    Deep Blue

    So I just picked a Deep Blue Master 1000. Nice watch, nicely built for the price and the Isofane style strap is comfortable. The only really complaint I have is for a Divers watch the lume is almost non- existent. I can live with it as the watch was cheap enough, but Deep Blue really need to work on that.

    Depends on the watch. All of my Deep Blues offer great Lume.

    Until DB steps up their lume game on a consistent basis, I’ll only buy tritium from them. It’s a great medium-term solution until the tritium had faded enough in 12ish years to make it useless...
    Embrace the suck. “The suck”, is NOT associated with the watch for sale below...

    Re: Deep Blue

    Had a Nato Diver for a while.

    First one had very weak lume... I returned it soon after for a faulty screw down crown.

    Complete replacement watch arrived with incredible lume, but less than 60 days later this happened:

    Returned for another replacement watch, and dumped it quickly on that auction site.

    My experience with Deep Blue watches is that the more money you're willing to spend, the brighter the lume will be. Super Luminova ain't cheap!

    Similar feedback on the lume for my new Diver 1000 40mm. It's not horrible, but it's not like my SMPc.

    I'd say the lume on my Deep Blue Diver 1000 40mm is on-par with the lume on my Oris ProPilot.

    I have a quartz sea Quest. $100

    The lume is not superluminova as it is slower to charge and green in daylight like C3 but glows blue like BGW9.

    That said...it is excellent. super bright and very long lasting. Easily easily on par with good BGW9.

    It is odd how inconsistent their lume game is though, especially for a brand I feel uses it as part of their marketing.

    The bigger the bucks the brighter the lume.

    I had a similar experience with a brand-new DB watch. Because of that and some other issues, I have not bought another one since then.
