So this would be 090660M as opposed to 090660 (I only swapped the bezel and replaced the strap, obviously) :)

    Yes, that is the matte case I eluded to in my post. I purchased this matte case from Meranom and transferred my Scuba Dude from his 710 case.
    Now compare it to the brushed from the 090 SE.

    I like Dr. Ranfft's lume, but I've not tried any others. It is pre-mixed, which is one of the reasons I chose it.

    I've heard mixed reviews about this lume:

    But I know one prodigious modder uses it and I assume he knows what he's doing.

    I refined the finish a bit with the 3rd to finest manicure file. It's more satiny. In the corner you'll see the obligatory cat hair.

    But how do you get such nice lines?

    If you're up for mixing your own, I use Glow Inc. V10 (equal parts 5-15 and 15-35) with a near transparent white binder (clear lacquer with just a touch of white lacquer). The blend gives a peak at 15 microns while having some small crystals to help with smoothness and some larger crystal to increase glow time. I found it closely matches the early 90's Vostok formula in grit/color pretty well but glows like crazy (+12hrs).

    To compare it to NoctiLumina, it sits between the G15F and G15UF pigments in "grit" and duration for a lot less money.

    Very good outcome indeed!
    I will post a picture of the result on my object when I have made a try to achieve something similar.
    It should show up in the mail today I hope.

    Yeah I've got one of these kits and made my first attempt at relume last weekend. Still not got the application quite right but I have observed that the glow doesn't seem to last as long as I'd hoped. Perhaps I'm not getting an optimum mix ratio, or perhaps it's the LED light which I used for charging!
