After a long chat with my watchmaker he had concerns about painting the hands with lume or any other paint because the paint may cause the hands to rub together. He said it's not like redoing lume on a watch because the paint is filled in on the backside of the hands. This would be different because the paint is going on the top of the hands and this is where the problem lays. So I ordered a new dial from Invicta which is going to take 4 to 6 weeks to arrive and I will have my watch maker install the new dial. Maybe I can sell the Carbon Fiber dial after the fact...lol It only cost $31.00 which I was quite pleased with. I have to say that it took no time to do and the girl I spoke with was great to deal with. So now rather than having a black carbon fiber dial it will be a textured white dial and I will be able to tell the time again!!
