    Going through basement and found this...(Update with more pics)

    I was going through all if my old plastic storage tubs in the basement and found an old watch that someone gave me years ago. Maybe 8 to 10 years or more, I don't honestly remember.

    When I moved years ago I thought I had lost it. Pretty small watch but it was a gift so I kept it. Still fun finding unexpected things.

    Turned out the lights and what do you know, instant fully charged glow. Are those tritium tubes I see? :D

    Well, tritium is Luminox's signature, and the time period you mentioned is well within the lifespan of the tritium tubes currently in use.

    That said, I did not know BMW ever did a co-branding with Luminox. That is quite cool.

    Off Topic: I saw your avatar, and now keep imagining your post being read in Pop's voice. It's a little disconcerting.

    The person that gave it to me was my mother's boyfriend of yore. At that time he worked at Barron BMW and got a discount in the gift shop. Bought the family BMW accessories.

    Regarding Pops. My kids and I love Regular Show, and watch it quite often together. :D

    Like finding a mini treasure chest.

    I'd love to be able to experience that too.

    It doesn't happen often enough. Now if I could just get the night lum shot to work I would post it. It's not crazy bright being that it is quite a few years old but still much brighter than my other watches.

    Wow that's pretty cool especially considering how BMW has stuck with the tritium tubes but is working with Ball watch now.
