We are different from the majority of watch companies.
Since 2010 we have adopted a direct to consumer online approach, enabling us to offer great value as well as giving us the opportunity to engage directly with our customers.
By having a loyal and engaged customer base we are also able to use the website as an active platform where Research & Development projects are posted for customer feedback. Ultimately this results in the creation of timepieces that have been co-created with our most important stakeholders – our customers.
Our goal has always been to produce watches that our customers can depend on and truly value which is why all of our watches are precision engineered and assembled to perfection by using the very latest technologies and production processes in the industry.
One of our key differentials is our use of GTLS (Gaseous Tritium Light Source) illumination – the completely self-powered 24 hour illumination technology which is the most reliable form of illumination utilised in watches.
More information about the GTLS in our watches can be found here.
The Nite Watches community is all about engaging our family of customers which is fronted by a number of genuine Nite Watch owners who act as brand ambassadors, showcasing Nite Watches across the world.
