How good are Reactor watches?

Reactor watches are famed to have glows lasting for 8 hours or more, but so far in my experience with this watch, they last at most 3-4 hours. After that, the tritium tubes take over and light up the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock marks, plus the hands of course.

Are Reactor watches waterproof?

Every Reactor Watch shares a group of features we call the Reactor DNA. Every Reactor is fitted with our exclusive screw-down crown system, the only screw crown to maintain 100M water resistance when unscrewed. All casebacks are solid forged from the same material as the case.

How do you set a reactor watch?

Simply unscrew the crown and pull it all the way out as if to change the time. Then click the top start/stop button to advance the hand in one second intervals until it is set to your desired position. Make sure to screw the crown down tightly when finished.

What is a reactor electrical?

A reactor, also known as a line reactor, is a coil wired in series between two points in a power system to minimize inrush current, voltage notching effects, and voltage spikes. Reactors may be tapped so that the voltage across them can be changed to compensate for a change in the load that the motor is starting.

What is a synonym for reactor?


  • activator.
  • catalyst.

Do REACTOR watches take batteries?

All REACTOR watches using a quartz movement do require a battery to operate. If your watch needs a new battery, we suggest you return the watch to us or have a qualified jeweler replace the battery for you.

What do reactors do in substations?

In an electric power transmission grid system, switchyard reactors are installed at substations to help stabilize the power system. For transmission lines, the space between overhead line and ground forms a capacitor parallel to transmission line, which causes an increase in voltage as the distance increases.

What is the difference between transformer and reactor?

However, there are major differences between the two. While a Power Transformer is designed for efficient power transfer from one voltage system to another, a shunt reactor is intended only to consume reactive VArs (or in other words it can be stated as to produce lagging VArs). In reactor there is just one winding.

What is a reactor used for?

The main job of a reactor is to house and control nuclear fission—a process where atoms split and release energy. Fission and Fusion: What is the Difference? Reactors use uranium for nuclear fuel. The uranium is processed into small ceramic pellets and stacked together into sealed metal tubes called fuel rods.

What is a reactor person?

reactor (plural reactors) A person who responds to a suggestion, stimulation or other influence. Synonym: reacter Hyponym: respondent. (industrial) A structure used to contain chemical or other reactions.
