Decent, but I had very reasonable expectations as I'm aware that tritium is never going to beat Superluminova. For the initial charge that is. I'd say look at fully charged C3, wait 30 min. That's the level the tritium will be at when new.

I have way too many black dials.

there is an element of truth to the T word -

"According to secret documents issued to interrogators at Guantanamo Bay, obtained[6] and released by The Guardian, "the Casio F-91W digital watch was declared to be 'the sign of al-Qaeda' and a contributing factor to continued detention of prisoners by the analysts stationed at Guantanamo Bay. Briefing documents used to train staff in assessing the threat level of new detainees advise that possession of the F-91W available online for as little as 4 suggests the wearer has been trained in bomb making by al-Qaeda in Afghanistan."[7] United States Military intelligence officials have identified the F-91W as a watch that terrorists use when constructing time bombs.[8][9][10][11][12]

This association was highlighted in the Denbeaux study, and may have been used in some cases at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.[13] An article published in the Washington Post in 1996 reported that Abdul Hakim Murad, Wali Khan Amin Shah, and Ramzi Ahmed Yousef had developed techniques to use commonly available Casio digital watches to detonate time bombs.[14]"

Loads of reviews on this carnival watch, I've already advised on the brightness, don't see how night shots help. Camera exposure can vary so it's useless to judge based on single shots.
