The P68 Pathfinder Has Arrived!

Traser is a very Swiss and very European oriented watch designer and manufacturer.  They promoted the grand unveiling of their new top-of-the-line flagship watch, the Swiss P68 Pathfinder Automatic aggressively in Europe.  Our previous blog post has the teaser video that never really showed the watch but gave hints to its functions and appearance.  The "Grand Reveal" date was yesterday, September 29, 2017.

Traser elected not to pre-distribute the watches to dealers here in America for fear one of them might post pictures or, even worse, sell a watch before the reveal date.  Traser is great company, but they lack the iron clad control over their dealers that Apple has.  The watches have now been shipped to the U.S. and will be available here for sale in the next few days.

With each new release Traser has shown both its ability and its willingness to take on the premier Swiss manufacturers like Ball Watch and Luminox.  Their watch equal and, in our opinion, often exceed the more well known prestige brands.  Traser does have an advantage. They are the world's only manufacturer of Tritium Gas Tube Illumination.  Others must buy the tubes from Traser.  And Traser keeps the newest technology for themselves for a year or more.

The P68 Pathfinder is a Swiss Automatic and is entirely Swiss Made.  The movement has a date function with the date window at the 3 o'clock position on the dial.

Traser has added an "under the sapphire glass" compass bezel controlled by an external crown at the 8 o'clock position.  A watch compass bezel allows the wearer to use the relative position of the sun compared to the hour hand to determine direction.  The technology here is, quite literally, as old as time.  While other watches have had compass bezels, Traser has embraced the technology here and provides detailed and illustrated instructions on its use with the watch.

As always with Traser the key is the use of multiple illumination technologies to create a watch that at dusk and through the night makes the watch a joy to see and to own. Tritium tubes are used on all three hands and on all 12 hour indices for permanent illumination.  They then add Super Luminova paint to the numbers and the compass bezel to create a wonderland of illumination.  You can see the result at the top of this page.

The Traser P68 Pathfinder Automatic is available for order now on the Time 4 Tritium Website which also has a wealth of additional pictures in information about the watch, including fiull specifications.  Be sure to check out the slideshow on the Time 4 Tritium home page.  It takes a few seconds to load but is well worth the await!

Introducing the All New Time 4 Tritium Website

We are very pleased to introduce our entirely redesigned Time 4 Tritium Website.  This represents a gigantic step forward in both website design and in content presentation.  We believe this is the premier site for both buying and learning about watches.

First, and most importantly the website is now completely mobile friendly and will resize automatically for your tablet or your mobile phone without ANY LOSS OF CONTENT.  Too many website penalize users when they convert to a mobile phone size, reducing or actually eliminating content available on the browser size site.  Not on piece of information is lost.

Content is king on the new Time 4 Tritium Website.  Because we are actual dealers and we stock and ship every item shown on our website we actually have seen, handled, explored and tested every watch.  Many of our competitors have never seen a watch, they are conduits for outside manufacturers to ship.  They don't know dimensions, features or even how the watch works.  We are actual watchmakers and know the product inside and out.

All that information makes its way onto the website.  The information is detailed and complete.  Plus we back it all up with our TOLL FREE NUMBER 1 (888) 243-6329 so you can ask even more questions without any pressure to buy.

Click on this link to see a great example of the really indepth information we provide:  Traser P66 Red Alert Tactical Military Watch Now try this experiment: Do a Google Search and locate any other dealer and look at their website.  Most don't even realize the watch uses rare RED TRITIUM. They don't know the specs, they have no idea what tritium is our how it works.

The new Time 4 Tritium Website has a much larger selection of watches than ever before.  Yet it's easy to navigate and fun to explore.  And there is much more to come. 

Finally, we would welcome your feedback, ideas and suggestions.  Please add a comment to this blog. We look forward to hearing from you.

Tritium Lights No bigger than the Size of a Hair

The world leader in the technology of Tritium illumination, H3 mb-microtec, the Swiss parent of Traser watches, has now emerged as a leading Swiss technology designer with ground breaking, innovative, highly functional designs. Because H3 mb-microtec is the world's only designer and manufacturer of tritium gas tubes, their watch division, Traser, gets the new technology first.

This new technology has been named Trigalight® HairLight Tritium because it is so incredibly thin. The outer glass tubes are about the thickness of five human hairs, and the actual inner glowing gas is only about the thickness of a single hair!

So far Traser has introduced two models that use the HairLight Tritium tubes and both are pictured at the top of the page. First is the Traser T5 Aurora Chronograph that uses the super thin Hairlight to illuminate the chronograph subdials.  A custom sapphire crystal provides perfect visibility of the detail possible with the new tubes.  There has never been a watch this stunning after dark!

The second watch to employ this technology is the Traser Aurora GMT Pilot's Watch. The P59 Aurora GMT is a true dual time zone, 24 hour timepiece with a fourth hand to easily indicate 24 hour time for any time zone you desire. The dial is crisp and easy to read in daylight and is great looking, too. Once again the key to this design is the super thin HairLight Tritium that allows illumination of not only the 24 hour hand, but also all 24 hour markers. There is Tritium Illumination on all 12 hour markers and on ALL HANDS.
