Hot damn, dont see many in this condition! Love that butter lume 🤤
I feel like these 6306’s are apt to getting that yellow lume .
I feel like Suwa’s lume around this time was more prone to tan/ butter over time. Excellent example
If it turns creamy it's from Daini and not Suwa. Suwa lume is white and turns black with moisture. The two factories used to mix the factory parts depending on the supply chain.
I’ve noticed more tan / yellowed lume from The daini factory. Especially from the 62mas coming out of there . All of them seem to have that color . Suwas have the green type . Makes me think maybe some of the lume compound from the Daini factory was used on some of the early 6306’s
If you ever want to sell it hit me up! Great piece!
Got one too, it’s a great old watch, classic. I put it on the super soft Seiko band that comes with the high end Tunas because I wear it so much.
Mines on either this uncle Seiko tropic or a Isofrane. They pretty much look right at home on anything
