Over time, the tritium tubes in your watch will start to lose their tritium tube illumination. This is due to the fact that tritium is a radioactive element with a half-life of 12 years. Watches with tritium vials on the watch dials will start to decay over time with a gradual loss of luminescence. There is no specific time period in which you can say the watch will not be visible but the tritium will become less and less visible in low-light conditions.


You may want to consider replacing the tritium tubes in your tritium watches when you feel you would like to increase the illumination. This will ensure that your watch continues to perform at its best and remains visible in all lighting conditions.

There are a few things to keep in mind when replacing tritium in your watch. First, you will need to find a qualified facility that is experienced in working with tritium. Second, you will need to make sure that the replacement tritium glass tubes are fresh tritium from a reputable source. There are sellers from eBay that sell tritium but there is no assurance that you are getting fresh tritium tubes and you don't want to be handling radioactive substances on your own. Finally, you will need to make sure whomever is handling the tritium in the watches and installing the new tritium, handles the work with care as it is a radioactive element.

Replacing tritium tubes with different colors.

Restoring your tritium watches to their original lume color is only part of the tritium restoration services we offer if you want to change the lume color, you can replace the tritium tubes with ones of different colors.

For example, you could replace all the tritium tubes on your watch with green ones, blue ones, or white ones, yellow ones, or orange ones. You can mix and match colors to create a unique look for your watch. We are not doing RED color.

Replacing the tritium in your watch will give it a fresh, new look.

If you're looking to give your tritium watch a fresh, new look, then replacing the tritium tubes is a great option. You will feel like you are wearing a brand new watch but you didn't have to pay for a brand new watch. Replacing the tritium in your watch is a relatively inexpensive way to keep your watch looking and performing its best. Estimated costs of replacing with green tubes start at about $150 depending on how many tubes you want to replace and the color of the tubes.

At our service center, we can replace the tritium tubes on your watch dials with fresh tritium. This will restore the bright, glowing appearance of your watch, and you'll be able to enjoy it for years to come.




You helped me almost a year ago with a tritium replacement for my Luminox P-38 Lightning GMT. It is fantastic. So much that I want to get that done for another Luminox that I have.
