Re: How does the crown gaurd/lock work, and how it the lume?
avatar April 06, 2017 02:49PM
The crown lock rotates up and out of the way to operate the screw-down crown.

Basically, if you understand how this works...


That is the crown guard in a nutshell. Laughing

Lume shots. The watch was not new when I bought it, and it has 10 more years on the tritium since then. It for sure has dimmed, but really just has lived one half-life of radioactive decay. Tritium really fades out past the 2nd half-life, about 24-25 years. There is a tritium lume dot on the bezel, but the other lumed markers are a sandwich-lume setup. Kind of weak stuff too.
