It's a superb watch in a daily role. Between the Pulsometer and this I haven’t really been wearing any other watch regularly and certainly not for more than a quick try on, for quite some time. Not what I expected when I bought it as a consolation for the fact that no Speedmaster was available to me. It's turned out to be the most wearable of many other watches I have acquired this year. I was iffy about the lume colour at first but now I am neutral about it. Even with the initial doubts the positive features of this watch for me outweighed those doubts by far so I purchased it for these merits. I can only say that it doesn’t feel out of place on this style watch. In shaded areas where it is sunny the lume brightness softens the darker tan hue to a lighter yellowish marker if you take note of those sorts of things. But it's lume's (and dials) variable looks are not altogether undesirable things imo. The artifice of the aging is apparent when analysed but it doesn’t stick out once you begin using the watch. For some even that might not be enough but I think owners who wear this piece for a short while even understand what I mean.
