Dial relume, CONUS preferred

Post by genoint »

Hi all. Does anyone know of any modders who can relume a dial, hands and bezel for a PAM submersible? I’d like to keep this in CONUS if possible. I’d consider sending outside of US, but there is always a customs concern.

Anyhow, here is the watch. It has this not so great grey-ish lume. This 087 is a version from around 2008. I’d like to have it look like the gen which has a vintage tan/yellowish tritium lume look to it.

Here is the look I am trying to achieve:

Thanks in advance for any help.

Have you considered dying or staining the lume?

I’ve heard Copic markers can potentially do the job. I’d be afraid of trying tea or coffee and ruining the paint on the dial.
