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.
I saw this brand Alexandre Christie Night vision watch, they have their tritium watch on display. But it said T100 instead of T25.

Look for Ball watch photos if you wanna see night shots of tritium. But as mentioned, your eyes see differently from cameras. Camera shots also depends how long you set the shuttle speed, the exposure etc.

T25 means less than 25 millicures of gas in the tubes
T100 means less than 100 millicures of gas in the tubes

T100 sometimes can have less than T25 and just put T100 for marketing purpose.

I heard its the total amount of gas in the watch and not individual tube.



Saw this in the stores. Colleague said it look like a copy of ball marvelight.

just wondering.

any advantages from buying watches from boutiques instead of the usual ADs?

boutiques rarely give discounts, makes sense to go to ADs instead whom usually give a certain % of discount.


so what benefits are there purchasing from boutiques?

are their stocks "newer"? is it easier to approach those boutiques in an event if yr watch needs waranty servicing since its a direct purchase?

depends - rolex does not have a boutique... these are collaborations with AD. IWC, AP - yes they have a boutique. If you have a more esteemed service and brand specific free memorabilia such as accessories, then boutique is the way to go. No such nonsense such as newer stock.... boutique specific designs, yes.

For IWC, you can buy it from anywhere and still bring it back to boutique for servicing.
