How to adjust steel linked watch band (Wenger Swiss Military waterproof)

Page 5 of 6  


Those are actually glass vials, and it isnt really that practical to do the 'dots' that way.

Oh, really? <G>
You'd be well advised to do a "tiny" bit of research on the commercial use of Tritium: quite a number of companies use "dots" on their products, especially in the armaments field.
Beretta, for example. <VBG>

Correct. Those little glass tubes are inset into the front and rear sights so just the ends show.
They do have to be replaced periodically though as they go dim.

Irrelevant to dots in watches, stupid.

<sigh> Now don't you think that arguing with a regular alt.horology user about these things is just plain silly ?
"Besides radium, there are several other methods of making "glow in the dark" watch dials. There are various non-radioactive phosphor compounds that will glow in the dark after being exposed to light. Some modern compounds can glow for 10 to 15 hours after a relatively short exposures to bright light. Tritium, like radium, is radioactive, but it is much safer. Tritium, a form of hydrogen, has a reasonably short 12 year half life so it doesn't have the long term dangers that radium has, and it decays into harmless helium. The beta particles that tritium gives off can not even penetrate the outer layer of dead skin on your body, let alone the watch crystal and watch case."

And yes, the 'T' means Tritium on watch dials.

Heavy breathing has been banned in here.

Might be if I had actually bothered to look that individual up.
Then again, I often do point out the stupiditys in the posts of even the stupidest, mainly so other readers wont buy the bullshit.

How about a cite on the chemistry of that.

Useless on what chemical is used on the watch hands and dots.
And mechanical watches are complete dinosaurs anyway.
