    Has there been any discussion on how the new X1 C3 Lume compared to the everyday superluminova C3?

    Hi,

    You can search for pics of the Luxmento watches online (sorry I'm at work now, can't provide links), they seem to be using the stuff on request. They have a few comparison pics with the C3 on their various photo sharing platforms.

    Bottom line, on picture it does seems to be a bit brighter, but IIRC, it will last a lot longer than regular C3.

    Cheers!

    Not sure how I feel about the images of the prototypes.

    The blue seems much darker then I expected. The 3D renders shown earlier seemed to have a lighter, almost gray blue color (which I liked because it seemed unusual).

    I also think it's strange that the BGW9 markers don't seem any whiter then the C3 markers. Maybe it's just the poor photograph?

    from what I see the bezel insert is too thin, numbers need more room they are too close to the border IMHO

    I asked and was told the lume is a lot stronger than the Prometheus Piranha so it'll be more powerful than any Seiko I own or have owned.



    Piranha for comparison

    The case finishing is outstanding. I'm finding it hard to resist the blue.

    That's true, a very unique and good looking watch. But Imho it looks a bit strange that the minute markers before and behind the numbers on the bezel are missing, e.g. the missing marker for minute 14.
