True Story from J.Cachia, MaltaThese things are built like a tank and I love them. I have just replaced the battery after about 5 years. Made sure to pressure test it professionally and even got the pressure certificate for it. I am also a Licenced Target/Tactical shooter and would never go to the range without my H3. Somehow I feel I shoot better with it. Not to mention it looks darn good with a gun. My wife makes fun of me cause I go to bed with it on.
There are loads out there, but my next one WILL be a Black Chrono BD Pro with blue illumination.
P.S. it also looks nice in the dark at the cinema....
True Story from Matthew D., AustraliaI have been a proud owner of a H3 P5900 Type 3 for eight years.
It has tolerated incredibly harsh conditions on a daily basis. As an underground miner the watch has not only taken knock after knock on solid rocks; been subjected to 12 hours in temperatures of 40 ? 50 degrees Celsius and humidity?s of 98 %; but its shining light in the utter darkness has told me day after day, after 12 hours underground ? when it is firing time and time to go home.
I have been so pleased with its time keeping ability and the continued performance of the trigalights.
True Story by Roman G.Keeping watch with my Traser Code Blue. Day or night it's always in service, I don't have to take a second look as its always visible. The tritium on the second hand puts this watch above the rest. When it comes to taking a pulse to watching the time I can always count on my every day watch.
True Story by Justin M.I own this beautiful Traser Basic White and a Traser Commander 100. My Basic White is by far my favorite, especially after giving it a black alligator leather band which suits it beautifully.
I have owned both of these watches for about 6 months now, however, sadly I had to part with my favorite watch after my motorcycle accident on my way to work in Washington, DC, on i395. I was riding about 50 mph when an Ford F350 Ram collided with my left side, causing me to lose control of my bike and then fly out, hands and face first, onto the concrete highway. Luckily my goggles and half helmet did their job as my face is mostly untouched, although I broke my skull in numerous places on the left side of my face. When I braced my fall with my hands out, the leather watch strap must have been ripped apart, allowing my favorite watch to part from my wrist.
Two weeks have passed now and I am recovering well after a miraculous survival of a near fatal motorcycle accident. I have been driven past the accident site and searched for any sign of my watch, sadly with no luck. After losing my Harley, my favorite pair of jeans, my favorite leather jacket and boots, one of my largest upsets is losing my favorite watch, as I've worn it nearly everyday since I bought it, and received countless compliments from friends and colleagues. Although my history with this watch was short, it will be missed greatly. Traser is my watch company, and will continue to be for years to come.
True Story by Paul H.I?m a Firefighter in Melbourne, Australia, the P6600 is my work watch and I love it. It has seen me through numerous different fires and various rescues without a problem. It has copped a few good hits but apart from some scratches is still going strong. I chose this watch over the many others I looked at because it is easy to read in low light situations, tough and looks good too.
True Story by Pascal van ErpAs a marine conservation diver working on lost and derelict fishing gear removal you must trust on your equipment no matter what situation you are in. Dealing with huge fishing nets, ropes, nearly invisible lines, weights, cages and dumped trash in open water at depths from 20m ? 65m the visibility can be less than zero in an blink of an eye. Darkness due sand, mud, rust and silt can make my work very uncomfortable. I choose traser� H3 watches for years because of the no-nonsense vision, reliability and visibility aspects. Both above and below the surface traser� H3 simply never let me down.
My everyday watch for years is a traser� H3 P6504 Black Storm Pro with NATO strap which is simply bullet proof in my opinion. Now, since the launch of the new traser� H3 Diver Automatic Blue Long Life, I?ve now added this fine piece of equipment to my diving gear. It is resistant to deep water operations, it is very durable and has a great visibility through the large bezel. The long life battery completes the configuration. As a diver you cannot accept lower quality, I simply love it.
Keep up the great work traser� H3!

True Story by C. WhiteHaving brought my "traser H3" back in March 2003. It's served me loyally & accurately over the years in all manner of environments. From high altitude sky diving, to the Humid Jungles of Belize to the extreme heat & dust of Afghanistan. Wanting no more than a rinse under a tap & just two battery replacements it's continued to be as reliable as the day I purchased it. I think the only area of attention needed in the future is one or two new pins for the strap, but after the conditions this watch has seen I can forgive it for that!
I remain delighted that I chose 'traser H3 watches' & would recommend to anyone. Many thanks.

True story by Scott Brady, Journalist Overland JournalAs I mentioned to Barry from mb-microtec USA at the Outdoor Retailer show, I had not worn a watch for nearly a decade, mostly because I had not found one durable enough, yet understated for third-world travel.
Jonathan Hanson, my partner in Overland Journal and our Executive Editor received a sample traser H3, which he suggested I try on my trip to the Darien Gap in Panama. The trip was 9,000 miles, crossing nine borders and traveling in some of the most remote and rugged jungle conditions in the world. We explored unexcavated Maya ruins and traveled to the Southernmost point in North America, Punta Mariato.
Throughout the trip I continued to wear the traser H3, and it is still on my wrist as I write this email. Thank you for making a high-quality, comfortable and easy to read (day/night) adventure timepiece.

True Story by M. CicaleBecause she relies on it to time herself for sunbathing, and I keep telling her you have your own watch; and she says mine is better. And I can't tell you how many times I've gone swimming with it and forgotten to take off, and she would get upset about it for fear of breaking it.......
and a couple of times dropped it in the sand....... but it kept on ticking. I have 2 of them; one that is 8-10 years old, that I had rebuilt cosmetically and the latest one that is about 2-3 years old.
When we're out with friends late at night I'm the only one they ask me about the time ( and there are times when they want to look at it to see it glow), because my Traser H3 is the only one that glows bright enough to read. Traser; I love them and I trust them.
True Story by Bruce RayA reliable watch for all seasons and conditions, it just keeps going. Ship life is constant. Assisting the ship's crew on bridge watch to keep a 4000 tonne, 106 metre ship steaming through the most unforgiving oceans of the world full of hazards such as icebergs, the Traser stands on its own as a solid timekeeper.
True Story by Peter ToddThe dive is not as colorful as the Great Barrier Reef further north but it makes up for it with the stark and spectacular twin rocks that rise out of the sea floor and the marine life.
This day the weather was clear and the visibility was all the way to the bottom, about 40 meters. The guide and I dived to a ledge about 15 meters down and we were looking down on 8 Grey Nurse Sharks lined up on the bottom in two by two formation. Now, Grey nurse aren't supposed to be a problem for humans but they are mean looking animals.
The guide headed off and went into a double ended tunnel, I followed and just before I entered glanced behind and there was the biggest Grey Nurse I'd ever seen sitting right behind me, seemingly ready to pounce. The guide had disappeared and I could do nothing so I entered the cave. Just as I got in my fin caught on the roof, I thought the bloody thing had grabbed me. I lifted my head,banged it on the roof, through my arm back and up and they hit rock, hard. I realized what had really happened and my next thoughts were 1. what's that green stuff coming out of my hand and arm and 2. bet that broke the watch. Well, of course, the green stuff was only blood(divers will know blood looks green at depth) and the watch was fine, not even a scratch.
The rest of the dive went without incidence and the blood didn't seem to excite the sharks too much.
True Story by Ivan KristoffThanks to my research on the best available technologies, that can guarantee visibility at the dark for a long duration, I have the solution to the quest for the perfect, light and reliable watch that can serve me for a long time. Therefore, I am very happy to present you to the winner of the completion in the reliable timekeeping ? The traser® H3 P 6502 Long Life Swiss made watch.
When you are working on ropes a few hundred feet off the ground, you end up hanging on your life lines or the top of the skyscrapers. Up there in the air,I can't waste precious time to search for the illumination button on my watch to show me the time. I want it right away, especially, when I plan my time and have to regularly check if I am on schedule with the different tasks.
I am a collector of limited edition Swiss made watches. I know what a good watch is and I know the pain, when I scratch it. That is why I was looking for a light and soft edge bezel like the Carbon fiber on the traser® H3 P 6502 Long Life. The textile bracelet is close to the material of the climbing slings, the natural green color, so I feel it as part of my surrounding environment. It is sleek and when I moved the closing strap to the 6 o'clock position, I feel it as the most comfortable bracelet for everyday use. But this is still not the best thing about my little favorite watch. The unidirectional rotating dual time zone bezel shows me the right time to call my friends and team members, around the globe.
This combination of easy maintenance (quartz movement with lithium battery), light weight and nature friendly colours, is the perfect watch for my type of work. When I do Nature photography and I want to blend with the surrounding terrain, I appreciate most the uniqueness of this professional piece of watch craft. I know I have made the right choice by choosing the traser® H3 P 6502 Long Life for work at height. The commercial liability of falling heavy objects from the exterior of high-rise buildings is too high. That is why my company Eiger Rope Access Work Inc. has strict standards on safety and choose the traser® H3 P 6502 Long Life as a standard issue watch for our Highrise Emergency Aerial Response Team.
True Story from James W. Brown - ParamedicAfter destroying yet another watch while on an assignment, I set out to find a more suitable replacement. The watch needed to be shock resistant, to deal with the routine banging around that had broken so many others. It also needed to be corrosion and water resistant, to deal with the sea air and salt water in my area. And it also needed some form of illumination, because on tactical assignments one often needs to know the exact time but cannot turn on a flashlight or otherwise breach noise and light discipline. However, when wearing medical gloves contaminated with blood and who-knows-what-else, it is a rather poor idea to press buttons on a watch that you plan on wearing home later. My search therefore brought me to the Traser H3 watches, which provide hands-free illumination in tough, good-looking packages.
I chose the Nautic, because its rotating bezel contains a count-down, as opposed to a count-up, timer. When I call in a medevac helicopter and it provides me with an ETA, I use the Nautic?s timer to know exactly how much time I have left to complete my treatment before the ship is due.
The Nautic has proven to be an excellent, robust piece of equipment that helps me do my job more effectively.
