    FO Serial Lume?

    Just a quick question

    The LE Lume photos I've seen show that the minute and the hour markers are lumed. The Lume shot of the Automatic version shows that only the hour markers are lumed.

    Does anyone know of the serial edition of the FO has lumed minute markers?

    I did a quick search and didn't see a serial edition lume shot (apologies if it exists).

    I'm hoping the serial edition shares a dial with the limited edition - those lumed minutes just look fantastic. (ok I'm a sucker for lume )

    Oh yea......The serial version has the lumed minute markers as well as the lumed seconds hand. It's also one of the best and most legible night watches I've seen.

    Is there reason why Airman Auto do not have minutes lume?

    Smaller dial, much smaller minute markers, different watch in most every way, except the timeless style.

    Here's a few for your review. Yes, I am a lume junky.

    Yes, I noticed that. But it doesn't explain why not just use lume paint instead of white paint.

    From my experience in luming dials, it is not practical nor can it be very aesthetic.

    The amount of luminous material used on those extremely small markers can't really be applied in enough quantity for it to be luminous enough.
