Seiko 5 SNZG15? Cheap, reliable and good looking IMHO.
If you don't mind shipping costs, you could buy some of mine
What do you have available?

Why not go for something a little different and get yourself a Vostok Russian diver.
Nice! This one is right up my alley Never had anything to do with tritium gas tubes. Are they quick to charge? How long will they glow?Glad to see you back up and going, Smashie!
The tubes don't need to charge, they are a permanent radioactive source. Having said that because it's gaseous tritium it's a very weak source as far as radiation goes.
I don't seem to have enough hours in a day
