These mid-1960s Subs also featured a unique mixture of tritium and other photoluminescent materials that often makes the patina on the lume to be a warm tan, nicely complimenting the gilt writing. In fact, even 45 years later the lume on these mid-1960s gilt Subs will still light up for a little while after being exposed to light. Sometimes people mistakenly worry that these Subs have been relumed because of this. Subs that are a few years newer feature a different original tritium lume mixture that aged differently and that does not light up today. - Gilt black dial with 'bart simpson' coronets. Towards the end of gilt dial era, Rolex coronets appeared to be much shorter which resembles bart Simpson's hair.
