    Armourlite watches????? anyone checked this one out ?



    Armourlite, the first SHATTER proof HIGH IMPACT tritium dial lighted watch made to withstand the abuse of the profession. Designed for police and firefighters they are extremely durable for all types of conditions. No more broken or badly scratched crystals. No more having to shine a flashlight to see the time. These watches are equipped with tritium gas that lights up all day and night without any external power source. Quality Citizen myota OS60 chronograph movement assures the accuracy of time and the reliability you need while on the job. Large 6mm crown makes it very easy to change the time. The watch measures 45mm wide and when you add the crown an additional 5mm. The watch is made from heavy grade stainless steel with a special Black PVD coating. The markers by the numbers light up in green as well as the hands. 100mm water resistant.

    any idea abt this brand?

    Nothing against the watch, but these marketing tricks always make me laugh.
    First of all, the usual pressure inside a truck tire is around 7..8 bar; according to the principle that in static conditions the reaction equals the force, the watch is resistant to 7..8 bar or 70..80 m. WOW! Add some more, lets say about 50%, for uneven force distribution and rubber stiffness and compression (make it 100% if you want, still not impressive). People figuring that the watch is supporting a quarter of the truck weight are making a huge mistake. The manipulation consists of the fact that they are not even pretending it, they let us "discover" it ourselves, very very smart.
    ...and let me hold that hammer...(basically I'm a mining engineer ).

    I hope that I'll not be suspected as having something personal against this watch....

    They are telling the truth again, as in the ad with the truck. Nothing special, but sounds good.
    Advertising is the heart of modern business.

    Sent off an email earlier today to someone possibly associated with Armourlite watches. If I hear anything interesting, I'll post it here.
