    Fabulous lighting in that photo... shows the dial and that lovely bezel very well.

    Tasty!

    Love that Speedmaster!

    I'd be willing to leave it alone except for the fact that the lume application gives an impression of untidiness. It could be the crystal and some scratches distorting it, but appears to be evident despite any crystal imperfections. I may be incorrect in my perceptions, but the lume itself appears slightly unprofessional.

    The crystal is all scratched up. It was much worse before I ‘gently’ cleaned it up a little. It looked like someone wearing the watch fell across concrete pavement. Don’t ask me how the crystal could look like that and yet the bezel is entirely undamaged. Here’s some before shots:

    I admit, I haven’t worked hard enough to remove all of the deeper marks, but it hardly seemed worth a lot of effort because I wear it regularly.

    And, a shot across the crystal today.

    Heh!

    And ashamed you should be.

    Seeing that view of the crystal I recant my judgment of the lume.

    Only kidding.

    What a stroke of luck that the watch survived whatever mishap that marred the crystal so! Surely someone didn't just install a handy used crystal, battered though it be, on a really nice watch.

    Even the best of our watches are mysteries (unless you bought it new).
