Looks pretty impressive to me. I love mine and the lume. Great watch.

Lume comparison~~is my GMT too bright? 😁

Are you using a actual camera or a phone to take them lume pics? I tried for about 10minutes using my Note 10+ and couldn't get a decent Lume shot.

Should post these lume pics over in the gallery I already posted a bunch of pics of this watch in there on various straps, but some lume shots would be nice.

I just used my IPhone. To get the effect like that, I put the Abyss under the sun for 10mins and moved to black out room for photo shot.

Actually really surprised with the lume. By CW standards its good. Thought the watch itself did nothing for me.

Agree with many of the comments here - I looked at an Omega DSOTM and even the AD said it was very difficult to read.

Blimey, just looked at the Omega and it is very difficult to see the face detail (in the image at least). I've found the Abyss very easy to read so far

Mine arrived at the weekend, pretty happy with it although I will change the rubber strap to something more suitable. I'm glad that there's sufficient differences between it and my c60 bronze
