    Lume longevity.

    I have noticed that the lume on my watch fades quickly during the night, now it might be normal and since lately I have been wearing my Seiko orange monster which has storming lume, any thoughts guys, it a 2017 gmt timewalker by the way.

    Montblanc (and honestly most dress watch lume in general) is really, really poor. It's so poor that I was questioning why even bother.

    Seiko diver watches are well know to have excellent lume.. so no news here. Montblanc doesn't have dive watches which in generally have more superluminova material and area in the dial like your Seiko which is a diver.

    They did. Not sure, but if I had to guess, the lume sucked on those too.

    You are right in the past... Seiko dive lume is better then majority of luxury brands. In Montblanc colletions what I can say is the 1858 Collection has a great Lume.

    Re: Lume longevity.

    Other than an old orange monster and a Seamaster, I've been unimpressed with lume in general. It's gotten to the point where I kind of stop paying attention to it as a selling point on watches I'm looking at. Shoot, I like it pitch black at night, and the dive watches are so bright it's almost a negative.
