Just a little follow up on a previous story. Remember when we introduced the H3 Tactical Ladies Commander Tritium watch? Remember when we said it was a great design and perfect size for woman? And that we expected it to be very popular? Well it turns out we were right (don't worry, it doesn't happen very often).

Well, it seems someone is paying attention out there. If you recall, we did an article a few weeks ago and discussed the need for a ladies Tritium watch. In fact, there is a down right void in the watch industry right now. Or at least there was...

The Traser Aviator Bestmann is one of the best watches available in the Traser Tritium Watch Line.
Traser starts off be using one of the finest ETA Swiss 25 Jewel Automatic movement. Then encases this movement within a beautifully crafted retro design stainless steel case. the case itself is wonderfully designed and finished out beautifully from top to bottom. In fact, every part of this watch was well thought out and wonderfully produced.
Next we move to the dial which pays homage to Bücker Aeroplanes, featuring a special logo on the left side of the dial. Then top it all off with a Genuine Sapphire Crystal top and bottom (Exhibition case back).
The Traser Aviator Bestmann rivals the finest prestige Swiss watches and, frankly, beats them all. That's because, of all the most honored Swiss Automatic Watches, only Traser offers the incredible WHITE TRITIUM Trigalight® illumination. H3 mb-microtec is the only manufacturer of White Tritium Gas Tubes in the world, and they are simply not available to any other manufacturer.
The entire Aviator Collection has been created by Traser in homage to the great Bücker Aeroplanes. Pioneers in aviation, Bücker aircraft were among the finest and most innovative ever built. Traser is honoring that tradition with this fine series of watches.
The Bücker Bestmann was the last Bücker aeroplane built. It was a single engine plane with an enclosed cabin and a single low wing design. It was one of the finest aerobatic planes of its day. Many consider the legendary Bü 181 Bestmann one of the finest aircraft ever built.
Traser is crafting each individually made Aviator Bestmann with that same attention of quality, innovation and design excellence. World wide production is limited to just 200 pieces and each Bestmann is numbered on the case back with its own number out of the 200 pieces. In addition the watch comes in a wooden collector's case that has the Bestmann Seal Certificate, bearing the same number out of the series of 200.
The watch is fitted with an exhibition back so the owner can view the workings of the fine ETA movement. And the watch is equipped with a compass style bezel which can rotate to assist in locating directions, sundial navigation and map reading. A cream colored retro designed dial bearing the Bücker logo completes the design of the watch.

Virtually every other watch on earth tells time in a conventional 12 hour dial and the hour hand revolves around the dial once every 12 hours. In this new H3 Tactical Stealth Mission Watch, the hour hand only travels around the dial once every 24 hours! For pilots traveling day and night across many time zones, this design is extremely desirable. At a glance the pilot knows the time in the military 24 hour format.
Military personnel all also use the 24 hour time format to insure there are never any mistakes about the time for precision military operations. Likewise, this format is indispensable for people working under extreme conditions where it might be impossible to tell day from night, underground construction workers or miners, for example.
While only a very few of these 24 hour dial watches even exist, none has ever been made before with full Tritium Illumination. All 24 hour makers are tritium powered, as are the hour, minute and second hands. This means an amazing 27 tritium tubes are used to illuminate the watch dial.
The H3 Tactical Stealth Mission Watch is made entirely of surgical stainless steel. The crystal is virtually scratch proof sapphire glass. The Swiss Made Jeweled Quartz Movement is extremely accurate and durable. And the Watch is depth tested to 333 feet (100 meters) below sea level. All in all this is a great series of watches. Available in three different styles: All Stainless Steel Case and Bracelet, All PVD Case and Bracelet and a PVD model with a Rubber Dive Strap.

Production of this stunning pilot's watch is limited to just 500 watches worldwide. It comes in a one-of-a-kind red leather and black lacquer piano finish jewelry case and includes both a signature Torgoen Polyurethane strap and a fine padded and stitched leather strap.
In making this very special watch, Torgoen Swiss used the finest components available along with their expertise in pilot's watch design to craft this beautiful pilot's flight computer watch. The E6B Flight Computer Slide Rule Bezel is housed safely underneath the scratchproof sapphire glass crystal.
The case is solid stainless steel finished in black PVD and rose gold plating for a dramatic design. The crystal is virtually scratch proof sapphire glass. The four rose goldtone accent screws on the square case complete the design and add a richness and elegance unique to the watch.
Pilots often need a watch that will always display Universal Coordinated Time (also referred to as Zulu time). Many pilots prefer to have their watch display both their home time and their destination time, if it is in a different time zone. The T07 displays two time zones at a glance, one on the main watch face and the other in the analog watch subdial at the 6 o'clock position.
The T07 Limited Edition is a watch is a fantastic edition to any watch collection and a must have for the pilot/watch enthusiast. Torgoen Swiss makes a number of fine pilot's watches but this is truly the finest model they have ever produced.

The Ballistic is the latest in a line of Tritium Illuminated Watches from UZI. Tritium Illumination glows brightly for 25 years and never needs recharging.
Here's a video the folks at UZI made, having a little fun with the new watch. By the way, Campco is their American Distributor.
There are three secrets to the new UZI Ballistic watch that makes it so tough. First, the crystal is a virtually shatter proof polycarbonate glass. And the crystal is recessed, too.
Second, the movement is protected with an internal shock protection mechanism.
Finally, the case is an extra tough and thick stainless steel. The watch is also water resistant to 50 meters (165 feet).
You can get the full specifications about on the new Ballistic and see all three models at our Uzi Ballistic Time 4 Tritium Website. Check out our new, lower prices on all UZI models, too.
