Exploring Time in Winter

Exploring Time in Winter

When temperatures drop, elegance becomes a warm refuge. In the thrilling world of watches, time measurement merges with the bold challenge of facing the coldest season with authentic style and functionality.

Exploring Time in Winter

Watch brands capture the very essence of winter. It's not just about essential accessories; they are authentic style statements that allow you to defy the season with grace and personality.


The choice of your watch strap is not only a matter of style but also adaptability to changing seasons. In winter, opting for a leather strap reveals its practical utility. Leather not only adds a touch of timeless elegance but also comfortably adapts to low temperatures. Its flexibility and softness offer a comfortable fit, avoiding the stiffness often associated with cold temperatures.

On the other hand, in the heat of summer, the story is different. Wrists tend to swell and sweat, and leather, being a natural material, can suffer from constant exposure to sweat. This is where the versatility of metal bracelets comes into play. Not only do they withstand the effects of heat and humidity, but they also offer a refreshing sensation on the skin. Many watch enthusiasts choose to switch to metal bracelets during the warmer months, allowing the skin to breathe and avoiding premature wear of leather straps.


In the dark times of winter, the opportunity to illuminate every moment arises. The intriguing lighting technology that defines watches shines with the innovative contribution of Luminox and its 'ALWAYS VISIBLE' feature.

The ALWAYS VISIBLE feature is powered by Luminox Light Technology (LLT), an innovative self-powered illumination system that utilizes tiny microscopic gas tubes to achieve maximum visibility in complete darkness, under any conditions. 

This unique and advanced Swiss technology enables watches to ensure quick visibility, meaning they provide a constant glow 24/7 for up to 25 years. This technology is highly suitable for special forces equipment as it does not require pressing buttons to activate the light.

The patented technology lies in the functionality of small tritium gas tubes, also known as borosilicate glass capsules, which remain ALWAYS VISIBLE on hour markers, hands, and in some cases, on the bezels. This technology is particularly unique in that, although it contains tritium, it is entirely safe for everyday use.

Another brand that utilizes tritium to innovate in the field of illumination is Vostok Europe.

In order to provide maximum readability in the dark, they incorporate 16 Swiss-made tritium tubes on the dial and three tubes on the hands of their watches. The tritium tubes offer watch illumination with unparalleled legibility in the dark. These Swiss components are independent of a battery or solar charge, require no maintenance, and have a guaranteed uninterrupted luminosity of at least 10 years.

Ball safely and stably captures tritium gas (H₃) with its advanced technology.

Ball safely places this pure tritium gas in small tubes made of luminous mineral glass. These tubes have inner walls coated with a luminescent material that emits a cool light when activated by the electrons released by tritium. These tubes are carefully incorporated into the hands and dial of the watch to avoid any risk of breakage.


Ball also incorporates original dial designs that match the season. However, when it comes to winter dials, the Montblanc Iced Sea sets the benchmark.
