Hey guys. I'm no noob to watches and I know that lume fades over the years, but can lume get brighter if it is a new watch? I've gone through a lot of divers and know what strong lume is. Reason for my question, is that I just purchased a fortis Marinemaster from Jomashop about a week ago and was underwhelmed by the lume the first few days. A few days ago I put a 300 lumen led flashlight to it about 5 times throughout the day for about 30 seconds each time, and the lume seems to have "opened up." It's taking a charge easier and lasting longer. I wanna say the same thing happened to my Oris when I bought it at torneau, they didn't give me the display model, but one from the back. Who knows how long it was sitting on the shelf in its case in complete darkness. Same with Jomashop, who knows how long my watch sitting in pitch black. I know what strong lume is. According to reviews, the new fortis marine masters with blue lume are supposed to be pretty legit in the lume department. Is there such a thing as "waking the lume up from sleep?!?!"
