    Seiko 50m watch.......but assistance required

    and the lume is pretty good. But I would like to buy a highly luminous watch for night driving and the choice on here is vast to say the least. I have a budget of £250/euros 300/$395 so choice is limited.

    Here are my preferences:
    a)Hands(mercedes style hands preferred) and Markers/nos must be easily read in fading light and night time.
    b)Max case size 40mm X 9/10mm depth max.
    c)Preferably with some red and blue in face but not essential
    d)Laid back sporty style preferred as watch will be worn most of the time.
    e)Quite like some of the divers styles such as the Seiko SKX007 (or Speedbird style) but 42mm dial too big!

    If any of you more Knowledgeable types can name me a few watches I will be very grateful

    Thanks in anticipation

    Is this the watch you're looking for?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Seiko-5-Automatic-Sports-Watch-SNZF15-SNZF15J1-Japan-/290534761292?pt=AU_Watches&hash=item43a538a34c

    It comes really close to your description, except for the Mercedes hands. And although the description says 44mm, it's 44mm with the crown. Excluding the crown, it's 40mm. I own the black version.

    Lume is good for about 1 hr while driving, no lume glow is strong for hours on end, unless the watch uses tritium.

    SBCM023/025.



    023 is all black.
    025 is the pepsi, but I don't know if you can buy it new anymore.

    Hi Issues. If you don't mind quartz, and can live without the mercedes hands, take a look at the Mondaine night vision.
    It has tritium tubes on the dial and hands, so it will alwys be visble in the dark...it will not slowly get dimmer. (not for many years anyway)

    They come with black or white dials, bracelets or leather. Here's a link if you shop around you may get a better price than this. Mondaine Sport I Men's Night Vision Watch If you dont like the style maybe you could look at other tritium dialed wtches. I have a Tsar myself...nothing better for night time visbility.

    Regards.

    Try this guy, the Marathon Navigator:



    It's quartz, though, don't know if that is a problem. Traser also has a sub 40mm watch that has tritium.
    TAG Heuer Monaco LE|Omega Speedmaster|Seamaster 300MC|Rolex Submariner|Tudor Ranger

    How did it get so late so soon?
