We were constantly asked to combine our shatterproof Armourglass crystal with our lightweight carbon fiber reinforced cases. It wasn’t easy since the Armourglass requires a very special fitting. Despite the challenges, we found a way to make it happen and combine the best of both worlds. We proudly introduce the all-new ArmourLite Operator Series watches! For the ultimate protection, the shatterproof Armourglass crystal can withstand up to 6,000 Vickers, whereas most watch crystals can only withstand about 700. Using the same technology as bulletproof glass, we have achieved a crystal that won’t shatter even when one layer is compromised. Long-lasting illumination is made possible by Swiss tritium markers by Trigalight. Powering this watch is a reliable Swiss Ronda 515 quartz movement. For the underwater explorers, this dive-friendly watch offers a water resistance of 100 meters and a unidirectional ratcheting diver bezel to keep track of elapsed dive time.

Swiss Tritium Illumination
ArmourLite watches have tiny glass tubes that are filled with tritium gas and then hermetically sealed. The electrons of the gas continuously react with phosphorescent paint resulting in a radio luminescent light source that glows constantly for up to 25 years. No external power source or charging-by-light is necessary to maintain the glow. The glow is completely self-powered.
The watch is protected by shatterproof Armourglass crystal that can withstand up to 6,000 Vickers, whereas most watch crystals can only withstand about 700. Using the same technology as bulletproof glass, we have achieved a crystal that won’t shatter even when one layer is compromised.
Ultra Lightweight Case
The watch features an ultra lightweight and extremely durable carbon fiber reinforced case with a diameter of 43.5mm. The double-gasket push-in crown on the right side of the case is protected by two side shields. For keeping track of elapsed dive time, the case has a unidirectional ratcheting diver bezel.
Swiss-Made Ronda Movement
The watch is powered by a reliable and accurate Swiss-Made Ronda 517 quartz movement with a day and date display. Ronda is one of the most respected makers of quartz movements and strictly adheres to an ISO 9001 quality control system to ensure that every movement meets the most rigorous standards.
