I have a vintage Adriatica in a quite decent state, both visually and mechanically. I really like the nice patina on the hands. However, this is also the source of my concern. How fragile is this old lume paint? I'm sort of afraid to wear the watch, because I've seen a lot of photos of nasty holes in such paint. Is there a way to somehow fix the paint, or what is the best way to preserve it? Is there a danger the paint will crumble away due to physical stress while wearing the watch?
This is my watch.
I would hate to see the hands deteriorate like this.
