Hermétique (3D) Indices

Wanted to try and show the #baltic Hermétique Indices. 🧪

Super-Luminova C3 X1, but it’s an entire block of lume. Never seen this before. Granted it’s not the brightest most intestate lume. Yet coupled with the extremely domed sapphire (think Bambino), the effect is mesmerizing. ✌️

*my photo abilities (or the lack thereof) doesn’t do this justice.

A "block" of lume that's not bright? Interesting.

For me, it’s not about if it’s a block or not. Does it last? Would it hold a charge through the night? For some reason, no one is commenting about this. I wonder why 🤔💭💭

That’s a good take (never really thought about it that way).

I actually think it lasts better than many others I own. Legibly at night after a day of (mostly office ) wear is quite good I’d say. Definitely will pay more attention to “Intensity vs. Longevity” of lume 🙏

Brown is The Color.

The solid blocks of lume look so sculptural and interesting. There are others like Tudor and Farer that do solid lume blocks, but none that make intricate shapes like Baltic is doing with the numerals.

Though the lack of lume stamina is a bit disappointing.

If the indices of the Hérmetique may have been a bit shorter I would have bought it already (in brown or green). BTW, my Farer Resolute has rather nice lumen for its much slighter and black colored numerals. So it depends on the grade of the lumen.

Thanks for the info 🙏

And to be fair, I feel like the lume on this Baltic lasts and is legible, but the overall brightness is a wee bit underwhelming.

Would these lume blocks disintegrate over time? Thats my one main worry with these.

Fair point. Especially if it’s painted? thinly 🤔

I guess I’ll find out 😅
