Thanks,

The 1833 Atacama Field Day/Date Watch looks good. Any Idea on case size? I looked it up, 42mm.

Edited to add, Ninja dude had it covered.

There was a thread in the last six months or so about a German Watch Company who made time pieces for Luftwaffe Pilots back in the day

This watch Company is still in business, offering "Pilot" watches.

Might anyone remember the thread?

Kidding. Check out the Hamilton Jazzmaster

and the Christoper Ward Malvern C5 although it doesn't appear to have luminescent hands.

I'm lusting after a tritium watch, but do they really need to make them all with such large cases?

I am partial to Seiko divers.

I own the following and love them all. They don't have tritium hands, but the lume that they use glows much much brighter than tritium after a short "charging", lasts for hours.

Seiko SKX779 "Black Monster"




Seiko SKX007





They also have a new line of "Monsters" with teeth!

If I'm thinking the same one this was the website. They have a mid pilot watch that's 39mm but damn if it's ever in stock.

ETA: I've also kept an eye on some of the sites watchuseek's forums talk about like these guys.

I wish this was available in auto, the luminescence is perfect though. Not tritium, but lum paint on all 3 hands, and the dots outside hour markers. hard to get a good picture of it though.

in the daylight:

I see that your opinion is flawed. I have no recommendation for you other than a Timex.
