    Glowing Hands?

    Just picked up
    Casio Men's G Shock GA100SD 8A Black Dial Beige Band Military Watch New 079767913960 | eBay

    Noticed that the hands do not glow, but the numbers, i mean the dots where the numbers would go glow. Is that right? I mean, why would the dots glow but not the hands? You say just push the light button if you want to tell the time. Ok, but then you wouldn't need the dots to glow, right?

    Weird...

    I have the same watch. The hands don't have lume but the markers do. I don't know why they did this.

    Re: Glowing Hands?

    The picture you talked about from the ebay link, with LED and lumed markers, was likely copied and modified from Watch Tanaka. Here are the original pictures: GA-100SD-8AJF CASIO G-SHOCK Desert Beige Series - Watch Tanaka

    The GA-100 models in general have very little lume, if any, on the hands or markers. The Tanaka pictures were taken with professional photography, and probably exaggerated the quality of the lume.

    I wonder why it is that Casio used a poor lume on something like the GA-1000 when Seiko can use super bright Superluminova on even their entry level watches? It seems such a pity that Casio designed such a great watch but felt the need to really skimp on something as important as lume on a pilot's watch.
