    Off topic Anybody ever notice that analog watch lumes react to warm and cold water too?

    Does anybody know why?

    Kinda cool.

    If you can't find light to see the watch lumes, just stick it under some warm or cold water.

    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    Hang on, are you trying to say that your lume glows as a direct result of sticking it in water???

    Please explain once more... I'm thinking you might have auto EL activated, and it's just a coincidence that the light goes on when you run it under water.

    I thought people have done this before.

    If you put your watch under warm water.

    The watch lumes light up really bright.

    You will notice it.

    But, it won't last that long compared to putting it under a light.

    Do you mean Luminova as on analog watches, or G-Shock ELs?

    Yes, the lumes on an analog watch.

    It is impossible to get the lumes to react under water with digital watches.
