    3592/3572 Speedmaster with gilt 863 and luminova

    As the title suggests, Iíve been on the search for one of these transitional models, as people claim they have seen/ heard mentions of these.

    Problem is, since it is so rare, has anyone really seen/own one? Even better with pics!

    Itíll be great to know that my search is not just for some urban legend or plain bulls**ting of the ignorant.

    Thanks in advance for the input:D

    I have seen lots and lots of 3592/3572 of all types, but none had come with gilt/luminova combo.

    Unless there are pix, my going in assumption is that this is probably a myth

    I've never seen a gilt/luminova one. It was my understanding that the movement type was switched over to rhodium finish while tritium dials were still in use. I suspect any gilt/luminova watches probably have replacement hands/dials.
    I am no expert, but this is the conclusion I came to while hunting for my 3572.

    I concur, to my understanding the last year for the gilt 863 was 1997 and dials/hands were tritium at that time.

    Myth debunked then Iíd say?

    Thanks everyone, for saving me hours of fruitless wandering.

    I originally thought that I could try finding a gilt 863 model(for the looks), with luminova indices(for the practicality), but I guess Iíll just hold on to my 3572 and be glad with the ďkindaĒ sought after hesalite/sapphire sandwich ;)

    I could of wish my 3592.50 had working lume, but when I see the beautiful patina I don't mind

    Have seen them on pictures but likely the luminova dial would be a service dial and not original. If were you would just find a nice transitional 3572 with gilt 863 or a 3592.50; the patina on the older tritium dial is awesome. Here on my 3592.50
