If you are a fan of watches that light up the night, you have plenty of options. There are the heavily-lumed watches to go for (such as the Seiko Monster), or you can go in a different direction, with watches that rely on tritium tubes for their illumination. One of the brands we have featured in the past with these tubes is British company Nite Watches. Until now, all of their watches have featured quartz movements. That changes with the launch of the Nite Icon Automatic.
Tritium-equipped watches are nothing new to these pages. We have taken a look at a few different brands and varieties over the past few years, and I always have come away enamored with the light output (and colors of said light) of the watches. Today, we have got something a bit different with regards to the tubes used. For the first time here, we will be featuring a watch that has flat tritium tubes – the Nite Icon T100.
It’s been awhile since we’ve featured Nite on these pages (here), but we’re back with one of their latest, in a color scheme that’s ready for the changing colors of fall.
The last time we had Nite on these pages (here), I was bringing your attention to one of their discontinued models, the Icon IC4. That one featured unconventional styling (for a tritium model), and today’s review sample manages to break from the norm a bit as well.
