OMG, sometimes I grow so tired of people on watch forums asking whether radium dialed watches are “safe”. I keep pointing out that there has been no wave of watchmakers dying of bone cancer, that our fathers and grandfathers managed to survive with their radium dialed watches on their arms. I tell them “Don’t lick the dial. Don’t snort the dust”. Still they ask “Is it safe to keep it in my bedroom?”
You know, if you’re gonna worry about it, DON’T BUY A FUCKING RADIUM DIALED WATCH!!!!!
