At Baselworld 2017, Swiss Traser introduced a “trendy” tactical watch with the Traser P67 Officer Pro Gun Metal in bright Lime and Orange lumed dials. The delicate Traser fake watches are not terribly expensive and show a more lighthearted side of the brand which is mostly known for being the in-house brand of MB-Microtec who produces glowing tritium gas tubes.
I think there is an appeal to wearing “tactical” watches without always wanting to look too tactical. Of course, not everyone will be into lime green or bright orange on their wrist all the time, but at least for a fun-looking timepiece such as this you don’t need to spend more than $500.
The Traser replica watches with Swiss quartz movements already had black-dialed versions with lime green or orange hour numerals. What is different for 2017 is that the collection now includes these models with dials that are entirely lime green or orange. When mixed with the gun metal-style PVD-coated steel cases and the matching straps, it makes for a neat look. I have a soft spot for functional watches that are more about being a bit loud in style, so I do appreciate stuff like this.
Traser copy watches with black hour markers are 42mm wide with AR-coated sapphire crystal and are water-resistant to 100 meters. The straps are orange or green, and Traser makes a point to indicate that they are “Italian-made natural caoutchouc” straps. For a more discreet look, Traser also sells NATO-style straps in black, with a lime green or orange stripe down the middle.
The dials combine Taser’s typical use of Tritium gas tubes, with Super-LumiNova for darkness illumination. There are gas tubes in each of the three hands, as well as the hour markers. Also note the two gas tubes in the logo under 12 o’clock. Traser says these are used to help orient the position of the dial in the dark so that you can more easily read the time. The rest of the dial is painted in green or orange Super-LumiNova.
