    First attempt at lume painting

    I have had this watch for a while now and it never worn, the main reason there was no lume on the dial, only the hands
    So I figured I would give painting some lume the dial a go.
    Before




    After


    And it does glow


    Itís not the neatest job but it will do for me and will likely mean the watch will get a bit more wear than before.

    For reference I used one of the lume kits with syringe applicator, the paint was a bit more fluid than I thought it would be so I am glad I gave it a bit of practice on some card before attempting the dial.

    I think that's quite a good job for a fist attempt well done .

    I have always been nervous at lume plots , have done a few hands which are easier.

    Great work on tailoring something to your own needs and with your own effort

    Looks like an MOD dial

    It does have a certain rough and ready quality
