I know a few of you have used Everest Watchworks (Kent Parks) to relume some of your watches. I noticed that we do not have any reference to his site, so I wanted to make sure that we have it listed here at XMT. The site has some nice examples of his work, so go check it out!!

If you have any pictures of his work, please feel free to share it!




Here is axcerpt from his 2009 Pricelist...

Kent relumed the hands and dial on my Seiko Bullhead about three years ago. FANTASTIC WORK!

I can't wait to get it back from Bob Thayer Jr. after the remaining mechanical and cosmetic restoration is completed. He's had it about a month now, but I'm in no hurry.

For sure, look close at the orange dial out in the sun, i took that shot to show how clean his work looks when not glowing! Think Sean is racing his car this weekend but he has had kent lume some high-end stuff, sure when he see's the thread he can show some great lume shots!

I'm sure he would do a great job on the lume, but wouldn't you be worried about the seals and COSC rating afterward?

You can give him a call alan, he is a nice man and would answer your questions! I went crazy about lume but it was a faze and pretty much just happy with stock lume whether its good or bad! Kobold sucks but it sucks the same all night, some start brite but fade to nothing in a hurry! Im going to try to do some lume but first off is a sandwich dial and it will be almost impossible to screw it up! i hope..... Kent Parks/Everest Watchworks  - Relume Icon_pale

Alan,

For sure the seals would be an issue. However, COSC has nothing to do with the cased watch itself and applies ONLY to the movement. So, that aspect of the watch would remain unchanged by any work done to the watch.

The only issue would be the warranty...assuming there is still come time left...if not, go for it!!!

How can i get in contact with Kent Parks? I'm very interested in a custom 24 hr. watch he has on his site. When I've tried to E-mail him it says that the address doesn't exist. Thanks.
