    Roadmaster Challenger "Starlight" Pre-Order

    Another nice one with some different colors - green, blue & black - for those that missed the last Roadmaster. This one is day/date only, and 40 or 43 mm in COSC or non-COSC models.

    Do you know of what you speak? The bezel contains NO tritium except, possibly, a pip at 12. Otherwise, pretty much standard fare for lines such as the Engineer Hydrocarbons, currently with nearly 20 watches in the stable, with a long history of similar models--one of the main model line ups in the Ball watch inventory...(the bezel for all of these of course have "traditional" (luminova) lume...)

    I like the green-on-green. Does anyone know if the bracelet clasp has micro-adjustment?

    Yes. It's very similar to what is used on the TAG Aquaracer.

    Hey boys, never posted before, but thinking of selling my fireman storm chaser glow and getting this.

    Love rotating bezels and love lume. Live for lume (which is why I bought the fireman glow)

    I suppose my question is, do you think the lume is going to be close to the fireman glow. I realize that there are more tubes in the fireman, but I also think colour may contribute. The readability is tough for a glance on the fireman and I think the roadmaster would be better.

    Thanks

    Not sure if the lume will be similar to the Fireman Glow, but I'm certain it will be plenty bright and visible. I used to have a EMII DLC with blue tubes forming the numerals and yellow tubes in the hands. That was super easy to read at any time of day. Stupidly, I sold it to fund another purchase and still miss it.

    For the Roadmaster, I think I would have liked to see the hands be another color like yellow to help them contrast more with the numerals, but I understand green is the brightest tube color.

    It needs a different color tritium on the hands. Too much green for me. A breakup of color would aid in telling the time quicker.
