So what you might not be able to see from the picture is that not just the numbers, but the Alpina name is actually APPLIED to the dial rather than merely painted. This achieves a couple of wonderful effects. First of all, it really adds to the vintage look of the watch.
Secondly, the raised (applied) greatly enhance the impact of the lume when viewing the watch at night.
A few "dark" shots will be following shortly ; )
