    Can someone please post a lume shot of a BK/PBDAD modded DSSD. I have a BK DSSD and the lume is more blue / true to the gen per the Rolex website. Just want to make sure before I send my watch off to PBDAD that the lume is still blue and correct to gen.


    I was concerned about the greenish looking tint of pbdad's lume job, when I got mine back, comparing it to pics it's pretty close to me, stock seems too blue.


    pbdad:





    I also see some variance on google images as well, from bluer to greener,

        I've searched and searched on this, and i've seen pics of gens that are greener, and gens that are bluer, IRL this thing glows more blue than the camera captures.

            Yeah i would agree that the camera prob distorts the color a bit. have you looked at the rolex website, clicked on the DSSD link, then clicked on the blue luminescnce link? you can drag your mouse over the watch and it will illuminate with a deep blue color. that is the point i am trying to get to. let me know what you think and how well that matches up to your lume job. regardless of how correct the color is to gen, the lume on your watch is amazing. i am truly jealous

                        Thanks, I didn't charge it, just killed the lights. pbdad does great work. I don't know what it is, but i think some cameras (like my iphone 5 camera), interperets the indigo greener than seen in real life....

                          What all did you have PBDAD do? That is a BK DSSD correct? When did you have all of this done. I have a stock BK DSSD trying to decide what mods to have done. Feel free to PM me if you would like instead of posting. Sorry for all the questions. Just trying not to make a mistake with what i do with the watch.

                            Mines an "ultimate corrected 10 swiss movement" etc...

                            I had a very loose bezel and had him tighten it the best he could (pretty good now), and do his "non bk works package" I think bk has some of this already done.

                                yup it looks great. If I did it again, I'd probably do the pearl, and the lume and skip the rest, the pearl to me is the biggest tell.
