At least, that’s what I’m assuming is going on, given they’ve named the watch the DayNight Recon.
The Daynight name, of course, comes from the great use of tritium tubes and lume – you can see the three variants in “night” mode up above. Basically, the dial color choice that you make informs the lume and tritium colors you’re getting:
- Black – Tritium Tubes. Hour Markers -Yellow Tubes (12 o’clock 2 Tubes ), Minute Markers –Green Tubes, Hands – Green Tubes
- Blue – Tritium Tubes. Hour Markers – Blue Tubes (12 o’clock 2 Yellow Tubes ), Minute Markers- Yellow Tubes, Hands –Yellow Tubes
- Orange – Tritium Tubes. Hour Markers –Blue tubes ( 12 o’clock 2 Tubes), Minute Markers-Orange Tubes, Hands- Orange Tubes
This is packed into a fairly rugged case (45mm stainless steel case, 16.5 thick), complete with sapphire up front (AR coated, of course) and an exhibition case back. Though that opening in the back you’ll be able to see the ETA 2824-2 working away. Get that 22mm bracelet adjusted to your wrist, and you’re ready to hit the depths (at least, up to 500m). Or, in more practical terms (for most of us, that is) this watch should stand up to most anything you throw at it.
Between the tritium and lumed ceramic bezel inlay, this watch lights up the night. And, with that workhorse movement in there, you know you’ll be on time. Of the three, I think my favorite would end up being the orange one. Regardless of the color mix you choose, you’ll need to bring $899 to the table to get one of your own here.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
