Watch hand relume.

On the bench today was a set of hands to relume from Crowland, near Spalding, on a Crescent watch.

Firstly the old lume needed to be removed, and the hands cleaned. This old luminous compound is tritium, which was predominantly used up until the 90s, and is still used in some today.


Next was to make a little bridge. This keeps the hands secure, and allows the new compound to flow easily. It's very viscous and spreads across the gap, filling the void.


As you can see, the hands look smashing, and will shine on for a few more years.
