Ok, now I have to admit that we are a little excited about this one. The Watch Guys are truly pleased to present the newest Citizen Atomic Timekeeping model, the World Perpetual AT. Now as you may know Citizen has been making Eco-Drive watches with their 'AT' (atomic time) feature for a few years now. It all started with the Skyhawk AT and blossomed from there. To the point now were several series offer this truly wonderful feature. In fact, combined with the Eco-Drive feature it makes for one of the best watches available today. I mean come on... no battery to replace, no need to adjust the time and no need to adjust the date! Can it get any better? Well, in fact it can and it has with the all new World Perpetual AT.
First off is the overall design. It is much simpler than the other watches Citizen is designing with the same technology. The World Perpetual has the general appearance of a standard 3-hand watch. No overly complicated sub-dials, no e6b slide-rule nonsense, just a clean sleek and professional looking watch but still packed with the best features. We are talking World Time with 26 different cities pre-programmed, Eco-Drive, Perpetual Calendar, 200 Meter Water Resistance, Atomic Timekeeping, Solid Stainless Steel or Titanium cases and perhaps one of the best features rarely found on a Citizen watch... a Genuine Sapphire Crystal. That's right, you can't even get that on the flagship Skyhawk model.
So it looks good and also redefines atomic timekeeping with radio controlled accuracy in the USA, Europe, Japan and China where radio signals are received both automatically and on demand. You never have to change a battery or set the time ever again, even for DST (daylight savings time)! The watch will actually set itself. Wake up the next morning to find your watch has already adjusted the time properly. You really can't ask for more.
This particular version is available in two varieties, Stainless Steel or Titanium (CB0020-50E and CB0030-56E respectively). Unfortunately, Citizen has a "no internet" sale policy on this watch so you can't buy it from one of our websites. Fortunately, you can call us up and order it directly over the phone. So for more information and to order one for yourself please call us Toll Free at 1-888-243-6329.

The Watch Guys are please to announce yet another option for the ladies when it comes to Tritium illuminated watches. And for the first time in several years, it is actually a ladies size! Working with the designers and management at H3 Tactical, the premier Swiss Watchmakers of Tritium Timepieces, Gem of the Day™ assisted with the concept and the design of these beautiful ladies sport watches and have please to announce that they are finally here.
Until this new H3 Tactical Lady Trooper, all women's tritium illuminated watches were either larger midsize watches (around 40 millimeters) or downright huge men's sized watches (up to 50 millimeters). A true women's watch size was unavailable. But the new Lady Trooper is just a mere 29 millimeters in diameter. It's large enough to read easily, but still a true ladies sport watch.
The new Lady Trooper is made to the high standards H3 Tactical has established for all their watches, The watch case is 316 grade surgical stainless steel with a screw down back. The crystal is the new super hard and scratch resistant K1 mineral glass. And the watch is water resistant to 100 meters or 330 feet below sea level.
But the most important feature is the ultra bright, self powered Tritium Illumination. These watches glow up to 100 times brighter than conventional watches. And they never need to be recharged by any external light source. These watches will glow brightly for up to 25 years.
All of this in a lovely ladies size watch! Finally! Be sure to check out more info and purchasing details here: Gem of the Day, Time 4 Tritium and TopFlight Watches

The all new TRASER P6600 Type 6 ELITE RED is the very first military grade watch to both offer the new RED TRITIUM and to meet and exceed the toughest military standards, MIL-SPEC-F. The P6600 is highly stable and shock resistant, with greatly improved water resistance. Traser watches are known throughout the world for their strength, durability and quality. But this new series is made to even a higher standard.
What makes the new P6600 RED ELITE so very different from all other military watches is the unique RED TRITIUM which is less bright than traditional green tritium. Although the wearer can read the time with precision accuracy in night ops, the watch cannot be spotted by others, protecting the wearing from being identified by the enemy.
Red Tritium has only recently been perfected by the engineers at Traser, H3 mb-microtec, the only manufacturer of Tritium Gas Tube illumination in the world. At this time only one watch has this very special feature. It is not available from any other manufacturer or on any other brand of watch.
On the ELITE RED, Red Tritium marks the hour, minute and second hands, as well as the hour positions. Blue Tritium marks only the 12 o'clock marker on the dial.
The Traser ELITE RED P6600 is also water resistant to 600 feet (200 meters) and has the improved K1 Hardened Mineral Glass Crystal for improved strength and scratch resistance.
Like it's nearly identical cousin, the Traser Mil-Spec-G, the new Traser P6600 ELITE RED has both a Day of the Week and a Date display.
