    Please Sinn.....

    Of all the areas Sinn shines, it sure ain’t the lume. While adequate and gets the job done, and last all night albeit dimly, and almost impossible to see if my eyes aren’t adjust to the dark, it’s a bit subpar. But.....you’d think that with Sinns emphasis on tech they’d be at the forefront but in my opinion they seem to be lagging behind even against lower price point watches.

    Please Sinn step up your lume game to make your watches truely shine!

    Re: Please Sinn.....

    Agree 100%

    Just as long the lume stays bright white. I’m not a fan of Seiko’s new lume looking green in daylight.

    T1 on the left & EZM9 on the right.

    Sinn U212 and a $380 Seiko Turtle.

    Initial lume, nice and bright, and last pic only after 10 minutes, doesn’t seem to hold charge very well.

    Spring-diver, in your observation, between the T1 and your EZM9 which has the longer lasting lume?

    It’s hard to compare Sinn, or anybody else, to Seiko. Seiko makes their Lumibrite, Sinn buys SNL. That being said, Sinn still needs to up their game in the lume department. Maybe a couple more layers or develop their own compound.

    I love my Sinn’s, but it’s not for their lume burn time

    They’re the same. If I charge them at 10pm I can read it at 6am. Only my Seiko’s are just a little brighter for the same time.

    Lume longevity/ intensity isn’t super important to me IRL. If I’m going to be in a dark/ night time environment for an extended period I’ll have a headlight or torch anyway. So I can always recharge when needed.

    Actually, while I would agree the initial lume brightness dies out pretty quick, it burns at a very steady state over night, where others dies completely. My Sinn's, if charged, are readable the entire night.

    Excellent, thank you.
    In agreement.

    I have no problem with the brightness of the lume of my 104. Is it the greatest...no. But as far as disappointments go, it's so much more of a let down when you pay a lot more for a timepiece and get less than mediocre results (...did someone say Sea Dweller?...) My only issue is that I wish the lume on the minute hand would have been applied evenly. It's clearly very thin in the center
