    Lume mod: MRW-200h

    This is my first ever mod. I bought this Casio MRW-200h because it looked good, did everything I need, and was inexpensive. I quickly discovered that the lume on this watch is poor at best. I purchased white lume from Watchlume.com. Bear in mind that I'm a total newbie. I lumed the front of all three hands. I made lume dots on the ring surrounding the watch face. I also lumed the markings at the four points on the bezel. I did not lume the numbers on the watch face as I don't trust my hand that much. Performance is exceptional. After charging the lume it glows brightly all night.

    Nice, post some pictures! I also think Casio's lume is pretty poor compared to Luminova C3 or Seiko's Lumibrite. I probably made the same experience with weak lume on the more expensive GW-3000. I don't know if they have improved on the new Aviator series though.

    cool, you should also do a set of pics at different time intervals, to see how it does over time.

    my only issue is that you can clearly see the error in the brush strokes, but i guess since its inexpensive its more function over beauty.

    I don't think i'd have the guts to try it on a more expensive aviator

    Nice mod. The lume looks fine and bright. That's my only concern about this model, the bad lume.
