    Wow, looks amazing! This might be a stupid question, but will the lume still illuminate following this treatment?

    James is a magician!
    I sent to him several dials to relume and each time the work was near to perfect!

    He allows you the choice of glowing and not glowing material. Relume is "bad" for most of the watch purist collectors but sometimes it take the watch to another level of aesthetism.

    I'll second that emotion. Before = missing tritium, badly degraded tritium, luminova, scratched paint. After = perfect. One-day turnaround.
