I first found mention of Lum-tec through Watch Snob. I came into a $1000 from a relative and wanted to buy something meaningful. I love watches but don't have tons of money to spend on them, so I was looking for value. Loved the look of the Lum-tecs, I ordered an M46 yesterday. Reside up in Toronto, Canada and sent a question to Canadian dealer Wristweapon who responded quickly. So I took the plunge. Another thing I liked about Lum-tec was the story behind the company, their goals to do quality pieces at good prices.
And of course all the ringing endorsements from the people in this forum. Sounds like this company appreciates their customers and that was important to me as well.
So now I patiently wait for my purchase.
