Watch question.

What is the price range for a watch with a tritium dial, and how bright are the hands and numbers in the dark

cheapest i would go is with a deep blue tritium watch , watches go from 99 bucks to infinity . most use t25 but t100 tritium is twice as nice

can join over at watchuseek , in for sale section and get good deals .

i own a bunch , favorites are the tsar ,jsar . but they are 400 to 500 bucks .

i think you can go on the bay and get a cheap Uzi tritium for bout 100 bucks

Marathon Navigator polymer @ $182.75.

It's bright enough to read the time.

Maybe he just prefers conversing with people who might actually have those types of watches. It's kind of, you know, the whole point of internet forums.

My bad, gun forums are loaded with watch experts.
Kind of reminds me of the thread here a few years back titled "Knocked up my girlfriend, what should I do?"

Hands and pips are VERY easy to read in the dark. The only watch brand I know of that has the numbers in tritium is Ball. Then you're looking at $1-$3k.

Trit paint is not the same as tritium gas vials.

http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1445125 Near as I can tell there are a few people here who do seem to know a thing or three about watches. Also there seems to be a few people who know a bit more than the rest of us about medical issues, since they are physicians. And when it comes questions regarding the law, there seem to be a few actual attorneys here. Not to forget some engineers, tradesmen and craftsmen, pilots, and whole lot of life experience. Near as I can tell there is actually a wealth of knowledge here. Justs not in every post or thread.

Yes I did and it is an awesome watch, however I would like to get an analog watch that you can see when it's dark

Okie, I have an old Marathon *not sure the model number, but it is a basic field watch. Looks like a regular old wind up Timex with an olive drab web band and basic analog face, that has tritium vials. It is 12 years old and still glowing. Not as bright as it used to but I am a tritium lover for sure. I think it cost me about $50 and is/was a great watch.

Currently wearing a Luminox with tritium.

Why do you need to read a watch in the dark? You already know what time it is.

nightTIME.

when it is not dark it is dayTIME.

See. I just saved you lots of money.

I like the styling of this watch.

Okie Memorial Area

Seems a little pricey for not having a name, but a reasonable price for the features. About $1200.

There are other nicely styled (and much cheaper) Luminox watches so search the Luminox page.
