A wristwatch that runs on nuclear energy has gone on sale. It's completely safe, and there’s a very good chance it will last longer than any previous watch you have ever owned. 

Strapping your wrist with a watch that is powered by some kind of nuclear chain reaction might sound insane, but there’s method in the madness. 

First we need to emphasise again, that the Nuclear wristwatch is 100 per cent safe. Even the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says so, having given the watch its approval. 

It works by 100 quadrillion (yes, this is a word – we checked) radioactive hydrogen atoms systematically destroying themselves at a rate of 250 million atoms a second. If this sounds like a lot, be reassured that even after 12.3 years of continual atom bombardment, there will still be 50 quadrillion inside the watch. That’s 50,000,000,000,000,000 atoms. 

The hands of the watch glow a luminous green while the 12 o’clock point is a bright orange. Sitting on a stainless steel black clock face, it’s an eye-catching display. The Nuclear Wristwatch is also water resistant up to 100m. 

The Nuclear Watch is available from www.gadgetsandgear.com now for $175.
