    It looks like the printed Sea Turtle dial has a lot less SuperLuminova vs. the Hawksbill Sea Turtle dial with applied indices. The word that gets me thinking more about this is "printed" in Nadim's 1st post description. For example Helson Shark Diver is heavily applied and raised off dial. Whereas the Sea Turtle looks flat. Is this correct thinking? If so, then I think I will go Hawksbill. Thoughts?

    Better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done...

    But, be clear: the Shark Diver IS a "printed dial" yes? So...a "printed dial" CAN BE "heavily applied" and produce that "tasty glow" we all love!
    I believe Nadim addressed this issue earlier in the thread... I recollect him saying that the Turtle's lume may be "slightly better" than the Hawkbill due to the "bordered indices" on the hour markers. Also, considering the hands of the Turtle; they're broader (the hour hand is) and could hold more lume... More "surface area" on the Turtle's dial for C3 application.
    If the lume on this watch...is as good as the lume on the Octopus...then, there should be no worries.

    I can't confirm whether the prototype I have has exactly the same amount of lume as production versions will have but with well adjusted eyes I can wake in the small hours and still tell the time just as I can with my Octopus. It mightn't instantly glow as bright as my Octopus once both are charged but it appears to last almost as long from my experience.

    Of course this is with the applied markers on the Hawksbill but according to Nadim the SeaTurtle should be slightly brighter so it's all good.



    Here's a quick comparison between the lumes on my Octopus to that of the SeaTurtle Hawksbill.

    At the pre-order price limited production might as well buy 2.

    LoL. Right? Believe me; I'm struggling with it... I'm "on the hook" with 3 pre-orders already and, considering my watch box "runneth over" right now, I may need to apply the brakes a bit.
    Couldn't resist that marron dial though... The motion is still "up for debate"! lol.
