Super watch! Never Dark tech works better than advertised. I’m not easily impressed, Reactor rocks!!

Extremely accurate, appears very durable and fantastic lume.
The Never Dark technology is the most prominent feature of this watch.
The numerals and tips of the hands are filled with 12 layers of Super-LumiNova C3 – the brightest of the SuperLuminova offerings. Compared to my Phoibos PY007 divers watch – that apparently has 12 layers of Super-LumiNova BWG9, the Reactor watch is much brigher for several hours during the night, but after about 7 hours, the BWG9 remains brighter than the C3 compound.
Not a problem, as the Reactor Tritium tubes will be the brightest, probably starting at around 3-4 hours after latest charge of the Super-LumiNova.
The Lume of the Reactor watch is clearly the brightest I have ever seen on a watch – and with the added constant light from the Tritium tubes, this watch should cover any light level – including rapid switches from bright sunlight to darkness.
The ‘Pip’ on the bezel gives a good reference, but I would like to see the numbers on the bezel as indents rather than protuding numbers – and filled with a dark contrast enhancing material. Numbers have little contrast and can be hard to read. Mostly relevant if you really do dive with the watch and needs to track time submerged.
Accuracy is spot on – some 60 hours after setting the watch, the second hand is still 100% in sync with an atomic clock. No need for daily or weekly adjustments.
Only slight issue I have – with my 59 year old eyes – is the size and font of the date wheel. Numbers like 6 & 8 can be hard to tell apart, especially if the is a bit of shade on the numbers. A slightly larger cut-out for the day-date would help a lot.
Bracelet is comfortable and was fairly easy to adjust – but you do need the proper tools to size the watch – or pay a watch shop to do it you purchase online as I did. Wishlist for an updated model:
– larger opening for the day-date complication. – visible second/minute marker lines on the clock face – but not too prominent. The faint lines on the rehaut are too hard to read.
Finally packaging of the watch is nice with a storage ‘box’ having a second use as a soda/bear. Also received a nice, heavy Reactor ballpoint pen as a surprise gift with the shipment.
I purchased my watch at the Reactorwatch Europe website.
