    40 years old Rolex DJ Tritium reborn with super luminova.




    Yes, its possible!

    I done it myself but please don't look for me. :P

    OK, some advice. Good relume by reputable modder will not be cheap. The service cost may cost more than your vintage seiko. If you want to go cheap , the work may not be as good as you expected. And you need to have lots of patience waiting for your project to be completed. It may even take up to 6-8months. All depends on the modder scale and workload. FInally, some modder are difficult to deal with. Uncontactable and not responsive. Some are irresponsible modder.

    I am an impatient guy and I am not willing to pay alot plus I hate to deal with those problematic modder. That's why I pick up the relume skill myself all by trial and error.

    Thanks for your compliment. This DJ is one of the easiest for relume job. Just dip the hr marker dot and relume the hands.

    The real difficult one will comes in shaping with of your lume like this Breitling aerospace. This will require many hours of practice before you start on the real expensive timepieces.



    I am surprise of the lume when I got this Breitling aerospace. The lume is non existent. I thought most 90s onward Breitling stock timepieces are lume with superluminova. Apparently, this is not. So I decide to get my hands on this project.

    Yeah, practice, and a very steady hand, which not everyone has.
