mb-microtec AG is a Swiss company primarily well known for its watches that use tritium gas to illuminate the hands and numerals.

Merz & Benteli AG, established in 1918 by two chemists, Walter Merz and Albert Benteli, split to create mb-microtec AG in 1968. Before then, the production of luminous colors was supplied mainly to Swiss watchmaking industries, and even to renowned scientists such as Marie Curie. The usage of tritium gas/phosphor rather than glow paint was put into consideration for producing military-certified watches under the trade name Traser, and various other military components under glotac.
