Any Lum Tec fans?

Post by mrneddles on 2012-06-08, 08:54

I have the 40mm PVD 300M on preorder. Most of the Lum Tec line-up is too big for me, but I'm doing my part for the return to sensible case dimensions.

Anyone have experience with the brand? I tried the Bull, but at 45mm in a square case, it looked like a postcard on my wrist.

Nice Ladies model!!! lol! I think you will like it 45mm is close to my limit now and I have an 8 1/4 inch wrist. Other than a watch that plays smaller on the wrist such as my Oris TT1.

That is a great looking watch. I don't own one but interestingly Lum-Tec will assemble and lume the Hexa K500 I have coming later this year. This kind of partnership is intriguing and should produce good watches.

Tainted input from me,
Don"t think much of the owner Chris (aka Ray Knight), obvious rip-off's of Panerai and others, will never patronize any of his products...
I'm sure you all familiar with this thread....

Quoted from Aqua Homer at WL:
Not only did Chris Weigand (forum name Ray Knight) make sterile dialed Panerai and Marine Divers, he could be contacted to make personal, exceptional quality counterfeits, branded as Panerai. He has a fairly dubious history as a college grad with pyramid schemes, etc. When Panerai began it's round of lawsuits against Helenarou, Marine Diver, and Marina Militare, I had just retired from MPD, and was working for the State Department. At that time I was on an Alpha, Parnis, etc search and destroy mission. I contacted Panerai's attorney in NY, and turned them on to Chris Weigand, and some of the things WUS was condoning at that time. The Florida States attorney ultimately got involved, due to jurisdictional problems between New York and Florida. In the end, it was settled, Weigand "promised" to cease making replica or homage watches based on Panerai design, and founded Lum-Tec.
If you guys search some of the archives of the bigger well-known replica forums, you can see his custom counterfeit work.

That connection or partnership, was precisely what make me changed my mind about getting an Hexa .
