Aplying luminous Compound onto a dial and hands.

IMG_5305I serviced this Longines back in 2014 and I replaced the luminous compound on the hands and was not skilled enough to replace the compound on the dial. I since gained much more experience applying compound and mixing different tones. The bright compound on the hands and the missing compound on the dial does not look that great, so I decided it was time to do something about it.

I remove the compound from the hands.

I secure the dial to some cardboard.

I mix up some compound.

Here you can see the numbers after filling in the compound.

The dial looks much better with the numbers filled in with compound.

I’m very happy with the tone, as the aged look matches the patina of the dial.

Much better!

The watch still runs like a newly serviced watch and feels good on the wrist!
