I wonder how many times the lume has changed formulas, or whether it just wears out pretty fast with age.. I have a Bond SMP that's about 11 or 12 years old. A lot of the time it was in darkness. Anyway now it's getting active daily use again and the lume is unimpressive.
If I expose it to light and take it into a dark area, the lume is visible.
Problem is, the lume fades out pretty fast and needs strong light to charge.
It also isn't sensitive enough.. even if it's getting exposed to store lighting, etc. while shopping, it's not enough of a charge to glow.. dial stays black. Sucks because new Japanese watches glow all night.
Is this consistent with Omega lume today on new stuff?
