Relume – Marina Militare Submersible

The Marina Militare Submersible has really lousy lume. Only the hands were having lume (Hr/Min/Sec) + the Bezel dot at 12pm. Otherwise the dial indice has very very little/or no lume. I have always wanted to relume it but was too lazy to put my hands onto it.

Since after completion of the custom strap on the Marina Militare Submersible yesterday, while the “heat” is ON. I finally decided to do a relume.

Below some photos for all to enjoy.

Building up the lume layer by layer (3 layer to be exact).

Finally removed the bezel paint and relume those bezel markers with left-over lume paint.
Nice !

  1. Wow, that’s really impressive!
    How did you remove the old Lume, or you’ve just applied it on top of the existing?
    I’d like to do tge same with mine!

    Thanks

  2. I did not remove the old lume but use it as a base to build up the new lume (lume brightness perform better with a white colour base). I just apply the new lume over it !

    Hope to see your result too !
