Here are my latest lume frenzy! Not a true diver but wht, here it goes:
I wanted to try a tritium dial watch and picked this Sottomarino watch.
Here it is before i begun, No lume at all. Only the tritium.

Oh NICE Surbarbro ! cheers What a great job !!! VERY cool, and different.
It's neat how the hands, along with chapter ring look in daylight with
them having that unique green yellow look, but then REALLY light up
in the dark. Awesome job once again, and congratulations on it turning
out so nice !

Im satisfied with how it turned out, It was obvious to me it was gonna be different because of the tritium tubes occupying the space were lume traditionally goes.

At first i tried to get some recommended modder to do it but they refused because of the tritium. If i try it once more on a watch with tritium tubes il try to remove the tubes first, Apply the lume and then add the tubes. That will give the details some more character i think cheers
