Fratello Watches – Will Super-LumiNova Discolor When It Ages?
Aged tritium—it’s one of the big reasons why vintage watches look the way they do. But tritium has gone the way of the dodo, replaced largely by Super-LumiNova and other non-radioactive compounds. But have you ever wondered what tritium might look like 20, 30, or 40 years from now? Our friends at Fratello Watches look at the history of luminous material, and what it may look like when you’re ready to pass down that LumiNova-adorned watch of yours.
