    Weak Lume

    I have an MBiii and in general am very pleased except regarding the very weak luminescence of its dial.
    I was under the impression that Bremont pride themselves on their superior lume, applying as many as 12 coats of Super Lumina, well I have not been impressed; compared to my Sea Dweller which has been in its box over the past week, my MBiii is much dimmer.
    Is this a common finding or just my particular example?
    Thanks for you opinions.

    Post a picture of your illuminated MBII dial, maybe next to your Sea Dweller.

    The numerals on my MBII definitely have the weakest lume of my current rotation:


    (Omega PO 45.5 & PAM 438 for reference)

    comparable hands and not a deal breaker for me though.

    I too remember the two MBIIs that I previously owned having weak lume on the numerals, but the lume on the hands were strong. I also didn't mind since it was a bit of a trade off, considering all the technology packed in the MBII.

    Lume is not the MBII strong point. Surface areas are small with hour hand only having a small tip. If you want Lume on a Bremont you need a Supermarine. Those have large luminous surfaces including the bezel. Pilot watches are generally not known for their Lume, with the Zenith type20 being near the top.
