Sophisticated Swiss timepieces in timeless design

Traser is a brand of MB-Microtec, a company founded in 1969 by Swiss inventor and watch enthusiast Oskar Thüler and based in the canton of Bern. The company became known in particular for the development of a special self-illuminating technology for tactical wristwatches of the U.S. Army, which eventually led to the founding of the Traser label in 1989. Traser’s timepieces, including models for pilots, are robust, hard-wearing and can be used with uncompromising reliability even in the most adverse conditions.

Traser has a wide range of professional sports watches, including the famous Traser Tritium chronometers. These are equipped with luminous tritium gas fibers in various colors, which give them excellent readability even in the deepest darkness. The light inserts used are up to 100 times brighter than other comparable products. Moreover, they are self-luminous and completely battery-independent, which means that they do not require external charging and continuously emit their luminosity without any further intervention.

The high quality of Traser watches is based on the careful selection of materials and the continuous monitoring of all processes.


Faithful companions for adventurers and professionals

With their timeless design as well as the extensive range of innovative functions, Traser’s wristwatches are equally appreciated for their first-class quality and reliability by the military, security forces, as well as aviators, scuba divers, mountaineers and other extreme sports enthusiasts. They are water resistant and can withstand diving depths of up to 300 meters, depending on the model. Many sports watches also feature additional functions, such as chronographs with various stop functions.

In addition, Traser also offers a range of classic watch models and heritage watches, which are aimed specifically at watch enthusiasts and collectors. No matter which model, timepieces from the house of Traser feature high-quality movements, resistant glasses as well as appealing straps made of stainless steel, silicone or nylon natoband. The aesthetic precision jewelry from Switzerland are faithful companions for adventurers, professionals and watch enthusiasts.
