The hands need tubes. Defeats the whole point otherwise.

All 3 hands do indeed have tritium tubes.

The second hand does not. At least mine does not. You can see in the video as well, the second hand sweeping around with zero glow.

No it’s fine. The sweep second hand on my AL203 does not have a tube. Even your picture above shows that, which is why I was confused. Does the mass drop version have three tubes? Mine is for sure just regular old phosphorescent “hold it under the light for a bit to make it glow” type material. Completely 2 dimensional. You can easily see there is no tube. It does glow for a bit after exposing it to light, I was just pointing out that a tritium tube on the second hand would be useful for timing things in the dark, and I miss my luminox for that one reason.

Correct, the ArmourLite Colorburst AL203 does not have tritium on the second hand. That model is from our very early days as a company. However, the Massdrop Ember T100 tritium watch being offered here has a tritium marker on the second hand. Almost all of our models these days has this feature.

Nice, thanks. The picture you put up and the video review at this spot here (https://youtu.be/ueBD4W7-zZ8?t=286) both didn't look like it had it, so I was just making sure. .
