Watches and straps
Whilst glow in the dark materials have been used with watches for many years, the Visible247 technologies and manufacturing techniques redefine what is possible and set a new performance benchmark.

Our client wanted to introduce a new range of watches where the whole dial glowed rather than just the hands. A key requirement was that the dials not only needed to perform in terms of glow but had to be a thickness of 0.87mm +/- 0.02mm). The thickness means that dials made in this way are capable of being used with virtually any movement and case i.e. glowing watches can be created for a brand as part of a collection without needing costly retooling.
In addition to manufacturing to this exacting thickness we have been able to incorporate a ‘date window’ in the dial further demonstrating our ability to manufacture to exacting tolerances.
Alongside the dials, a range of silicone watch straps has been developed.
In addition to making it easy to find a watch in the dark, the straps have been designed to deliver a “wow factor” under a range of lighting conditions, for example the “wow factor” (or “surprise” effect) is observed when walking from bright sunlight into a shaded environement such as a bar.
