How many of you have had a tritium tube fall out in your TSAR?

Conversely, how many of you have not lost a tritium tube?

A tritium tube fall out? Should be zero, unless the crystal broke as well.

Tritium tube become detached from the dial? Not on a TSAR, but, once when re-fitting a crystal on a Marathon Field, I crushed one vial and detached another.

No, I don't mean fall out of the watch - I mean fall off of it's mount. Detach. Unglued. Hanging or rattling around.

I have a Traser and had two Luminox’s when I rode my ridged (MC without shocks) from AZ to NV twice a month for years. None of the two had their tritium markers fall off of their positions.

Don’t know what they use, but it’s pretty good stuff.

I dropped in on the floor and with a thud, a tube was knocked out. Here it is next to a traser.

It's my holiday/beach/work/great outdoors watch. It's a great grab and go watch.
That pic was taken after a full day mixing concrete . I took a pic of it 30 minutes later after a shower. It cleaned up well...ready for a stroll down to the pub.

mine is also fine, even after a pinbar failure and it fell off my wrist.... at 30mph..... out the window.... case was a little scratched up, but it ticks away faithfully! a little scotchbrite pad and a buffing wheel, and it was good to go!

Re: I've had Three TSARs and Four GSARs

Something I have constantly told people about the Marathon SAR family of watches is that if you want a watch that will be perfect, with no "little" problems whatsoever, than this probably isn't a watch for you. These watches are made for the military, not for the common person. Therefore, there may be some small like quirks with the watches. For example, the bezel on my tsar has been very "gritty" since day 1, but it has never failed me at all. The sar family of watches are truly watches you can wear without worries of damage. My has been slammed into more things than I can remember
