    I would like to see a photo of the "lume" in action!

    Here are a couple of pictures of the lume on the Maratac watch that I quickly took with my iPhone (not the best quality pictures though).

    I very rarely wear a wristwatch (pocket watches are really my "thing"), but I found myself wearing this one tonight when my wife and I went out to dinner. It is a LeCoultre cal. 450 in stainless steel. I believe this one dates from the 1940s.

    What a lovely old watch Jerry. One to treasure I'm sure.

    Thanks for the words of appreciation. This was inherited from my wife's stepdad.

    I agree, that's a nice wrist watch, Jerry. A lot of style, character, and quality. In addition, that's a very interesting cap-jewel setting on the balance. The case has that clean Patek Calatrava look. I don't know who came up with the style first, but it's a winner to my eye. Cheers.
