Hemel and Lum-Tec Watches

Post by Thomas Carey » Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:37 pm

Likely many of you don't know on our CGA watches site we also offer Lum-Tec and Hemel. I donate part of the proceeds from each one we sell to charity https://ourrescue.org/

Right now you can get an automatic discount on Lum-Tec brand watches on our site. No discount code is needed. Simply select the Lum-Tec that is of interest to you and put it in your cart. Then presto a discount is applied. :D

Which in the last 30 days has gotten more looks than most any other watch on our site. This leads me to believe these will be selling out totally in the near future.



That would be me!! Have to support the local economy :)
I live in the Cleveland area and Mentor is just east of Cleveland. Plus ordering through your site to support a good cause made it a no-brainer.

WOW!! The watch arrived today! That was super fast. I guess being this close to Lum-Tec has it's advantages. I'll try to get some pics later this week but I must say I'm impressed. The color of the dial is really unique - gray sunburst brass dial. Unlike anything in my collection.

Those are really cool looking watches. Can't wait for the pics Budman! I've never seen your watches live and in person. Do you have any Authorized Dealers in Asia?

I would be on one of these if it had the Lum-Tec branding done in matching orange paint rather than luminous. The glowing branding is a turn off for me.
Thomas, if you have some pull with them, ask for another Limited Edition run without the luminous brand name and let me know when available.



Also, will one of you WIS members educate me on what the hell MDV® luminous Technology custom developed grade X1 is ??

I am sure if I wanted to buy a lot of them like 50 they would consider it. That I can not do.

The C6 looks fantastic. Just above my price range currently allowing myself though.

Very tempting.

I know I've been overdue to post some pictures but the shots I have don't really do it any justice. The last picture that Tom posted is really nice.
I've been wearing this watch a couple times a week and I really love it. Sits well on the wrist and I love the leather strap.
Here's a couple quick shots but like I mentioned in my previous thread, the dial color is really unique. I'll try to capture that at a later date. Just signed up for imgur since Tiny Pic is going away.

I have had some ask just how much money goes to charity from the sale of the Lum-Tec watches for example. For most of the ones I've sold in 2019 $100 per Lum-Tec has gone to the charity. In one case $200 went to the charity as someone ordered one of the most expensive models LT offers.
