It's obviously not right, and only you can decide if sending it back is the correct call.

I don't mean send it back for a refund I mean to get it relumed or I guess they could put in a new dial. I see your point it is picky but it's a very expensive watch and it should be perfect, IMO.

I just didn't want to send it back if it is supposed to have this variation in lume.

Didn't I read this exact issue somewhere else? Or is the same watch same owner?

I know I don't "get" Bremont, but can you explain why poorly applied lume would possibly be intentional, when the watch in the OP has normal lume?

Well, I love it. Sorry I couldn't pick up Matt's on the rebound.

I would write Mike Pearson and send him a pic. I'm confident it's not supposed to look like that and he'll be all over getting it right for you. Michael@bremont.com

A Week With the Bremont Terra Nova

By the way mjm, it's protocol around here to start a thread introducing yourself and posting some watch pics. This is a great forum but not got the thin skinned; you may catch some hell if you don't intro yourself soon.

Yeah, I gotcha. Send it for new dial or re-lume.

Thanks for the review. The Terra Nova is awesome...but then I am a big fan of the S500.

Responding to your point re lumed seconds hands on a dive watch; it is listed as part of the ISO but serves no real world purpose on a dive watch IMO. You would not enter a low-light environment without a torch (and a back up light). I have never had a single situation where I had insufficient light to read the watch dial and didn't have a torch in the other hand. It just wouldn't happen.

On the other hand a poorly or only partially indexed bezel is a much bigger annoyance. So many dive watches are given a pass on that far more important key dive watch function.
