So after some long hard thinking I decided, "lets get some lume work started". There are only about 3-4 great Relumer's in the US, and the backlog can be from 2 months to up to 1 year. I was able to convince one of the top guys to join the ToxicTEAM (hell I don't think he knew what he was getting into). Which means faster turn around's than normal but still with great prices.

We also have a new lume from RCTriTec in Switzerland (who makes Super-LumiNova) called Grade X1 with much better performance than others lumes including their standard lume. It does cost $15 more than a standard lume but it is worth it. We can use the new lume in C3 Light green, C1+10 White, Blue with blue green glow, and Light Orange with yellow glow to be used with vintage mixes.

So there are quite a few options available.

Here are the prices:
Relume of Dial: Typical dial indices $114
Relume of Hands:Typical charges $38 ($44 for GMT set)
Chronograph Relume: Additional charge +$35 to typical charge
Pressure Test to 165': $25 recommended on all diver watches
Grade X1 Super Lume: $15 extra
Bezel pip lume: $25.00 which requires clean out old lume, replace with new lume, put a layer of Swiss UV 500 lacquer, bake in UV oven to give a (glossy or satin) hardened waterproof finish.

Right now the longest it should take is 3 weeks time. I am working with the relumer to get the time down.

Shipping/Handling is $15.00 Priority Mail

Insurance is $2.50 first $100 then $1 for each additional $100

Contact me on pricing for your watch.
