I ordered a black dialled version a few months ago and look forward to October.
Lume looks great. Their tungsten cased version is not too shabby either but this is their nicest dial to date IMO.

Cheers

And with the rather subtle date very practical as well. Safe to assume the lug width is 24mm and hope the case is thick strap friendly; the one issue I've had with my only bronze watch (Helson) is the wrong strap can peel back the leather if you aren't careful.

Can we talk price since it's not a Panerai? I'd be very interested if it's reasonable.

hi keith,

what do u mean by peel back the leather? could u elaborate and perhaps post some photos too?

does a wrong strap do any harm to the helson watch itself?

cheers!

I attached a rather thick ammo strap that was fine on a Panerai case, but the case on the Helson doesn't have as much clearance and there is a ridge where the back and case meet. A very thick strap can catch on this ridge and the results can be ugly. No photos and it's not a huge deal but something to be a bit careful of.

How could a strap possibly harm a case?
