    Tritium Auto - SMW???

    Iíve really got the bug a for a tritium automatic and I canít afford a ball without getting a divorce. Iíd go with Marathon but Iím really looking for something other than the usual black face, black bezel. Iíd really prefer a blue face, I havenít been able to find one. I did come across the SMW autos (http://www.smw-watch.com/) and I really like the orange, but Iíve yet to see much in the way of reviews. Iím not sure itís worth paying Marathon prices for something without Marathon credibility.

    Thoughts or suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Check out RLT watches from the UK, they make many military style watches with tritium lume (mostly vintage styles). Below is their website -

    Precista makes some nice watches in the same style. I'd recommend Precista and RLT, have heard many positive things about them from owners.

    A few of this and some of the other ...

    Check out the Christopher Ward C600 diver. There are 3 dial colors (black, blue and yellow) and if you poke around the UK site, you can find a nearly new one for a good price.

    Good choice - which color did you pick? I have the black faced one, which is pretty cool and unique looking (IMO)

    Buy the new one instead of the nearly new. You get a 20% discount (enter mens20 in the code box) on a new one plus you save a bunch by not paying the VAT tax.

    It's not a big difference in price so take the new.

    I have a C600 on order. Great looking watch and movement for the price and the 60 day return/60 month warranty is the best in the biz.

    A fine group of animals in their forum also. Just don't feed them.

    Another tip for anyone in the USA is to check the prices on their UK site before buying anything on their USA site. On some watches it cheaper to buy on the UK site for some reason. I saved a decent amount on a C60 by comparing prices.

    *** Just realized the reason it's probably cheaper on the UK site is you get to play the exchange rate?

    I hope you like that C600. It seems to have been well received in the CW forum.
    I assume you got the blue one. No need to answer - just need pictures!

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.

    I ordered a nearly new from the UK site for $380. I was trying that men20 code like crazy but I guess it only works on new one.

    If the case was steel or Ti I would have bought the blue watch in a heartbeat. I recently sold a blacked out watch and loved the green on the dial so I went that route.

    Now if I can get a marathon watch with a blue dial!!!
