I’m interested in this. Is it a standard black light torch that can be bought on Amazon? Any to avoid or are the cheap ones effective too?
I paid £7 for mine from Amazon about 3 years ago. Works fine. :thumbup:
It’s in the basket ready to go 😀

Yepthe cheapies are just fine. I bought mine after attending a watch Faire a couple years ago and all the manufacturers there were either using a little flashlight or keeping some watches under a small blacklight to show the lume.

Not heard anything yet but I was assuming that they need to find out when the replacement dials will be ready before writing to people. I can see how that might be frustrating for those waiting for a response before they decide if they are keeping the watch.

It's magic. A bargain at £4.99. The Abyss lume still isn't bright enough to keep me awake at night though

Amazing how a cheap little light will fully activate the lume on your watch.....

Be careful activating a Seiko....seeing that lume at full power might blind you!!!!

I’ve got a UV flashlight coming. I tacked it on to another order to save on shipping. Spend $7 to save $6 in shipping means it wound up costing me just $1 in the grand scheme of things. I’m surprised at how excited I am about blasting the lume with it.

Just look at the fun I had here JKB. My first SOTC (in the dark). A bag of sweets/ bragging rights for anyone that can guess all 12 lumed beauties (mods, feel free to move this if I've dragged it too far off topic)

Good stuff JKB, AndySH. Thanks JTC.

Some great lumes there Andy.

What surprised me the most was that the C700 Lume really showed (before it quickly fizzled out!) - CW lumes on the C7xx mk 2 range were poor, but the UV torch brought it (briefly) to life. What also stood out was how bright my 2004 Tissot shines.

Look forward to your pics when the torch arrives JKB

Just to add Andy, the lume on the Abyss SH21 looks great

To wet your appetite, here is my C60 Elite GMT 1000 after I shone my UV torch over it this evening.

I love watches that have two different colors of lume. Very cool! It’s a bit disturbing how excited I am now about getting this flashlight...I mean torch.... I’m going to be a kid in a candy store with it!
