AF is actually the second grade lume from swiss. Tritec is the number 1 brand. Watchlume's product is designed to match tritec lume.

*Please note that the part of the numeral that looks unlumed are not, it is just a misalignment of the dial and the base plate as I have just put them together in a hurry to show the results

Luming of hands is coming up from gareth( watch-lume)

Rolex dials reluming tutorials will be added soon.

Just tried your C1 on the hands of my Sinn U2. After mixing like you suggested, applying the hands was not too hard.. next is the dial! I'll document the rest in the Other Brands section so i avoid double posting. But just 2 pics taken from my iphone here as a bump for the great lume! Thanks!

Just did a comparison between using Watchlume ultimate green + watchlume binder vs AF-Luminova Green + AF binder.

Conclusions :

Watchlume is significantly brighter compared to AF after exposure to 10 sec of UV and of course both are much brighter compared to rep lume. This is a donor Cali dial and on the left (inclusive of 12 marker) is watchlume and on the right is AF-Lume (inclusive 6 marker) Numerals 8 and 5 are intentionally left untouched (ie rep lume) for a comparison. Well, with my iphone the results are not SO obvious, but they are. Well done Watchlume!
