Tritium Gas Lighting Durable Watch – Lumixon
This is the watch that has been used by American Special forces, it looks like an ordinary one but no, it is kind of special in the making. It’s specifically ordered with some criteria. One of the most important aspect in any army mission is to implement timing preciseness. Because timeliness is an important key in the battle strategy, attacking, defense and many others.
These widely used navy watches use Micro Gas Lights, a technology which enable the watch to switch on automatically in dark conditions and staying alive for quite long. This technology enable the United States Special Forces soldiers to see the time clearly at night.
Micro Gas is also called tritium, where the tritium gas act as the light source undergo beta decay-radioactive process, releasing electrons that cause these Tritium Gas glare. How does it glare? During manufacture, a length of borosilicate glass tube having inner surface coated with a phosphor-containing compounds filled with radioactive tritium. Tube is then fused with CO2 laser at the desired length. Borosilicate added for advance in strength and resistance against damage. In the tubes, tritium provides the flow of electrons from beta decay, resulting the glare of the Tritium Gas that can stay alive up to 25 years.
