The Luminox 3001.BO Original Navy Seal (Left) and the Traser P6508.900.H4.01 Shadow (Right) are watches made by two different companies but with so much in common. It’s quite obvious that Luminox and Traser had the same goal in mind when designing these two timepieces. They wanted a sleek, stealthy, mostly black and affordable watch. Both watches feature a 43mm plastic carbon fiber reinforced case, quartz movement, mineral hardened glass, rubber strap, rotating bezel, date on watch dial and tritium illumination technology.

Most of the differences in these two watches are found in subtle details within the case and dial design. However, one major difference that is noticeable immediately is the strap. The strap featured on the Traser Shadow is significantly thicker than the that of the Luminox Original Navy Seal. In fact, Luminox has used their thinnest strap available on this Blackout model. Compare the two and anyone would agree that the Traser strap seems as though it could handle a little more wear.

Traser took the ever popular styling of the Type 6 Mil-G and the Traser Shadow series and upped the ante a bit with the Traser Auto Pro. This watch features the standard, easy to read white markings and numerals on top of a black face and dial. Traser has taken the time to upgrade a few components of this watch to make it stand out from its predecessors. The Auto Pro comes with an Automatic Movement as well as Sapphire crystal; making the extra cost quite worth it. The Auto Pro can be purchased with a black rubber strap or black nylon NATO style strap.

Trigalight technology is used in both Luminox and Traser watches. This technology is one of the key aspects in the reliability and functionality of these products. The video below, created by MB-Microtec, will hopefully provide some insight as to how and why this technology works.

Innovative Swiss Precision Technology: The ability to manufacture the self-illuminating light technology called trigalight® is the result of decades of research and development work in the field of radio luminescence. The company mb-microtec ag is the originator and worldwide only manufacturer of watch lights based on this technology. trigalight® are independent of a battery or charging by sunlight, maintenance-free and have a guaranteed lifespan of at least 10 years.

Functional principle: trigalight® are small, airtight sealed glass tubes coated on the inside with a luminous substance. The coating is “fired” with electrons emitted by the tritium gas which causes the layer to light up (when such an electron hits the powder layer a fraction of its kinetic energy is transformed into light). With a trigalight®, the necessary electrons are created through the radioactive disintegration of tritium (an isotope of hydrogen).

Tritium: trigalight® are filled with tritium gas. Tritium is unstable and disintegrates whilst sending out beta radiation (electrons) with a half-life time of 12.3 years to helium. The electron is unable to penetrate the human skin and can be stopped without any problems by a sheet of paper. A traser® H3 watch contains 15 to 20 trigalight® for a total of no more than 1 GBq (Giga Bequerel) of tritium.

If you’re a fan of the Luminox Navy Seal series, you’ll love the Traser Nautic. The P6504 Nautic appears in a fresh blue-yellow design and the trigalight® directly arranged on the dial. The countdown bezel offers to any observer of a regatta a simplified feature that sets an approximate starting time. The bezel itself stays unidirectional rotating to avoid a wrong setting.

The traser H3 Aviator Jungmeister lives up to its role model, the Bu 133 Jungmeister, a unique aeroplane in the upper echelons of numerous aerobatics teams, in every aspect. Based on the aircraft instruments of this single-motored, one-seater double-decker, the steel frame of this watch visibly houses the Ronda 5010.B quartz movement with central stop-seconds and 30-minute/12-hour counter in the lower half of the dial. Time-stopping was key when flying Bucker aircraft, both for navigation and for calculating fuel consumption. Of course, flawless instrument readability was also essential here – which is certainly catered for with our unique trigalight lighting.
