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.

Thanks for the info!  By the way those are the most awesome incredible pictures I've ever seen of watches.  From the copyrights I assume you shot those. 
Beautiful!!!
