LUME colors on Zodiac Super Sea Wolf
« on: July 05, 2010, 07:55:17 pm »
Does anyone know what the superluminova color was used (if it was used) on the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 1000M Divers Watch? I saw on a site that it was C3 as light-yellow yet on  another site it said light-green.   I just picked up item 290451023166 on ebay and it looks like it could use some touching up.

The modern SSW is going to be hard to match for a couple of reasons:

1. It was originally lumed with tritium, which is NLA. It will take a lume maestro like Jack or Kent Parks to match the lume on a partial relume and I'd wager they would recommend getting the whole thing re-done if you really want the lume to match.

2. I have two SSWs, both of which seem to have different-colored bezel lume. The earlier one is more yellowish (as the one you bought looks to be)


whilst the later one seems to be more greenish:


As you can see, my bezel also needs touching up but I've left it for now for the above reasons.
