This popped up on my radar screen the other day when someone pointed out that the new Aviator GMT has arrived in the USA with the T100 dial. The Aviator GMTs in Asia appear to have T25 printed on their dials.
Today, I just noticed that the US version of the EH Trieste has T100 printed on the dial, yet Asian Triestes have T25 printed on them.
Are we North Americans getting a little extra radiation for our money?
Is there really a lume difference between the North American and Asian versions of these models, or is Ball putting the T100 label on North America-bound watches when the watches really are T25 (or under)? (I understand that the "T" label on the dial merely signifies the maximum, not the actual, tritium content.)
The bottom line question for this major Ball fan is: When a current model Ball dial reads, "T100," am I really getting T100 (or at least something greater than T25)?
