    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
