    Not to cross swords because I seem to attract that lately, but mike said he's seen a few over the years and his collection is beyond belief. I'm just newbie watch collector who buys watches for watches, not for lume. lol If it is, it is, if it isn't then ok! I love this watch though! :)

    Not crossing swords at all, I believe it was added. I could be wrong, who knows. Sometime dealers added these at the time of purchase. It is a nice watch either way. You could always put a gieger counter on it, would at least tell you if it was old. ;)

    I have a virtually identical 2852 with non-luminous dial. Interesting to compare...

    haha, probably mike will say the same! it's all a mystery..:unsure: Thanks adam, it may have been added as the markers are still underneath, but I guess they'd add the lume after anyway...?

    Evening switch - cut night. Will it make it or go on the sales forum?
