How long does your lume last?

Zelos mako GMT remains visible till early morning

Surprisingly my Laco B-uhr easily outlasts my Omega's and Willards!

Need to do a lume rest of my collection and get back to you! No pics to attest, but I think both my San Martins and my Zelos last for a good while!

Most of my watches with lume are visible in the morning. My Fossil Defender is one with weak lume. My Timex Expedition North is visible in the morning, but it is much dimmer than most of the others.

My Hemel Air Wing lume lasts all night long.

Same my Zelos Mako, lume all night long.

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..

Yep fantastic Lume on Zelos!

I have never gotten lume to last longer than one hour.

Seiko, Omega, Pitzmann, Christopher Ward, Farer, San Martin.

DEAD after one hour.

Even the Seiko?

Unfortunately, yes.

The lume on the SBER005 is only on the hands and markers and sparsely applied.
