    “Lume” and all its attributes have become such a hot issue since the value of sport watches have sailed through the roof (we talk about its shape, depth, integrity, and consistency), and it’s no surprise that some creative sellers have given us a palate of various colors to choose from. Here are some that I’ve seen...share yours:

    Ivory
    Creamy
    Honey
    Chocolate
    Washed

    And my recent favorite, “Medium Sage.”

    Sounds like we are talking about something else which has far more impact on our daily well- being.

    Chernowatch (after I explained the radium hands of the watch in my avatar to a colleague). Possibly not a selling point.

    Just found this gem:

    The patina on the glossy black gilt dial appears like stones on the bottom of a river bed. ... The lume plots have turned a warm sandy hue...

    Damn, that’s some fine writing.

    @Duracuir1 : I suppose your argument is that life is just a box of lume patina.
