Nice job Ron. The bezel lume looks like an exact match for the dial. Did you clearcoat it afterward?

Really great job Ron, I have a few watches that I'd like to relume. Did you have any problems removing the excess paint off of the bezel?

Ordered from Jules Borel and they send only the lacquer and the invoice said the thinner and orange powder is on backorder. So I call and asked how long.. at least a month from Switzerland, that was on the 20th.
I may get the orange from Noctilumina.

finally got the orange lume today, Jules Borel was taking to long so I looked around and found some LUM-TEC pigment on ebay. Mixed it with some omni clearcoat and hardener this time, applied with a brush. Far from professional but turned out pretty good, a few touch ups tomorrow.

some late inside shots..
