ArmourLite Introduces New Lightweight Polycarbonate Tritium Illuminated Automatic Watches

Twelve all-new Caliber Series watches feature automatic movements and Swiss tritium illumination

ArmourLite Watch Company is excited to introduce twelve all-new ArmourLite Caliber Series lightweight polycarbonate watch models with Swiss tritium illumination and automatic movements.

The twelve all-new models represent the first ArmourLite automatic watches to feature ultra lightweight polycarbonate case construction with anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Intricate NH38 mechanical movements with 24 jewels power the watches. Each anti-magnetic movement offers manual winding and automatic winding with ball bearing. The watches also have a see-thru operational window on the dial to see the movement in action. A unidirectional rotating bezel with a tritium marker is great for keeping elapsed time. For the avid diver, the watches offer 200m of water resistance.

Another unique feature of the all-new watch models is the ability to hack the second hand. Hacking is a military term, which refers to the ability to stop the second hand in order to synchronize the time to another watch. When the crown on the new models is pulled out to set the time, the second hand stops. To synchronize with another watch, the user simply pushes the crown back in.

Hacking is an important feature for our military and law enforcement customers. We wanted to make sure the all-new Caliber Series automatic watches offered them this unique feature, explains Mr. Ashley Diener, CEO of ArmourLite Watch Company.

The watches are available with a nylon band, a nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) band, or a stainless steel band coated with black PVD. NBR is a form of synthetic rubber that is more resistant than natural rubber to oil, fuel, acids and other chemicals. This type of rubber is commonly used in the automotive & aeronautical industries to make fuel and oil handling hoses, seals, and grommets.

The hands, number markers, and bezel on each ArmourLite Caliber Series watch features small, self-luminous tritium-filled vials. This safe and reliable permanent illumination technology allows the user to easily tell the time at a glance, even in the darkest lighting conditions. Tritium illumination is commonly used for the instrument dials in aircraft, compasses and night sights for weapons since it does not require a battery or external power supply and it remains constantly illuminated for 20+ years.

The twelve all-new watch models are available now through ArmourLite authorized dealers in the United States, Canada, and other countries (http://www.armourlite.com/stores.html) or through the official ArmourLite website (http://www.armourlite.com).
