a fantastic pic. im up for a watch get together. i plan on leaving with more watches than i arrived with.

Nice grouping of watches. Yes, the 5270 looks much larger, but the 3970 follows a more traditional size and appearance for their perpetual calendar chronos.

Haven't been to a GTG in a while. It would be fun to have a watch appreciation GTG. I may be able to go to NYC for a few days in May. Or if SF regulars are in the North East, I work near Boston.

I like stitches idea of leaving with more watches than he arrived with ; )

Can't speak for the radium watches, but the tritium studies were IIRC done with plastic cased watches, not metal cased ones.

Ball Watch, in a dark room, after being kept in a box for a few months.

Some of my RTW shirts do not have enough room in the cuff for my latest acquisition.... does anyone use button extenders? It seems, on the face, like a good idea that could go horribly wrong.

i have tried to get pics like this of my panerai, but cant get a good one. what is the required technique?
post #19087 of 39082
No technique on this one. Tritium gas filled tubes make it bright all the time.

On your PAM, you can get a good pic if you expose the dial to bright sunlight then take it into a completely dark room. Sunlight seems to charge the luminova best.

maybe i dont "charge" it long enough, as my pics never come out in the dark. will try the sunlight method. thanks!
post #19089 of 39082
You could also try increasing the exposure in order to let the light in for a longer period of time.

I like this lume pic I took--just regular point and shoot, but did a countdown.

Here's a daylight lume pic:

- no photo trickery, but the dial was charged for a couple of seconds with a small Surefire torch...
