Traser H3 timepieces are mostly known as top military watches. They are made in Switzerland and the history of the company dates back to the 1970s. One of Traser H3’s most unique features is the utilization of Gaseous Titanium Light Sources (GTLS).
All traser H3 watches feature trigalight (tritium gaseous light) illumination technology. This highly specialised technology was developed by mb-microtec where a guaranteed light source was needed for safe operations in all hazardous environments and conditions.
Trigalight are tiny glass vials that are laser sealed, internally coated with phosphorescent material and filled with a minute amount of tritium gas. Electrons emitted from the gas excite the phosphor to create the permanent light. They do not require any external power source or require recharging in order to glow continuously for up to 20 years.
