    Thank you both(Mazoue and jumpingsecond). I'm not sure if I should pull the trigger. The crosshair looks good to me.
    so as the applied logo. My only concern is the lume on the hands and the dots. Don't know what to do :/

    Crosshair looks okay now on my computer. Maybe contact seller and ask him for more info re. Relume and any other questions.

    One thing this has is that nice case that makes it wear bigger. Looks OK to me.

    What is wrong with the lume on hands and dots? it does look like it has been redone and whoever did it, made a good job of it. As long as it is in line with reference and done conscientiously (not like something out of playschool which it is not) I would say it is acceptable and an enhancement. rather than a reason to pass. Most lume of that age (tritium), no longer glows anyway. There are different lines of thought on the matter. However, I cant really see what the fuss is about.

    I also think that a good relume job very often enhances the look of a watch, although I know that not everyone shares that view. Some seem to prefer the original lume, however dark or grubby (although I think most would agree that a good relume is better than having missing lume).

    I didn't buy it, I should have added - not because I didn't like it though just because I bought something else.

    He name-checks Clapton, he's done some research. On him if he did not realize the full value.

    Certainly not something I'd go nuts over but thanks for the schooling. Was PM alerted by a member who knows my love of gold UG's.
