If you have been following the Forum, you will have seen occasional requests for a military style watch with the luminous tritium glass vials. It's no secret that these are manufactured by MB-Microtec in Switzerland and it's no secret that they won't sell the tubes to anyone else, only manufacture "on behalf of". I've had a few made with "Precista" dials, which whilst not unique, is different and the price is good. Available with choice of Rhino or NATO strap.
