To lume or not to lume? That is the question

There’s been a lot of interest and discussion recently on the merits of lume on watches. For me, I have some and my choice falls into four groups - brighten the night, full lume; hands lumed only; tri...

I have the GS Winter and the Omega AT. The GS wears smaller, has a higher level of overall finish, and is more accurate. Both are beautiful watches, but if I had to choose one it would be the GS. 

Robcollects commented on What Percentage of your Collection is Quartz? ·

In the past 10 years, my ratio has been about 80/20 favoring mechanical, but I collected a lot during the heyday of quartz and tend to not let things go. Yes, it’s diagnosable! 😵‍💫

Great looking watch and I like mesh bracelets particularly in the summer. Good choice. 

Robcollects commented on Writing Off A Watch Too Quickly? ·

Mine’s on a bracelet, so I’m thinking a beads-of-rice bracelet to go with the retro look. 

Robcollects commented on Writing Off A Watch Too Quickly? ·

Still not warming up to the Ranger, but I think that’s my bias. I don’t like the wear of Tudors on the wrist. I know a lot of people who do. New straps/bracelets could help. I think (warning MUCH lower price point and brand presence happening now!!) this may be true as I’ve changed bands on most of my Citizen EcoDrives and it’s changed the look/feel completely. Thanks for the review.

I’m about to change away from my not great OG bracelet on my newest Ball Trainmaster to some other choices. Hope I have your experience.

I hear you! I got this just one for the nostalgic sweep of the second hand.
