    I borrowed a colleagues phone to actually upload a pic fo my maxi dial now, I was beginning to feel left out :)

    It's on a nylon strap from Aliasmarlow, most beautiful bond style I've ever seen, although you might doubt that from my horrible pic.

    No. Their lume is both about the same. What I have learned over the months with lume is that it is more dependent on the situation. Lume is always going to be at its strongest right after you've been in a lighted area (especially outdoors); even on a cloudy day; and then you enter a dark area.

    As for average use, your watches will always glow the brightest when your eyes have adjusted to the dark. Cameras don't always tell the full story, so to speak.

    Put the bracelet back on my Heri-Bay too. As you can tell from the clasp its strictly a desk diver lol. While it looks good on straps I'm more inclined towards the bracelet as its most natural attire. Or maybe I'm just too lazy to deal with straps. Hah!

    I feel that the 20 Atmos looks best on its bracelet. I have tried mine on NATOs and leather, but to me, the bracelet is just really nice.

    I just couldn't bond with my heritage and ended up selling it last week. I found the AR coating poor, which was a shame because with no glare looking at it from a mirror it looked awesome, just couldn't get past it.. Something was just off about it for me. Chris

    Just received my 50 atmos. Crickey, it's a beauty! And that Milanese mesh bracelet is amazing. I was a little surprised to find a little play in the bezel action, but I'm still wrapped in the watch. Sits beautifully on the wrist. Looks good despite the relatively small size and is super comfy with the recessed 4:00 crown. Yet to see the lume performance.

    Here's a happy snap.

    does the recessed crown make it harder to unscrew?
