    Lume dangerous

    Is the lume on a old 1960 omega pie pan constellation dangerous? Iím inquiring because Iíve looked at the dial and noticed some have flaked off and whatever is left on the dial and markers does not glow.

    I think I'm right in saying that Omega stopped using Radium in their dials around 1963?

    Some watchmakers still use old stock of this thing to relume, I just don't know why it is dangerous nor if it is better than the safer products.
