Orient 200m Diver - Relume project

Over the next week or so I will post about my current project to relume this Orient 200m Diver..

After removing the dial from the watch you can clearly see from the photo below that the dial was in need of a relume..

I removed the old lume using a very small jewellers screwdriver and a steady hand..

Then using a watch oiler, I carefully dropped lume onto the markers and left it to dry for a while..

Then I slowly built up the lume drop by drop..

Here is shot to give an idea of the lume colour..

Now while the lume dries and cures, I will have a go at doing the hands..  More to follow..
