    Sinn 809 question

    I'm interested in the the firefighter edition of the 809, and I see it has markings for tritium, yet the markers are on the crystal, not the dial. Can these be relumed somehow during a service, or does that require a new crystal altogether?

    found this example of the "floating" markers from uhrforum.de.
    We stole the Eagle from the Air Force; the Anchor from the Navy; the Rope from the Army, and on the seventh day when God rested, we overran His perimeter and
    stole the Globe, and have been protecting our shores ever since.

    such a wacky design, love it: the 800 series was a blast. If you're in the states, you might ask Jack Alexyon at IWW: he's done quite a bit of relume work and may know if the superluminova will stick to glass.

    Thanks David, I will email him on Monday. The more I look at it, the more I want one. It gets the viewing angle like the Hydros, but in entirely different way, and the dial has a depth thanks to the floating indices. Just a really neat piece.
