This watch isn't going to shoot anyone, but it's definitely one of the more badass looking watches we carry. Not into badassery? How about chemistry? Want to be just a tiny bit radioactive? (Duh, who doesn't?) The Smith & Wesson Protector Watch features tritium illumination. Tritium, also known as T, 3H or Hydrogen-3, is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. Since naturally occurring tritium is extremely rare on our planet, it's pretty special to have a little bit of it trapped inside your watch.
Where else have you seen tritium illumination, you might ask? Other watches (not nearly as cool as this one), glowing novelty keychains, self-illuminated exit signs, glow-in-the-dark equipment for military use, analog dials in aircraft, compasses, and sights for some weapons. Even some old rotary telephones used tritium illumination, but since they're all really old now they don't produce much light.
The S&W Protector Watch is classic geek black with a metal (or rubber!) band, tritium illuminated display, and rotating bezel. Swiss movement means it'll always be on time (even if you're not) and the battery will last up to 3 years. But really, it's all about the tritium, baby.
