Bern based Angular Momentum recently unveiled the newest member of their Émail Lumineuse sport watch collection. The Magnus Junior is the answer to their 70mm Freehand Magnus diver. The scaled-down update comes in a 48mm diameter case constructed from aluminum bronze. The dial, bezel and hands feature their proprietary lume that is inspired by glowing mushrooms. We’re not talking about magic mushrooms that glow after you eat them, the shrooms that influenced this luminescent technology are a bioluminescent species known as Mycenas.
Independent artisan watchmaker Martin Pauli is the inventor behind Émail Lumineuse. It is said to be more intense than Super-LumiNova and packs up to 35 hours of glow in just 10 minutes of charge. This special enamel alloy is non-radioactive and Angular Momentum boasts that their lume tech will last for centuries.
