I don't need another watch, but I still don't have a full-lume dial. I'm pondering something in the 40mm range, ±2mm. I found a bunch out there. I like some from Aristo. I like the Komandisrskie K34. I like the Momentum Atlas, but I'm not in love with battery-power.
Hoping for Automatic, although solar quartz is OK. I would love to stay under $400, under 42mm, and I want this thing to REALLY GLOW.
Alrighty folks - do any of you have any light to shed on this question? Here's are some samples:
K-34. My favorite so far. A bit big at 42mm. How's the lume?
Another favorite in my search, Aristo 3H17R U-Boot, small at 38mm, but that's OK. A bit pricey at $400.
A bunch of other nice Aristo full lumes, 3H41 at 38mm (small), 5H69Ti at 42+ (big)
Aeromatic with a Type B dial - I don't mind Germasian, and the price is right, but how's the lume?
Laco Marine Miyota, big at 42mm, not bad....a bit bland?
A ringer, the Seiko SNZE17, good size at 40mm, great price around $140, probably blindingly bright.
Orient EM7 - I love the design and the price, but too big and has a non-quickset date.
The Orient, Seiko and Aeromatic also make the mistake of putting lume on the hands as well as the dial. That just makes them harder to see at night.
Maybe you can talk me into a Momentum after all, despite being battery quartz. I like this Pathfinder alarm, but it's a bit small even for me.
I like the Atlas as well...but with the two sizes I'm having trouble finding the right one, 36 or 42?, lume dial or is it white?
Waddya think? Name your favorites, try to convince me! Help me make up my addled mind.
Feel free to suggest some that I haven't shown here.
