RADIUM IT'S HEALTHY STUFF - GLOW IN THE DARK OR WHAT!

Well, I had a query from Vicky today who was interested in buying a watch from us but  was concerned that the dial might be radium luminous.  Most pre war watches are of course radium lumed however, post war, we moved towards dials using the 3H isotope of Hydrogen, Tritium, to give luminosity through a Jablonski decade emission, today, on watch dials we use a proprietary compound known as Luminova which is a strontium aluminate photoluminescent compound invented in the early 1980s.

Anyhow, Vicky, just look at how well rated radium was in the 1920s and the health benefits so claimed - simply super stuff: -
