What watch are you wearing today (WRUW)

Seeing this photo makes me think that I’m really going to like the white full-lume face I’m having installed to replace the Gradient black dial on my field watch. I struggle to read the time in low light with the lume on the black face.
That is EXACTLY why I like white dials! I'm blind in one eye already and the full dial lume really helps in both light and dark situations.

Birth year ('88) 3000 🤟 - Aged tritium lume aside, it looks like new.
Love the way aged lume looks on the older / vintage watches.....just wish it still "lumed" like it did when new. That faded yellow/cream/orange color looks great an a lot of older watches but the lume is gone. I hear there are people who will "re-lume" the dial pips and markers.....

Indeed you can... I think @Wayne did his own re-lume a while ago (may have been posted on here or TSR, not sure.) It looks easy enough if you have a steady hand and patience.

I like the aged lume look but only on old watches... Faux aged lume which has been in fashion for a few years now is a bit meh.
