“No. There is absolutely no risk whatsoever from wearing a watch with GTLS. The low energy electrons of tritium inside a GTLS cannot escape, and only the rupture of the light source would free the tritium gas which is so minimal that it would quickly disburse.
On average, we are all exposed to natural radiation sources in everyday life from both space and our surroundings to about 2.4Sv a year, depending on geographic location. While wearing a Nite watch, you are exposed to zero additional radiation. In the unlikely event of the watch being destroyed and all of the vials simultaneously breaking, the exposure would be 30,000 times lower than the daily average.”

All Nite watches feature a specialised illumination technology known as Gaseous Tritium Light Source (GTLS). This completely self-powered illumination is achieved when electrons are emitted from the tritium gas, to excite the phosphorous lining of the GTLS producing a continuous cold light source that will typically last between 10 and 20 years without any external power source. This highly specialised technology is also used in military hardware and pioneering safety equipment where a guaranteed light source is needed for safe operations in hazardous environments and conditions.
A pressure test during the service or repair will determine whether your watch is still water resistant to the manufacturer’s specification. This test is always required when a repair or service has taken place and the case has been opened. It is recommended that servicing, replacing the gaskets and seals and pressure testing should be carried out every two years on watches that are regularly used in water to ensure continued water resistance.
Enjoy free shipping on all orders. Watches are sent by DHL and all other items by AU Postal Service.

Steamy environments; wearing a watch in a hot, steamy environment can potentially cause the case to expand and contract resulting in condensation inside the watch that may damage vital internal parts.
Magnetic fields; placing your watch near speakers, refrigerators or other items with strong magnetic fields can potentially cause the movement to fail or function incorrectly.
Leaving the crown out or unscrewed when worn in water
Extreme temperatures above 140f or 60c and below -40f or -40c. Extreme changes in temperature can cause the case to expand and contract resulting in condensation to form inside the watch.
