    Armourlite A45 or which TRITIUM CAPSULE watch for looks, finish, reasonable price...

    Looking for a watch that is comfortable, good looking, masculine, viewable at night, and might even get a comment once a year! I've seen luminox for years and they are comfortable and bright but somewhat common and seem high priced for what you get. I've seen MTM on the internet (youtube, etc...) and they are handsome (carbon fiber dial, sapphire crystal) on film but a bit pricy and have limited distribution for some reason. Thanks!

    Would consider quartz or automatic. Good finish/looks/night vision (mine is not good) is more important to me than a real "tactical" watch.

    If the Ball watch were not absurdly expesnsive it just might be perfect. Tx. Where to buy and what model?

    What do you consider your maximum "not absurdly expesnsive" price?

    See, that's exactly what I meant. I do not think they are absurdly expensive. Give us a limit.

    Trite, I guess, but it depends on the watch. I've spent $40 (Swatch throw in) - $35,000 (Lange platinum Datograph) on a watch.

    Ball is, I believe, a somewhat upscale brand. For what would be a favorite watch I'd spend up to $3k on a tritium capsule (but hope to pay less).

    (Yes, price and resale have some meaning.)

    Staying under 3K from Ball I would recommend:
    Ball EMII DLC - $1899
    欢迎来到波尔表世界

    Ball EMII Diver Worldtimer - $2899
    欢迎来到波尔表世界

    Ball EMII Diver - $2199
    欢迎来到波尔表世界

    Ball Fireman Nighttrain - $2099
    欢迎来到波尔表世界

    These would be my suggestions for something masculine, basic, very night view-able.
