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.
The watch is powered by a reliable and accurate Swiss-Made Ronda 517 quartz movement with a day and date display. 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.
The watch features an ultra tough, corrosion resistant, and hypoallergenic 316L stainless steel case with a diameter of 45mm. The double-gasket screw-in crown on the right side of the case is protected by two side shields.
