I wish I could get some high end stuff. My “fancy” watches are bulova and seiko
I’m in the same boat. I only have one watch at a time and I wear them until they either quit or get so beat up they look awful. My current is a Seiko but I really want a tritium watch. The most I can see paying is about $400.00 which limits me to the lower end of the tritium watches like Armourlite or Traser.

My Luminox barely glows anymore.

I have a Grand Seiko and love it. It is in my regular rotation. One of my favorite watches. Come check out the groups if you can...

No, can you post a few pics. I always like seeing something new. .
Does anyone own a Vaer? They have a couple retro pieces that have caught my eye.

Another thing I noticed about my Seiko, which is a Kinetic type watch, is to never wear a Kinetic type watch while shooting a pistol. On the first and only time I ever did that the watch went into a "hyper" mode and the minute hand was moving even faster than a second hand normally moves. I thought I ruined the watch, but after a couple days it settled back down, so I reset it and it started working normally again.

I've got my eye on this Armourlite/Isobrite ISO313, but would be concerned with how old the tritium tubes in it are since it is a clearance item.

Watch will be under MFG warranty so you don't lose. If weak send to mfg for replacement...

Deep Blue and Nite are also very nice looking tritium watches. I like how some models mix 3 or 4 tritium colors on the same watch and the lume looks sharp. Again, these brands are also out of my price range. Another example of my champagne taste and beer income.

All FB has put us in fb jail and under review as we are a 2nd ammendment group and I made the mistake of saying my son is selling Rosaries for $110.00 usd... thus they associated the money to a gun price and put us in FB jail... lesson learned. Of course the bots are quick to catch and humans slow to review... no rule was broken the bot can't reason... so now we wait....

I’d be curious to know what it costs to replace tritium tubes in a watch. I would think the cost be such that it’s only worth it if you have high end watch.
Under warranty free. Usually it is not more than the watch is worth with any brand who offers service... normally about 10 to 25% value of watch...
