    Great pictures you guys found. But, I'm going to be honest. I don't like the aged tritium look on a white dial. Love it on a dark dial, but not on white.

    Well from the pure functional view point the age lume should help the readability against the white dial. But then again I agree with BigHaole that it's not that good looking. Plus I don't like the idea of artificiality which I associate to aged lume on a new watch.

    How is it artificial? It is new but created in that color. It would be like saying pink is artificially aged red? It is just a color choice as far as I m concerned. I do like some contrast between the dial and lume colors myself. I am not on either side of this. I like C3 and was just posting pictures for information.

    I highly doubt that Bill will use the vintage color lume and I think he is looking at a white/gilt dial and not a white/black dial which would also affect the lume choice.

    Also I do not think that there is anything artificial looking about TheDude's PAM. It just looks really well put together and I dig the aesthetic.

    I see that people are prefer a black dial on a root beer.

    Would a dark brown be a deal breaker? I like the way the gilt works with the black on the Kingston but I think brown/gilt would be a really great combo.

    At first I wasn't interested in a white dialed GMT.....but after seeing this I think I've changed my mind. Everything about this GMT hits the right cords with me.....colors / patina / lume.....

    Do you think "Natural" SuperLuminova would fit the bill?
