ULTRA TOUGH SHATTERPROOF CRYSTAL + ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT CASE
ULTRA TOUGH SHATTERPROOF CRYSTAL
+ ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT CASE
Used by special forces operators in the most demanding environments, these watches were designed and built to survive unscathed! By combining our shatterproof Armourglass crystal with a carbon fiber reinforced case we have achieved a watch that is both ultra tough and ultra lightweight.
To easily tell the time in any lighting environment, the watch features 14 green and orange self-powered tritium markers by trigalight®. These are the same constantly glowing tritium markers that are used in weapon sights.
For the ultimate protection of the dial, the shatterproof Armourglass crystal can withstand up to 6,000 Vickers, whereas most watch crystals can only withstand about 700. Using the same technology as bulletproof glass, we have achieved a crystal that won’t shatter even when one layer is compromised. This crystal was previously only available in our ArmourLite watches with a stainless steel case.
To ensure uninterrupted service, the watch is powered by a reliable and accurate Swiss Made Ronda 515 quartz movement. The movement also features a legible date display at the 3:00 position on the dial.
For the underwater explorers, this dive-friendly watch offers a water resistance of 100 meters (10 atm). In addition, a 60-clicks unidirectional ratcheting diver bezel helps keep track of elapsed bottom time when diving.

Swiss Tritium Illumination
ArmourLite watches have tiny glass tubes that are filled with tritium gas and then hermetically sealed. The electrons of the gas continuously react with phosphorescent paint resulting in a radio luminescent light source that glows constantly for several decades. No external power source or charging-by-light is necessary to maintain the glow. The glow is completely self-powered.
The watch is protected by shatterproof Armourglass crystal that can withstand up to 6,000 Vickers, whereas most watch crystals can only withstand about 700. Using the same technology as bulletproof glass, we have achieved a crystal that won’t shatter even when one layer is compromised.
Ultra Lightweight Case
The watch features an ultra lightweight and extremely durable carbon fiber reinforced case with a diameter of 43.5mm. The double-gasket push-in crown on the right side of the case is protected by two side shields. For keeping track of elapsed dive time, the case has a unidirectional ratcheting diver bezel.
Swiss-Made Ronda Movement
The watch is powered by a reliable and accurate Swiss-Made Ronda 515 quartz movement with a battery life of 45-months. Ronda is one of the most respected makers of quartz movements and strictly adheres to an ISO 9001 quality control system to ensure that every movement meets the most rigorous standards.
