Swiss Super-LumiNova® pigments are the choice of the Swiss watch industry for the highest possible afterglow performance.

The materials are all 100% Swiss made by RC Tritec. RC Tritec Ltd. is a Swiss company with more than 80 years tradition that started in 1934 with luminous pigments for the watch industry.

Swiss Super-LumiNova® is non-radioactive, REACH compatible, highly temperature resistant and resistant to environmental influences.

It works like a light storage battery, where light charges the battery and afterwards the light is continuously emitted. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any ageing.

The luminous pigment is chargeable with sunlight or artificial light. Mixed with a suitable specific binder, Swiss Super-LumiNova® is applied on the dials and hands of our watches.

With sufficiently sized markings, a full night legibility can be achieved according to ISO 3157.

Triple quality control is standard practice to maintain the highest possible standard and we are proud to use these high quality products on our watches.
