About GTLS All Nite watches feature a rare illumination technology called GTLS (Gaseous Tritium Light Source). This highly specialised technology was, until recently only ever used in advanced military hardware or pioneering safety equipment where a guaranteed light source was needed for safe operations in all hazardous environments and conditions.

Exactly the same technology has now been adopted by Nite in a range of advanced sports watches that offer the same standards of reliability and durability to non professional personnel.

Every Nite watch is fitted with a minimum of fifteen GTLS lamps, giving you a dial that can be read quickly and easily in all light levels.

Electrons emitted from the tritium gas excite the phosphor coating inside each GTLS lamp to produce a continuous light that will typically last between 10 and 20 years.

You don’t ever need to recharge. The chemical reaction inside each GTLS is permanently working. As soon as the light levels drop the lamps become clearly visible.
