Why Choose Watches with Light Up Dials?

A wristwatch is an integral wardrobe piece, that not only looks great but aids with daily life. Watches with light up dials are even more helpful since they employ a feature that allows you to easily check the time when you’re out at night, in a poorly lit room, or even during a deep-sea diving session. 

There is a wide variety of designs, with many light up dials available in different forms. The majority of these are made with Super-LumiNova, a safe and long-lasting material that is charged by both natural and artificial light.

As expected, some watches with light up dials are better than others, due to the overall quality of the timepiece. Some watches have improved features such as water-resistant or scratch-resistant faces, which will enable you to see your illuminated dial better.

Choosing the best watch for you may prove challenging, due to the abundance of options on the market. However, most light up dials are made from safe materials, and come with exciting features, and gorgeous designs, ensuring that you’ll find something that suits your wants and needs.

How Do Watches with Light Up Dials Work?

Luminous dials on watches have been around since the First World War when soldiers needed to see the time in low-light conditions. Radium was painted directly on to the hands since it was incredible at illuminating not only dials but entire rooms. However, this substance was discovered to be radioactive and quickly fell out of favor due to it being unsafe.

By the 1960s, promethium and tritium were being used for light up dials, since they were safe than radium. However, their luminous ability would lessen over time, meaning that something stronger had to be invented, which was both harmless and effective when it came to illumination.

Nowadays, almost all luminous watch dials are made with Super-LumiNova, a material discovered by Kenzo Nemoto in 1993. As mentioned earlier, it uses natural and artificial light to charge it, meaning that it doesn’t lose its strong glow, and is 100% safe.

Super-LumiNova is made with strontium aluminate, which emits a green or blue glow, that will be visibly bright for several hours. If you notice that the luminosity of your dial begins to dim, you simply need to expose your timepiece to the sun, or an artificial light source. This will charge the material so that it can illuminate your timepieces’ dial again.

Like any watch, light up dials can be affected by too much moisture, so you must look after your timepiece. However, there are many waterproof watches with luminous dials available, which can be used in the darkest depths underwater.

Affordable Watches with Light Up Dials

The price tag of a watch usually reflects several factors; craftsmanship, special features, and the brand you are buying from. There is a variety of watches on the market that come at affordable prices and have been highly manufactured.

When it comes to light up dials, it is important to buy a quality-made timepiece from a well-respected and trusted brand. You should also take into account the style of the watch. If you want something elegant, then there are many designs out there that encompass a light up dial. Likewise, if the movement is important for you, then try to find a classic mechanical timepiece that has modern functions.

If you want an elegantly designed watch, with a reasonable price tag, then check out our selection of light up dial watches at Nordgreen. Our first-rate collection of watches won’t disappoint and you’re sure to find something that suits your personal preferences.
