*** NOTICE ABOUT ESTIMATED SHIP DATE *** Despite the page having an estimated ship date of March 21, we always ship the watches out within a day or two of receiving the final order from Massdrop. The final order usually arrives about two days after the drop ends. As such, as you can expect to get your watch much sooner than estimated.
These watches are ugly and look very cheap. I am surprised they are on Massdrop.

If you saw a woman with a nose the size of her head, is it a matter of opinion to say that the woman is ugly? Can a woman with a nose the size of her head win Miss Universe beauty pageant? That is impossible, yes? So a woman with a nose the size of her head is empirically ugly. Same as this watch. The numerals are unnecessarily huge and they are not in harmony with the rest of the detailing of the watch. Maybe you like ugly things and you are confused?

These watches are built like tanks. Definitely not cheap. But I'll agree the design on this particular model is not my favorite. It's a matter of taste. Otherwise, they are incredibly sturdy and well built.
- I couldn't see the movement brand on the Armourlite site but it is on the Massdrop site. ie Seiko - which caliber is it NH38A3J or the NH38A3M ?
Nice watch. If I jump I'm going for the Black Out version for sure.
Whakeback
Hi Whakeback, we use the Seiko NH38A3J mechanical movements made in Japan. The blackout version is a great choice! You'll love it!

What happened to the price? When I committed to the lowest drop price on 8/21, my total with shipping was $258. Now the lowest drop price is $275 + shipping. Assuming this drop completes, how much will it cost me?

How much is it to replace the tritium inserts?
Cofresi55
$10/tube, but all tubes must be replaced at the same time.
Got this watch during one of the previous drops - it's definitely one of my favorites - durable and sturdy. took it to our family vacation, and it held very nicely!
It comes full circle: The Swiss are knocking off G-Shocks. But with automatic mechanical movements. Pretty cool idea, I think. Too bad no exhibition case back.
Cloaca
Hi Cloaca, in lieu of the exhibition case back, these watches have an open-heart window to see the movement ticking away on the dial. Please watch the video at the bottom of the drop page. It's really cool to see the movement in action through the dial.
Can exhausted tritium tubes be replaced during maintenance? Also, I can't see the black-on-black bezel indices. I would be tempted to fill them in using a crayon like we used to do with unpainted dice in D&D. Anybody have experience filling recessed bezel indices to make them more visible?

Hi BostonCharlie, exhausted tritium tubes can indeed be replaced. We offer this option as part of our in-house servicing.
I got my watch the other day, and everything looks great. My only gripe so far is this - the NATO strap that came with the set is much too thick to slide into the space between the watch and pin. Does anyone else have this issue?
Benson23
I was able to get the NATO strap on, but I had to remove the pins, put the strap in place, and the put the pins back in over it. It was an extremely tight squeeze, but I believe it is supposed to be tight to prevent the watch from slipping around on the strap.
TacticalJackson
Hrmm... that's not really an effective way to swap out straps. I guess I'll have to stick with two-piece bands then.
Just received my watch in the mail! First impression is overall very positive, but the brightness of the tritium definitely leaves something to be desired. I was hoping for something on par with the brightness of my Trijicon night sights, but no such luck. With that said, the tritium definitely works, and i have no other initial complaints about the watch whatsoever. For those with small arms/wrists like me- the rubber strap does fit (barely), and the size of the watch in general is not too obnoxious for every day wear, though it would be if any larger.
Can u hand wind it
tmac59
Yes
Is there a warranty? For how long and is it by the manufacturer or some other entity?
cgalny

What's the power reserve on these? @armourlite

is there a way I can ask you a question about the Caliber T25 that just ended the other day. It's something is rather ask without making myself look stupid
Frogface
Sure! You can email us at customerservice at armourlite.com for a private response.
Not here to bash, but this watch looks like something you'd buy in a mall from an "island" store. Cheap looking imo.
jessewaldo
its probably just nlt your style. the tritium alone makes this watch extremely nice. just saying.
What is the case back material?
ayelwin22
Stainless steel engraved case back with four security screws

Just received my T25 in the mail and I'm delighted.
My first concern was that it might not get to my mailbox. It did.
The watch is quite striking. Low key but a very commanding presentation. I love it!
Mass drop is a most positive experience.

A basic G-Shock outshines this is on so many levels, it isn't even a question on what you should buy.

g shock watches are crap, sorry to say suunto puts them to shame all day. these are even far more nice.
you're really comparing a gschock to an Armour lite with an automatic movement? Dude get over yourself. You're whole argument is pointless simply because the people looking to buy g schocks aren't looking to buy this. Those looking to buy this are SPECIFICALLY looking for an automatic timepiece, not a digital one. Therefore, they're already willing to pay extra for this feature. And you're really bringing costs into this argument? Do you not know what type of community the watch enthusiast are? You're argument that " you marketed it as $249? Whereas a simple G-Shock can be purchased for only $50 " applies to every single watch out there, including casio's higher priced g schock range. Gschocks are good? Yea, but they don't have the defining mechanical features this watch possess. Also Tritium which is used in so many other watches are incredibly difficult/impossible to see past a meter and are standard in firearms.
what's the possibility of getting this with T100 markers? this combo is almost my ideal combo (ideal being T100 and automatic movement). a SS case/band would be nice too, but since there already is a combo with that but for $900, it is kind of too much IMO. I personally don't really care about the "tactical-ness" of a watch, but I really do love the look of tritium (and bright tritium at that). if there was a SS case/strap with automatic movement and T100 markers, then I would buy that in a heart beat if it was reasonably priced.

Hi Ryoma, since T100 uses approximately four times the amount of tritium gas as a T25 watch, it does have an added cost. I would highly recommend our Isobrite T100 Valor Series or Eclipse Series watches. They have a Swiss quartz instead of an automatic but since they come with a 10-year lithium battery, it's as close to an automatic as you can get. We occasionally offer these on Massdrop.
ArmourLite
I would be all over this with the T25s if it were in the $100-$150 range, even with the Japanese auto movement.
The style is definitely conflicting with the large window on a tactical watch. The HUGE logo on the face made the decision for me along with the unnecessary 200m/66oft measurement. It's all a bit too cluttered for my taste.
a lot of talk but only 1 guy joined the drop? i love the fact that this watch has automatic movement, and tritium markers. The Mil-style is nice too. But given the price, is it worth a go?
The blacked out version is oh so sweet!
An open-heart military-style tritium watch? Talk about conflicting styles. Nope, I'll pass.
CaptainBackfat
The conflicting style may in fact be the truly unique aspect of this offering--much like the completely blacked out but simultaneously highly visible T100 isobrite model offered a couple months ago. There are so many open heart dress watches, and so many standard looking tactical watches. This is the first tactical open heart I've come across--which at least makes it interesting even if the individual components are more ubiquitous.
How shock resistant is it
Jrumann59
Hi Jrumann59, while it's on the wrist you can engage in almost any kind of activity without the automatic movement getting affected. Plus, there's an internal shock absorber. We even strapped one of the quartz movement Caliber Series watches to an M4 and it came out unscathed! http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2014/06/robert-farago/armorlite-watch-torture-test/
If it was t100 I would be all over it...

FYI: T25 is 12 years as T100 is 25 years -illumination for the tritium. How many will actually be wearing this watch 12 years from now, let alone 25 years. I used to think the same thing, but for the price difference T25 is just as good. And most tritium sights for handguns are only T25 also.
tulman22
Wow, thx for heads up, here is what I know:
Radiation content is measured in millicuries (mCi), therefore, all watches with a T25 mark contain no more than 25mCi of radiation content and similarly, watches with a T100 mark, contain no more than 100mCi.
Which basically mean they glow more as there is more tritium, its about illumination, not a year span, which in this case is probably the same !
Thanks for the input though
I think this watch had good specs. and features for the price.
This is really tempting. Anyone care to speculate on how soon we might see an Automatic with Tritium in a Stainless case?
mavrick1903
Hi Mavrick1903, the only tritium illuminated automatics we have right now in a stainless steel case are the two models in the Isobrite Executive Series. Those go for upwards of $900. They feature a Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement.
Tough choices here. Struggling to not go multiples...
