    Which one has the best lume? PELAGOS VS PANERAI VS BLANCPAIN FIFTY fathoms

    Hi guys, i am a lume maniac and love to see good lumes. From what I read, these 3 watches pelagos, bp fifty fathoms and panerai, they are all great in their lumes.

    Now for those of you who knows, can you tell me which among these 3 has the best lume?

    I have seen the panerai's lume briefly in store, it was exposed to light and i covered the dial with my hands and i could see that the lume is crazy on pams. but i dont know about the other 2 though.

    Guys, please tell me. and if you happen to have one of these , why not share pics for me and for others as well : ) let the pics talk too if possible. But on serious note, i really would love to know which one has the strongest lume.

    thanks guys.

    The Pelagos has the best lume that I have seen on any watch.

    Pelagos lume is indeed amazing. It is not just bright but also extremely sharp, which adds to its night time legibility.

    The FF and Pelagos have better lume than Panerai.

    And you didn't list a specific model for Panerai.

    I can't speak for the other two, but I've got no complaints with the Fifty Fathoms except for maybe the lack of lume on the dive bezel other than the pip.

    I can't speak to these specific watches but I did a small experiment this summer involving lume. The watches tested where my Rolex Explorer II, Omega Planet Ocean, Seiko Turtle, and Ball Skindiver II. My plan was to take pictures right after I charged them with my Surefire, then again in 5/10/15/20/30/45/60 mins and thereon. Unfortunately my camera skills where not up to documenting the results very well, so I never posted anything about it.

    The outcome was basically as follows...The lume on all the Rolex, Omega, and Seiko were exceptionally bright from the beginning. However, from the point of about 15-20 minutes in, the tritium on the Ball started to outshine them all, and being tritium you know how the story goes from there. Keep in mind that not all tritium watches are made equal, and that this particular watch puts to shame all other tritium watches I have owned (Marathon, Luminox). Still, I was rather surprised at how quickly the benefit of the brightly charged lumes faded, and how quickly the tritium watch proved itself superior.

    Oh sorry my bad, i thought all pam models have the same lume. so they are different eh?

    Ok what about pam 510?

    so between pelagos and ff 50 = which one is more superior?
