Tough, practical and great on the hill, all Nite watches self-illuminate at night thanks to gaseous tritium light source (GTLS) technology, making them easy to read in all conditions. The Nite MX20-202 is water-resistant to 200m, and features a twisting bezel, stainless steel casing, Swiss-made movement and a 10-year lithium battery. But it is a stripped-down option that tells the time but doesn’t feature extras that are available on some other analogue watches.
Screen size 27mm diameter
Features unidirectional bezel, GTLS illumination, 10-year battery
Verdict: The Nite Nite MX20-202 is very robust, reliable and built to cope with pretty much anything you can throw at it on the hills. It’s as good as it gets for a basic analogue watch, which is why it won ‘Best in Test’.
