    What settings? I use a cell phone.
    No filters or edits of any sorts. That's why the Seiko and pantor lume doesn't appear green. I don't have a good camera to take a good pic and I didn't use edits to try and make it look right.

    Lume on all goes down fast



    But they all stay legible til morning. Best is Pelagos then Cascais closely followed by Scurfa imo

    Good to know thanks! I'm still looking for something that can top Helson or Armida haha I know it is highly unlikely though.

    HELSON has great lume. I recall my SD's has incredibly bright lume. Don't know why you'd need brighter :)
    I think the Pelagos is on par or better and the Cascais about the same.

    Borealis Cascais Swiss STP1-11 Preorder has started

    After owning a Helson Turtle, Sharkmaster 1000 and Shark Diver 42, I can guarantee that the C3 X1 lume is brighter than all 3.
    I've owned Armida A1's, A3's, A4's and A7 and none of those compare in brightness to the C3 X1, guaranteed.

    Can't find all old pics:
    A1 45 white

    C3 X1 white dial

    Sharkmaster 1000

    C3 X1 white dial

    Shark Diver 42



    A1 45 blue

    Tough to beat the A1 IMO, but if the Cascais is on par that is still plenty good enough.

    That's pretty powerful there. Thanks for sharing. Must be the 42mm A1 ? Great option for AVS_Racing to go with.

    Yes, 42mm A1. Wears a little small and some rough edges here and there. I wish they would release one at 43mm, but still a great watch for the money and unbeatable lume. Obviously a much more toolish design than the new Borealis, so not likely a direct competing option.
