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.
Traser H3 Watches
Traser H3 is a Swiss Company also known as mb-microtec AG. They are mainly known for the manufacture of Swiss watches that are made using tritium to illuminate the hands and the numerals when the watch is viewed in the dark.
Traser, mb-microtec's watch brand.
Established in 1918 by two chemists, Walter Merz and Albert Benteli, Merz & Benteli AG had split to create mb-microtec AG in 1968.
Before then, the production of luminous colors were mainly supplied to Swiss watch making industries, and even to renowned scientists such as Marie Curie.
The usage of tritium rather than glow paint was put into consideration for producing military-certified watches under the subsidy traser, and various other military components under glotac.
