    ++Update++ Open again since I keep getting requests

    For sale are containers with tritium powder. I got my hands on quite a big amount of this stuff during a close down of a local watchmaker workshop and used it over the years when restoring watches. I usually mixed it up with some matte binder and it's ready to use. Once it has dried it reveals the typical texture of the old lume

    I tried to capture the behavior under UV light which is an instant tell if the material is original or not. It glows green and quickly fades within roughly a second.

    I am asking 250€ each, which seems expensive but keep in mind that one container of lume powder is easily enough material to relume more than 15 watches. I hope the pictures do justice, if requested I am happy to share some more photos.

    Both sold!
    In case anyone is still in need, reach out and try to convince me. Maybe I'm willing to part with more of the stuff

    Thanks to OF!

    Not really. It was one big chunk when I got it since it completely dried out in its box. I processed it with multiple rounds of grinding and sieving. Now it’s a nice uniform powder :thumbsup:

    Thought it might be helpful to share some results of my work with the tritium lume.

    This is what it looks like applied to speedy dials with its natural color using only regular binder to mix the lume:
