    Any Traser watch fans out there - show us your Traser

    Thought this would be worth a try (apologies of it has been done before) as you don't see many Traser watches spoken about on watch forums.

    In the last thirteen (13) years I have had as my main watch a Traser. My introduction to Traser watches was in 2006 when I acquired, in the UK, a Traser P6506 Commander 100. This watch gave me faithful service for around 11 years and still does as a second watch. In 2017 I acquired, in Australia, a Traser Special Force 100 which is now my main watch.

    What attracted my to these watches (and they are both quite similar) were the following features:

    > Trigalite tritium self illuminating technology by MB Microtec (makers of Traser watches and, I understand, suppliers of Trigalite to other watch makers and users) that enables the time to be clearly seen in any environment.

    > Water resistant to 20 ATM (200 metres) not that I am a diver but it is nice to know if I fall off a jetty it won't wreck my watch.

    > (uni) Rotating bezel that is marked in 5 sec/min intervals. Allows easy to time of function, tasks, etc. Important on divers watches but a facility I used (probably with a previous watch, Seiko, when doing law exams, etc)

    > An uncluttered dial that makes easy reading at a glance. An assisted by a black dial and bight white hands (including the second hand)

    > Rugged too. We've all seen the youtube video of a Traser watch being run over by a tank

    > Reliable too. Mine have kept perfect time since 2006.

    Been having this one for a pretty long time. Mainly use it when traveling and vacationing. Light and holds up to most elements I put it through. Tritium is fading a lot but still in great shape.

    Hi "The Watchmaker" that's a shame they are a great watch and really like the Trigalite illumination systems (which, in my view, is far superior to that of some of the really expensive watch brands). Though the US and your firm are still showing on traser.com website.

    Though I wasn't necessarily ready to buy just yet I was thinking of their P59 Aurora GMT watch for use on overseas travel.

    Thank you for your email and yes, it is possible for us to replace all of the trigalights in your watch.

    The cost for servicing, new dial ring, hands and bezel would be £230.00 (hands would be the same style as already on watch).

    Service includes;
    All "O" rings and seal gaskets will be inspected and replaced as necessary.
    The case and bracelet will be ultrasonically cleaned.
    The battery will replaced with new.
    The movement will be inspected and tested for health i.e. circuit tested for consumption, rate and mechanical function
    Strap pins will be replaced
    The bezel will be removed, inspected, cleaned and reset for function
    On assembly your watch will be pressure tested for water resistance up to the original specification of the watch prior to despatch and a printout of the test results will be provided along with a work shop report showing all parts replaced and work completed. (See notes on water resistance)

    Back from service today. Old bezel for comparison. I got a new sapphire too as my original was scratched at 11 o'clock and the external AR had been damaged over the years.
