ArmourLite Watch Company revolutionized the watch industry as the first and only company to combine ultra bright T100 tritium illumination with ultra lightweight polycarbonate construction. Designed to meet the demanding needs of law enforcement officers, military personnel, first responders and extreme outdoorsmen, ArmourLite’s watches provide the ultimate synthesis of accuracy, durability, and ease of use in all light conditions. Designed from the ground up to eliminate the weaknesses inherent in other tactical watches, ArmourLite created a shatterproof crystal that far surpasses the durability of traditional crystals. Glass strength is rated in Vickers, a scale that measures the hardness of a material. Most watches have a glass strength of 700 Vickers. The glass in the ArmourLite Professional Series, Automatic Series, Colorburst Series and Captain Field Series watches has been tested to a hardness of 6,000 Vickers. To match the strength of this extraordinary glass, ArmourLite developed special 316L stainless steel housings and mated the two with a custom rubber retaining-ring that ensures superior shock resistance and watertight construction. Most ArmourLite watches also have screw-down crowns that allow them to remain water resistant to a depth of 100 meters, and the Professional Series watches feature unidirectional rotating bezels to easily track elapsed time during critical activities. ArmourLite’s extraordinary combination of design, materials and construction methods ensures that the watches can withstand the rigors of the most challenging environments.
