I'm hesitant in ordering one, because as usual it's a huge gamble with having to pay additional import fees and taxes here in Europe. Massdrop should facilitate some EU shipping center, because whenever stuff is shipped from within the EU you only pay for shipping. It's really annoying that any potential 'good deal' is killed by this... I had to pay a lot extra (in total 24% on top) for my Armourlite pocket watch :-(

We'll discuss this idea with Massdrop and see if this is possible. The problem is that as a US-based company, Massdrop would need to bring the products into the EU and pay the import taxes as soon as the products enter the EU. That would drive up the cost of the product. The customer would end up paying the tax in the end, one way or another.

That's a fair point: I totally understand someone needs to pay. Point taken. I think I was to much focused on my own pocket. Thanks for clarifying! Much appreciated.
Why is the black version with the green tubes depicted if it’s not available in this offering? Or perhaps I’m missing something?

I've taken your advice and e-mailed your customer service. Thank you.
Ok just the dial, not the rest of the watch. Thanks for clarifying.
By the way, does anyone know which glows brighter...the green or the blue tubes? I’m guessing the green are a little brighter.

Green is the brightest!

Only 17 sold as I write this...which surprises me a bit. I would have thought far more would have sold by now. I have a Ball and a Luminox, both of which have T25 tubes, and great in a darkened room, especially once my eyes adjust to the dark. Having never owned anything with T100, I can’t help but wonder how much brighter T100 would be. I also have a few Seikos, and can confirm that shortly after exposing them to light, their luminescence is brilliant, and though the brightness diminishes quickly, enough of it remains making the markers visible in the dark for at least seven hours. Anyway, this “drop” (hate that use of the word) is very tempting for a hopeless watch acquirer (not really a collector) like me.

Hi stoutdog, actually the "drop" in Massdrop stands for the price dropping as more people buy a product. That's the main concept behind Massdrop! :-)
I'm in agreement with you on words. When did the reference of # go from pound sign to hash tag and prejudice to racists etc?
Nitewatches.com is the only company with tritium except Ball watches. You are seriously getting taken to the cleaners. https://www.nitewatches.com/store/us/

There are a lot of tritium watches out there (Marathon, Bertucci, Luminox, Aragon, holy crap there are SO many) not to mention all the ones I forgot to mention.

Which watch is taking you to the cleaners? Big diff between T100 and T25, I won't EVER bother with another T25, they just are pathetic, haven't yet seen what T100 looks like but am very curious. Are Nitewatches taking people to the cleaner, or This Isobrite? The Nitewatch models I looked at in this range are not as good spec wise at all, pretty nice but T25 and quartz and about $80 more...which do you prefer
This is a really NICE LOOKING WATCH! I know it's a little dressy but I may just use it as a tool watch, sapphire and no bezel to scratch up, so thin, it would be great for my work, much less chance of getting it caught on something, and much less chance of scratching once it does....
This seems like a pretty darn good deal, I'm not an expert, but you can get Chinese Yelang watches, pretty well made, and to get T100 they are around $230, but they have far less, smaller Tritium markers than this watch, just really short indice markers and certainly not numbers made up of tritium sticks, oh but they are automatics, even so though, this seems a really good deal for a T100 watch, and especially with a SS bracelet, leather and a NATO? Nice one, I've been pretty critical of drops lately, thank you Massdrop and thank you Armourlite!

Go to nitewatches.com and the little thing tubs on the dinner watch is a t25. The others have t100. Any watch company with the t100 tubes instantly add 300 to the price.
I hate my T25s without need of comparison, I haven't seen T100 yet, I hope they're better, but I don't see what that has to do with how I feel about the T25's, I don't like them because I can't see them, it's pretty simple. Maybe I won't like the T100's either, dude
OK, this is getting closer to what I am looking for. My only critique is the "6" is redundant. The numbers go against the minimalist design of the timepiece. The twelve could just be two bars or a different color single bar. I would also like to see the crown at the 4 o'clock position. That would be awesome!
This watch is boardeline too big for my wrist, but I snagged it anyway. I’ve been waiting for aa Amrourlite T-100 ‘dress’ or daily watch that is less utility, and more dress/business casual. Very excited.

How do you like it so far?

I’m absolutely loving it! It’s a beautiful watch and actually fits me very nicely, due to it being so sleek and slim.
I have ave young children, so I am up in the middle of the night (moreso that I’d like). Having this piece on my wrist guarantees I will always know what time it is! It’s a beautiful thing.
Too expensive for a quartz

You must be new to watch collecting, so let me enlighten you. First off, tritium tubes don't come cheap especially brighter ones and this watch comes with over a dozen of them. Secondly, this isn't using some garbage quartz movement you'd find inside of some $10 throw-away Walmart watch, there are actually different grades of quartz movements, some of which can come in watches costing well over 10 times this watch. There are also crappy mechanical movements too costing a fraction the price of a quality quartz movement, you can definitely get an auto movement in this watch and at this price point with all the above mentioned features, but who says it'll be any good? Lastly, it's AR sapphire, which, again, isn't cheap. FYI quartz watches can range from $10 to over several grand depending on what additional technology is inside it and yes the price is entirely justifiable. There are high accuracy quartz watches out there with temperature control that increases accuracy and their accuracy is an issue to hardcore watch collectors, even if that means being a few seconds more accurate a week which can add up. I recommend doing a little more research on what different type of quartz watches are out there before thinking that one can't be worth it's price.

I got the one with a blue leather strap for a killer deal on Amazon about a week ago. Don't let the reviews dissuade you (I couldn't find much online) it's plenty bright to see in the dark once your eyes have adjusted. Awesome watch, I'm going to pick up a steel bracelet for mine!
Good price. But Not-so-brite. https://youtu.be/2hTGLEfjmUY?t=7m54s (jump to 7:54 for lume comparison)

Obviously you did not pay attention to what the reviewer said about how Tritium works. This comparison is like apples to oranges. Sure, the Seiko Monster looks great but it will wear off. If you have a watch with any kind of luminescent paint, you need to "charge it" with light. Like the guy did in the video. Furthermore, if you would keep said watch in the dark for a week, you would not be able to tell the time as there would be no lume "left" whatsoever: it wears off. The watch with tritium however, would be as clear as before.
