    The above Deep blue doesn't have tritium ;D

    Got a titanium Tawatec a while ago and I'm very happy with it:smitten:

    I've got the deep blue T-25, and if it ain't tritium then it's some other radio-isotope (or maybe he's changed the link since you posted). Either way it definitely glows in the dark.

    I've had one for a few months now and I've been very happy with it.

    The Deep blue that was pictured by tiberius (now removed) was one of their non tritium lights. The one amacman linked to is a tritium watch ;)

    I've been happy with my Luminox, but that DB looks sweet.

    I'll have to check them out.

    That is a great looking watch, the crown being on the left side would be awesome for very active days.

    Thank you. I've got a callous from some of my other divers with the crown on the right side and really liked the look of the Tawatec :D Great watch imho

    I only have one watch with tritium so I can't speak for other companies but my Luminox has been great so far. The novelty of tritium in a watch hasn't worn off... I feel like a child being constantly amused by things that glow :p

    Sorry hit enter too soon...Luminox 3051 (blackout) is a really great watch for the money and another personal favorite.

    +1 for Luminox. I have a 3051 Blackout that has been scratched, doped, covered in mud several times and then put through the dish washer and it still works.

    Now watching this thread. I've got a Deep Blue without trit but I wish I had just saved a little longer and gotten one. (Maybe by the end of the summer if I don't spend it all at Blade next week).
