Traser Big Date Chronograph

The Watch Guys are proud to present the Tracer Big Date Chrongraph Series.  This is not the newest series available from Traser but it is one of my favorites.  The BIG DATE CHRONOGRAPH has the classic styling of the legendary Traser H3 Military Watches, but with the newest Swiss Made, Jeweled, Chronograph quartz movement. As you can see in the photograph above, the new Chronographs feature full dial tritium illumination from H3 mb-microtec.  This means that you can easily see the watch day and night in any condition.  These watches are available in four different options, two in lightweight Titanium and two in Black PVD.  Each with either a traditional Green Tritium or the newer Blue Tritium variants. 

Worldwide, people who know about tritium illumination watches know that the Traser is the "real deal." Traser H3 by mb-microtec was the first military timepiece ever to be equipped with the patented tritium H3 permanent light technology. And the H3 mb-microtec models were actually the first to be issued to the men and women of the US Armed Forces. Today they are still the world standard and are the watches made for NATO armed forces.

The Big Date Chronograph Series is one of the best watches available from Traser today.  Solid Stainless Steel (or Titanium) construction, 100 Meters Water Resistant and a Sapphire Crystal are just some of the amazing features this watch has to offer.  It's a beautiful and well made timepiece that anyone would be proud to own and it won't break the bank.  One of my favorite features of the Traser brand is that they are reasonably priced.  And by comparison with other brands they are practically a steal.  You don't have to sacrifice any quality and can save hundreds of dollars!

For more information, specs and pricing please visit one of our sites: Gem of the Day, Time 4 Tritium or Topflight Watches or call me Toll Free at 1-888-243-6329.  Just ask for Zak.

Why Own a Tritium Watch?


Here at The Watch Guys we love watches.  But, as some of you may have noticed, we are particularly fond of Tritium illuminated watches.  Why is that?  Well it's because Tritium Illuminated Watches are just simply the best illuminated watches available today.  So "What is Tritium illumination?" I hear you say.  You may have heard some people talk about them and not know exactly what it is or how it works.  Let's take a look and see.  I am going to break down what Tritium illumination is, how it works and what it all means so next time you hear us talking about how much we love it, you'll understand why.

What is Tritium illumination?

Lets start off with what Tritium illumination is.  Tritium illumination is what is called a micro-gas technology.  Tritium illumination is not a paint but actually small glass tubes filled with a phosphorescent and Tritium in it's gaseous form.  The Tritium gas reacts with the phosphorescent and creates a continuous glow 24-hours a day / 7-days a week for about 25 years.  It is a chemical reaction that is very stable, safe and consistent.  From there the Tritium gas vials are inserted on the hands and dial of the watch. The new generation of Tritium watches are the easiest in the world to read in low light conditions and even in total darkness. The light emitting devices require no battery power or any other form of charging, and never needs servicing or maintenance.

Why is Tritium Superior?

So now that we know what it is and how it works we have to ask why it is superior to other forms of illumination?  The benefits of Tritium as a watch illumination system is simple.  Making watches visible in low light or at night has been a perplexing problem since wrist timepieces were first invented. While watchmakers thought the problem was solved 100 years ago with the use of radium, it quickly proved too radio active and dangerous. Radium was outlawed for use in watches over 50 years ago. Luminous substitutes found in 95% of watches sold today require the use of an external light source to recharge the illumination. Many owners complain that the luminous paint works poorly and fades quickly, often in just minutes of darkness. Another alternative, using electric back lighting, requires the owner to press a button and quickly uses up battery power. It often fails to light the dial evenly and has proven unreliable.

With Tritium you have a constant source of light that requires no additional power source.  No buttons to push and no fading as the night draws on.  The Tritium stays light day in and day out for up to 25 years.  All you have to do is take a quick glance at the watch and you know exactly what time it is.  No fuss, no muss.  Tritium provides a clean, easy to read light source that stays perfectly visible all night long.  No other illumination can claim those benefits.  Starting to see why we are such big fans around here?

Because of the increasing popularity of Tritium illumination, several brands now offer this feature. Time4Tritium, Gem of the Day and Topflight Watches are proud to offer the following brands: UZI Watches, Smith and Wesson Watches, Traser Watches, H3 Tactical Watches, Luminox Watches and Mondaine Watches. All these brands are equipped with a tritium gas tubes to illuminate the dial.

Tutima Grand Classic Black Chronograph PR

Tutima Grand Classic Black Chronograph PR

The new Tutima Grand Classic Black Chronograph Power Reserve with the Red Dial is one of the most dramatic timepieces ever created. It will be noticed immediately and will set you apart with its stunning design. It is one of the most handsome watches we've ever offered from any designer or manufacturer. A watch this extraordinary can only come from the designers of Tutima in Glashette, Germany.

The exhibition Back of the 781 Series of Grand Classic Chronographs The new Grand Classic Black Chronograph PR can cope with anything that comes its way, thanks to the use of cutting-edge technology. The case and bracelet have a black coating which is largely resistant to shocks and scratches using a unique process designed by Tutima's German engineers. To begin with, the stainless steel itself undergoes a special process to harden it far below the surface layer. It is then given a coating of ultra-hard PVD coating (physical vapor deposition) in midnight black as extra protection.

The dial is also painstakingly designed to provide a clarity of the instrumentation including a rare power reserve display designed to make this chronograph the perfect companion for turbulent times. The Power Reserve instantly shown the remaining power stored in the mainspring. If the power reserve should start to dwindle, all it takes is a few shakes of the wrist and the Automatic Swiss selfwinding Valjoux 7750 movement produces new energy.

Gem of the Day is pleased to offer this and many other Tutima Grand Classic models. Call us TOLL FREE at 1 (888) 243-6329 to discuss our very competitive prices and all the options in the extensive Grand Classic Collection.

Wenger Braille Watch

Wenger TerraGraph Braille 

This watch has actually been around for a few years now but it recently came to my attention that we have never done a blog entry on it.  And to make things even more interesting, this watch is also somewhat unique in the watch world today.  For people who are vision impaired, there are only a few option available, most of which are really cheesy talking watches.  These are usually cheaply made, loud and embarrassing.  Assuming you want to know what time it is in a public setting you can't help but call attention to yourself.  But what other options are there?  To be honest, not many.

Fortunately, there is the braille watch from Wenger.  The Wenger TerraGraph Braille Watch is a nicely made Swiss watch that won't break the bank and allows for a much more discrete way to tell time.  The pop-up crystal allows the user to tell time anywhere very easily and without making a scene.  The classic analog design is attractive and well suited for any occasion.  

This classic braille watch combines the traditional watch design with a cover/crystal that can be opened using a push button to reveal a braille raised dot dial and sturdy reinforced hands. The Wenger Braille Watch, model #72345, is one of the very finest watches made by this extraordinary Swiss manufacturer. Wenger uses the skill developed as a maker of precision quality instruments to develop a strong, durable, fully functional braille watch. As the picture up top indicates, the crystal pops up to allow the blind wearer to "read the dial" with the touch of the fingers. For the sight impaired who have limited vision, the dial has large, black, easy-to-read numerals and heavy black hands.

The watch case is made entirely of fine Swiss Surgical Grade Stainless Steel and the crystal is scratch resistant hardened mineral glass. This watch is also entirely SWISS MADE to the highest standards. The Swiss quartz movement has jewels at all precision wear points, assuring astounding accuracy.

The attention to detail is exceptional, as you would expect from the makers of the "Genuine Swiss Army Knife"and makes this watch stand out above the rest.  For more information and ordering info please visit our store: Gem of the Day.  There you can find more information, detailed features about the watch and pricing information.

New Automatics from Traser

Today I bring you some very exciting news from the Tritium watch world.  Traser, one of the worlds leading Tritium watch manufacturers, is bring out two brand new automatic watches with full tritium illumination.  The first model is based off of the incredibly good looking Aviator series and the other is from the P6600 military camp.  Both watches feature Swiss ETA movements.  The GMT Aviator features the ETA 2893-2 and the P6600 Automatic features the ETA 2824-2 EL.  Both watches are extremely well made and have the amazingly bright tritium illumination we have all come to know and love.  I love to see both of these series expanding their selection.  Traser truly is one of the very best watch manufacturers out there and these two series are some of my favorites. 

BÜcker Automatic UTC
The Aviator collect is quite frankly one of the best looking watches being made today.  In a world fully of military type watches the Master collection is a breath of fresh air.  It is a series equally at home in the office, on the golf course or out in the field.  It is still tough enough to wear anywhere you want to take it and still one of the best looking watches around.  On top of that, this watch also features a 4-hand GMT that is also Tritium illuminated.  This allows you to use the GMT function (UTC/ZULU or just as a second time zone) anytime, day or night.  In the Tritium watch world, very few watches have have an illuminated 4th hand setting this watch even further apart from the pack.  This is a truly unique timepiece, not to be passed up by the true collector.

BÜcker Automatic UTC - Night View

On the flip side you have the P6600 Military collection.  And just as I noted earlier, this is yet another military style watch in a sea of military watches.  So what makes this collection so special?  Well innovation for one thing.  A truly unique double case design fuses the strength of stainless steel with the lightweight properties of the composite cases.  This allows for a screw down crow and case back but keeps the watch at a comfortable weight.  And that is just the start.  This watch also features a genuine Sapphire Crystal and 300 Meters Water Resistance!  That's right, this is a true hard core divers watch capably of going anywhere and doing anything you can throw at it.  Even after all of that, this is also one of the best looking military watches available today.  I mean just look at it (pictured below)!  Nuff said.

P6600 Automatic

Both of these watches are new and have very limited availability.  Please call us for pricing and available quantities.  Short waiting periods may be required.  Our Toll Free number is 1-888-243-6329.

Wenger GST Diver

There is no denying that the all new Wenger GST Diver has startling good looks. The all black design is stunning and the attention to detail is top notch. From the Black PVD Stainless Steel Case, to the polished Black patterned dial, to the rugged and heavy all black rubber dive strap, this is one great looking watch. It's the little things that make the difference in a watch like this. Like the multi-level patterned dial and just the right amount of orange accents to set it all off with a prefect balance of good looks and supreme readability.

But it's not just good looks that makes the Wenger GST Diver one of our most highly recommended professional quality dive watches. The watch is made to the toughest Swiss standards for all dive watches. The case is 316 Grade Surgical Stainless Steel. It has both a screw down case back and a screw down crown. The crystal is virtually scratchproof Sapphire glass and the watch is depth tested to 300 meters or 1,000 feet below seal level!

The high contrast white hands and markers make this one of the easiest to read watches we've ever offered, even deep below the surface. The unidirectional diver's bezel has orange markers for measuring air tank reserves and the watch features a date function with the window at the 6 o'clock position.

This watch really is stunning to look at. You really need to see it in person to understand what I am getting at with this blog entry. Sometimes a watch ends up being more than just the sum of its parts. This is one of those times. This is really a great watch at a very affordable price. If you get a chance I highly recommend you check one out in person.

Mondaine Chronograph with Night Vision

A bold yet sleek statement, the Mondaine Official Swiss Railways Watch Sport II has the classic Mondaine award winning design with the highest technology Swiss Chronograph (stopwatch) movement and Tritium Night View Illumination. It is the perfect combination of style and functionality.

The Sport II has a 42 millimeter brushed stainless steel case highlighted with a black PVD fixed bezel that is decorated with six polished stainless steel screws. It is available in two dial choices, either black or white with opposite color hands and the signature red stopwatch sweep second hand. The continuous sweep second subdial and the 30 minute elapse time subdial also have red hands.

As you can see, the hands and dial have tritium illumination for perfect night illumination. In addition the watch features a large double window date display that is easy to read at a glance, yet adds to the classic design motif.

The classic simple and straightforward design of Mondaine Watches is considered a work of great modern art. Mondaine Watches are collected by museums throughout the world. For example, Mondaine is the official watch of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

The simple design, the unmistakable easy-to-read face, distinctive hands and the famous red seconds hand have made the Mondaine collection successful the world over. In 1944, Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss Engineer and Designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways, created a clock, which has become known as the Official Swiss Railways Clock. It is amazing just how long this design has endured and now it appears to take a place in the eternal hall of fame along side other well known design icons such as the Coca-Cola bottle, the Mercedes star, the Toblerone packaging, or the design of the US dollar bill.

Traser P6600 Shadow

Well, Traser has finally entered the "Blackout" market with entry of the P6600 Shadow. Now, up until this point, Luminox has been running away with the "Blackout" segment of the market. In fact, the Original Blackout from Luminox has sold so well that there is now a whole collection of watches by Luminox that feature the "Blackout" treatment. And to top it off, several of these watches are the best selling Luminox watches ever. So, it only makes sense for Traser to answer back with a "Blackout" watch of their own. Enter the P6600 Shadow...

Based off of the P6600 Mil-G platform this is maybe the best Blackout watch to come along yet. Although Traser's Blackout has arrived a year later than Luminox and many other Swiss brands in Blackout Design, they lead the field in making their Blackout to meet and exceed the new, tougher, MIL-W-46374F Specifications. The Traser P6600 Shadow is the leader in Military Stealth Watches.

Traser cut no corners in the manufacture of these watches. The P6600 Shadow uses the latest dual case design that basically places the precision Swiss movement inside two cases for the ultimate in shock and water protection. The watch utilizes a K1 Grade Mineral Glass Crystal for improved strength and durability and a carbon fiber unidirectional elapse time bezels with a tritium Traser dot at the 60 minute mark. The new Traser P6600 Shadow also utilizes full tritium illumination on the dial of the watch. This is the watch to wear when your very safety depends on having the precise time at a glance.

All of this in an all new slicker Blacked-Out version. The combination of style, durability, military precision and quality parts make this one of the best watches available today. The price makes it one of the best buys out there today. Combining all of the strengths and affordable price makes this the first MUST HAVE watch of 2012.

Please feel free to visit our sites for more pictures, specs and pricing information. You can see mare and shop with us at the following sites: Gem of the Day, TopFlight Watches and Time 4 Tritium.
