Luminescent Watches Five Watches For A Good Time
WorldTempus selects timepieces that continue to shine even when the sun goes down…
In the summer, the days are longer, which gives us more time to spend outdoors with family and loved ones. While we may not be able to socialise and party like we used to, here are some watches that continue to give us a little taste of what an active nightlife used to feel like. With great designs amplified by Super-LumiNova, these timepieces fluoresce at night or under ultraviolet light. Strap one of these on your wrist, put on your favourite DJ mix and let the good times roll!
Trilobe Les Matinaux Secret
This Parisian brand specialises in watches with unusual displays, but one of their watches also comes with a hidden message… Les Matinaux Secret comes decorated with a star map, customised to the sky at a moment of your choice. At night, the stars come alive with luminosity, displaying a code that only you can read.

Montblanc 1858 Geosphere
The beauty of this watch, with its vintage aesthetic, is the first thing that you see. Large hands, Arabic numerals and two hemispheres showing the Earth from North and South poles. When the sun goes down, however, the watch comes alive with Super-LumiNova. If you want to literally light up the world, this watch is for you.

Corum Bubble X-Ray
Those who enjoy something a bit edgier, who wear their Alexander McQueen skull-decorated couture with insouciance, will also be drawn to the Corum Bubble X-Ray, a 1990s must-have watch updated for the new millennium, and now adorned with a 3D pointillistic representation of a skull in Super-LumiNova. You’ll have no end of bright ideas with this glowing cranium!

MAD Edition 1
Let’s talk about a viral sensation that brought people together instead of shutting down entire cities. The MAD Edition 1 is the latest blockbuster project from the same people who brought you MB&F and the MAD Gallery. With its “driver’s watch” time indication and massive rotor, all highlighted in Super-LumiNova, this incredibly affordable timepiece lit up social media with fans who found a brand new coup de coeur. Although purchase of this watch is invite-only for now, due to popular demand, there are plans for a more general release in the future.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur “Glow Me Up”
Here is a watch that was built for summer nights in Ibiza, Miami, Mykonos, and the home of the original Full Moon Party — Thailand’s Koh Pha Ngan. By day, this may look like an ordinary, though beautiful, diamond-set timepiece. Under the ultraviolet strobe lights of a beach club, layers of coloured Super-LumiNova turn the Excalibur “Glow Me Up” into the dream watch of a billionaire sybarite.
