    Chase Durer 1000XL UDT are they still around ??

    Hi

    Been looking at the Chase Durer 1000XL UDT for a few years and finally decided to try and track one down

    I've looked on the main website but they are out of stock , the usual eBay type places are drawing a blank and not a lot is being shown on google etc

    are they still making it ?

    Im based in the U.K if it makes any huge difference

    thanks

    Ill chime in as i always loved that watch and burn notice of course, afaik they havent produced more for a couple of years now and second hand has become super expensive. If you spot a cheap one most times are the 1gen i.e. Not the xl and beaten up pretty bad. Also ive seen some empty cases being sold which made me desist of looking for one for fear of getting an expensive franken.

    If you do get one i envy you already

    They're sadly not super durable either, which prob also contributes to their scarcity. Mine is about 8 years old with not a lot of miles on it but the stem feels like it's about to come out and the chrono second hand randomly started resetting to about the 48 second mark.

    Hi,
    I don't know if you are still looking or not, but every link on their website seems to not be functioning. My jeweler said that he has been having difficulty getting a reply for over a year. I was in contact with Marianne (Chase) some time ago and I got the impression that that the "other half" of the company was no longer involved which would explain some of the issues.

    I have the Special Forces UDT and love it! Mine has been very durable and with the exception of some of the PVD near the clasp wearing off it still looks great! My jeweler has even commented on how great it looks. He is primarily a Rolex jeweler but commented on how much he loves the watch and if you put a different name on it like Breitling it would be worth 10 times what they charge for the same features. I don't know about that but that's his opinion.

    I've given some thought to parting with mine as I'm trying to pare things down before I retire but it just doesn't seem like you can really sell watches for a decent price because everyone worries about fakes etc. Anyway, just my two cents on the brand.

    If I can answer any questions let me know!

    I dont think they have updated their website in years....pretty sure they are out of business. I had a Trackmaster Pro and sold it. I think they were another brand that grew out of nothing and just had great marketing.

    The ETA 251.262 inside is an excellent 27-jewel quartz movement. Central seconds and minutes, 12-hour totalizer, lap timer to 1/10 second.
