LAS VEGAS, Jan. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The same Swiss tritium illumination technology that military marksmen and law enforcement officers rely on for effective gun sights is what ensures an ArmourLite tritium watch can always be seen in low-light conditions. For the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, ArmourLite will unveil its all-new ArmourLite Caliber Series lightweight polycarbonate watches.
During the four-day show, the four models in the ArmourLite Caliber Series will be on display in booth 541 on the first level of the Sands Expo & Convention Center.
The Caliber Series watches represent the first ArmourLite tritium watches to feature ultra lightweight polycarbonate case construction with anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The watches are powered by reliable Ronda 515 Swiss quartz movements. A unidirectional rotating bezel with a tritium marker is great for keeping elapsed time. For the avid diver or outdoorsmen, the watches in the Caliber Series offer 200m of water resistance.
Each model in the Caliber Series features green and orange T25 tritium markers. AL601 has a blue accent on the dial and bezel as well as a black nylon nato-style band with blue stitching. AL602 has an orange accent on the dial and bezel as well as a black nylon nato-style band with orange stitching. AL603 has a red and white accent on the dial and bezel as well as a black nylon nato-style band with red stitching. AL604 has a yellow accent on the dial and bezel as well as a black nylon nato-style band with yellow stitching.
The ArmourLite Caliber Series watches offer the following features:
- Green and orange T25 tritium markers
- Ultra lightweight polycarbonate case construction
- Ronda 515 Swiss quartz movement
- Anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal
- 200m water resistance rated for diving
- Unidirectional elapsed-time bezel with a tritium marker
- Nylon nato-style band
- MSRP: $299.00
The hands, number markers, and bezel on each ArmourLite Caliber Series watch features small, self-luminous tritium-filled vials. This safe and reliable permanent illumination technology allows the user to easily tell the time at a glance, even in the darkest lighting conditions. Tritium illumination is commonly used for the instrument dials in aircraft, compasses and night sights for weapons since it does not require a battery or external power supply and it remains constantly illuminated for 20+ years.
An ArmourLite representative will be available for interviews onsite during the SHOT Show. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit booth 541 to schedule an interview.
ArmourLite revolutionized the watch industry as the first manufacturer to combine shatterproof glass construction with tritium illumination. In 2011, the company proudly introduced the Isobrite watch line, the world's brightest and lightest tritium illuminated watches featuring ultra bright T100 tritium and ultra lightweight polycarbonate construction. Designed to meet the demanding needs of law enforcement officers, military personnel, first responders and extreme outdoorsmen, ArmourLite and Isobrite watches provide the ultimate synthesis of accuracy, durability, and ease of use in all lighting conditions.
