I'm impressed the Galaxy S8 could get the green minute hand in low light. iPhone 7 missed the green in my TAG outright.

Sorry, I had to try a lume/cellphone shot.

iPhone 6.

Not nearly as nice as the above Speedies, but...

Finally got a replacement battery and re-siliconed the o-ring on this one:



It'll be back to daily wear status now.

This was only in the sun for a minute or so, but Rolex doesn't use lume as bright as Omega or Seiko. To me, Seiko's lume is the brightest. I like the color, though.

Can't go wrong with a good field watch as a daily watch.

I like it. It has a nice, clean, easy-to-read face, like a Swiss Railroad Station clock. "Form follows function," as Louis Sullivan famously said, and as was made famous by the Bauhaus Movement.

UV lights are you friend for lume pics. A little shot brings your lume to full power. I finally got a strap for my Seamaster. This watch feels SOOO much nicer without the bracelet. The bezel is also easier to turn as well.



After 5 days, it's at +10 sec (or +2 a day). My TAG Aquaracer is +10 after 2 days. I'm liking this so far.

I picked up a Seiko Diver a few weeks ago. It came on a "jubilee" bracelet which I did not care for so I put it on a "Bond" NATO. I like it.



I also started a Go Fund Me for my Omega Smile
