Nite Watches goes nuclear with radioactive tritium lighting up its dials

Nite Watches has added four ‘super bright’ models to its T100 automatic series.

Featuring a super bright T100 tritium illumination, they are some of the only watches in the world to combine automatic movements with such high level illumination.

This is the first time a blue T100 tritium illumination has been used in the Nite Collection.

The primary function of tritium is to boost the yield of both fission and thermonuclear weapons, but is entirely safe in small quantities, and will continue glowing for years on a watch face.

Nite Watches was founded by Roger Green in 2003 when he invested his life savings into the design and creation of his own collection of watches.

The feature of illumination has always being key to the Nite Watches brand. In 2007, just three years after the launch of its first series of watch, the Nite SX10 became the world’s thinnest watch to feature GTLS illumination.

The current T100 watches house Swiss made Sellita SW200-1 automatic movements in a 44mm stainless steel case with a screw down crown, sapphire crystal face and case back viewing window.

    And the Japanese will soon release hundreds of thousands of tons of tritium toxic water into the ocean.
    They are running out of room to store it, besides not being able to stop the constant contamination, so I guess we can ask if the smallest fish will ‘glow’ first, or will it be the ocean water itself?
