    Strangely enough my few GS watches have the same problem.

    But in those cases it's plausibly a feature rather than a bug. Putting all that hand finishing into the hands and hour markers then slathering lume on it would be like paying a couple grand for a select walnut stock for a Beretta then brush painting over it with battleship grey.

    Their divers have good lume. I've got one GMT that splits the difference - just barely enough to be called lume.

    In your specific examples I could understand calling it fake lume rather than just something for daytime legibility. SeaGull USA had a model that enough people thought it appeared to be lume that they started including "no lume" in the description. Personally if it's a Seiko and not a diver I don't expect lume. In the higher priced models I'd be generally pretty annoyed if they started using it rather than what I've become accustomed to. But at least they're consistent - no "marker only" lume so far as I know - in that regard the one in the OP is possibly unique.
