Congratulations on graduating Oskar! It's a beautiful watch I've been impressed by a lot of the Orient Star watches.

commented on How long does your lume last? ยท

My Zelos lasts pretty much all night if well charged. Most of the others last between 45 minutes to 2 or 3 hours. One thing strange I've noticed is a couple of my "neo" vintage watches 60s, 70s & 80s not the really old ones will have the bright green lume display in strong sunlight practically glowing but will die out with in 1 to 2 minutes in the dark. My Seiko 7002 & a late 60s dive watch are the two biggest examples. I always expected the lume to not to really function anymore after 40, 50 & some cases almost 60 years but don't really understand the "glow" in strong daylight..

I agree the sweep on the seconds hand is great. My LM is probably my favorite watch right now. It's really hard to pick a favorite seems wrong like saying one of your children is your favorite๐Ÿ˜ฌ

For me Rolex, Omega & Cartier is recognized by the general public as luxury brands. Other watch brands are tied to specific sports, industries or the military. Along these lines I think of Tag Heuer-racing, IWC-Pilots, Squale/Doxa-Divers etc. Other brands are more watch enthusiast brands-microbrands in general, vintage brands and more hardcore brands like GS, JLC, Glashutte, Nomos etc
