    This wont be a quality post, as im very limited in time.


    Replacing lume dot is a very easy procedure anyone can do:


    1) Select the vintage lume syringe here and buy it: http://storecube.com/watchlume/index...&product_id=55

    2) practice a little bit, like placing small lume dots on any plastic surface u like.

    3) When u feel comfortable everything works fin, remove the existing pip with like a small screwdriver, add a new one.


    What I should add:

    1) I do not own this watch and just speak from general experience.

    2) Im not affiliated / get anything for my recommendation

    3) If the colour is not spot on, you may need to purchse a bigger set and have to mix yourself, its very simple. Big set with many colours cost USD 55 as far as I know.

    4) the lume dot may shrink when drying, to a less nice form, so one has to apply some more lume etc, to get a really nice pip.

    5) the lume is waterresist.

    Just put mine in the oven and as can be seen above tones the pip down to a similar yellow to the aged Lume!

    Thats the other option. Maybe even less invasive, as one does not have to destroy the existing lume dot. The colour of the lume I recommended should be a little bit darker/more brown though, and therefore fit better...



    If replaced like in my recommendation, the lume dot would not look as perfectly shaped. I would prefer that. Also, it would not have to be raised. I would prefer that too. The only downsides of the PRS-82 are, in my very personal opinion, the white (and too perfectly shaped, plastic-like looking) lume dot and the too long hands. Otherwise a very tempting watch.

    Here an example, where I made a custom lume dot with lume from the recommended retailer, in this case a red one (actually nearly everything on this watch is custom, dial, hands, crystal, bezel insert):

    Having sold my original 82 to fund a grail, I'm back in the fold again this time with 14050240. This one is running a little slow at the moment (-17 seconds per day) but hoping she'll settle down after a few weeks on the wrist.
    Would have been nice to have it with me in Turkey last week, I took my MM300 and it's quite a lump on 40 degree C days - the Precista is so much more comfortable and it's nice to know that Roland used a viton gasket on the case back which should be more resilient to anti-mossie sprays etc.

    Number 232 now with me in Budapest. I have had to exercise some patience as I ordered it in June but had it delivered to my parents so that I could collect it during a rare visit to the UK. Worth waiting for!

    First post here from a long-time lurker... PRS-82 #140 just reached me today. I am the second owner, but based on how much I love it so far I expect to be the last one. :)

    Just to keep the list updated, #76 has moved (with me) to Perth, Western Australia. Looking forward to summer and using it as intended.

I don't know of many businesses that would chase a customer, rather it's up to the customer to get their information right. Something tells me you have an unconscious tendency to get satisfaction from acting as a disgruntled customer and complaining, which in this case has prevented you from getting what you originally wanted; the watch itself.

    You should know that there is probably another batch of these being released next week.
    Number 40 emigrated from Wales to Hertford. Thanks Ric!

    Aagh! How do I know what number I have? All I've got is number 14050227 on the case and warranty card!

    Edit: Just ploughed through the later posts and found the answer, so I guess I'm the very happy current owner of #227!
