The Swiss firm mb-microtec developed the technology to produce GTLS ( gaseous tritium light sources ) so small, they can be installed on the hands and dial of your wristwatch.
These light sources, marketed as «trigalight» or «mb-microtec illumination» are independent of a battery or any other source of outside energy, never need recharging or servicing and do not require the push of a button. They glow permanently and a 100 times brighter than anything comparable, for up to twenty years.
mb-microtec employs around 50 people and is located in Niederwangen just outside Bern in Switzerland. Self luminating light Sources for EXIT signs in hotel corridors or on airplanes to lead people to safety in an emergency with power failure, were some of the early and more traditional applications of this technology.
