What have you tried? I've been thinking about this and was wondering about using a UV nail lamp to age date wheels, dials or lume. I know they use UV to professionally age guitars.

Datewheels are an unbelievable bitch to fit.  Never have I had this much trouble.  Well they work outside the watch.

Hmm, looks good but the datewheel won't turn over correctly.  The photo paper we printed it on is too thick.  Drags and stops it from turning over correctly.  Darn shame.  Got to print the DW on different paper.

Leave the dw alone, Rich ... Just wear that watch once per month ... you'll be fine.

Its a beauty NCRich.  nice work.  Bummer about the date wheel   I recall BartCordell was having issues with paper thickness on the DW overlays he made for him and I.

 

Looks great and will be a total keeper once you got it dialed!
