I would like to ask how safe is tridium ? If it's safe howcome watch maker in Switzerland and Germany not using it ?
Tritium is much lighter than air, modern day watch manufacturers using tritium tubes use such an insanely small amount, that should the capsule leak, it will dissipate so fast it's a non issue.
It mainly comes down to what a manufacturer wants, and there is prolly real world extra taxes, fees, disposal costs which would in turn drive up price points.
Thanks solidyetti for your answer, much appreciated !
Oh yeah baby!
Ball is a Swiss manufacturer and so is Marathon. Both use tritium. Don’t eat it lol it was probably phased out mostly due to burn out.
Tritium is safe. I have an M&P pistol with fairly bright tritium sights and they have held up extremely well. I also love watches that use tritium tubes. Very cool looking to my eye.
Def safe. pretty cool too!
I have been collecting watch for more then 10 years.
