FullGear is the world first customizable tritium watch brand. Starting from color of the case, design of the dial, color of hands, material of the strap, you could even have access to color of tritium tubes on the dial or hands. None of the other tritium watch brands offer customizing service as detailed as this before.

The FullGear Pioneer series features Swiss made GTLS from mb microtec, a leading tritium tube manufacturer located in Niederwangen, Switzerland. Used by several luxury watch brands, Gaseous Tritium Light Sources (GTLS) is an all-the-time glowing device which grants readability in even complete darkness.

GTLS is a tiny glass vessel filled with tritium gas; the electrons emitted by tritium gas are absorbed by the chemical layer inside the glass vessel and keep the tube glowing continually for more than 12 years.
