    Montblanc 1858 Small Second Limited Edition Lume

    Hi, I recently purchased the 1858 Small Second Limited Edition and I love the watch. I am surprised however that the lume doesn't seem very good. Once it is charged the lume is very bright but only stays bright for a few minutes. Then it will stay very faint for a long time. Maybe I am used to Rolex diver lume staying bright for a long time, but for such a well made watch I'm surprised the lume isn't better. Anyone had the same experience or can comment? Thank you!!

    Several readers, but no comments...

    Here is what I found on the web, but Montblanc doesn't even seem to meet these standards:

    "SuperLuminova and Luminova coatings function well for about an hour in the dark, and then its light intensity gradually drops until is is just visible, 8 hours later."

    I know what you mean, I had only Ball watches before and was disappointed with the Montblanc because of the lume... so if all watches with Luminova have this problem, I stick to my Balls!


    You have to buy a Ball Watch with gastubes... Lights for 20 years in the dark...
    Watching a nice watch give me watch-fever !
