Looking for recommendations to Re-Lume

I have a 66" 1505 that I wear most days to work, where it gets beat up, runs perfect but the lume is gone and so are my eyes. I'm looking for recommendations of someone who can re-lume the hands and dial. Any help appreciated.

I used James to redo a terrible lume job on a 1680 red dial and hands very impressive and well worth the hassle of sending from the US. He is excellent!

Hi Chris, out of interest post some photos, once you've had the work carried out it will be a good comparison.

Thanks for the Reference, I sent it out on a Saturday and got it back Thursday. Jack did both the hands and dial, and I love it I can actually see my watch in the dark again. AAA+++ Job and very reasonable. I will try to get shots and post them soon. Thanks everyone Chris

Ok, here it is ! Both pictures are afterwards, there wasn't any sense in taking one before hand, all that was visible was parts of the hands and faint spots from markers 6,7,2
