    Hello,

    Just wanted to share some pics of the aged tritium/ZnS lume of my 105.012s I recently took

    Small particles are quite volatile and may and end up anywhere in the watch.
    Large lume parts can detach from the hands after a shock or just normal ageing.

    105.012-66 (not original hands but nice match with indexes patina)

    105012-65 (relumed I guess)

    Will soon make new pics of 1969s reference to compare

    Cheers!

    Closest lume shots I can get with my 10x loupe
    The hands are NOS and as you can see, the dial tritium is degrading pretty good. image.jpeg
