Traser’s New Red Combat Watch

Traser red combatThe ink had not yet dried on the blueprints for Traser’s new Red Combat model, set for intros at SHOT Show 2014.  When I asked the Traser booth rep if I could see the new watch, she smiled and pointed to a color flyer in a plastic frame.  None here in Vegas.  Dang.

Red Combat is a variation of Traser’s 6600 series.  For an MSRP of $440, you get a Ronda caliber 517 day/date analog quartz movement, sapphire crystal, and Traser’s trigalight tritium tubes.  You choose:  NATO strap or rubber strap.

The 45mm case is made of black glass-reinforced resin with a steel inner container for the movement.  The watch is water resistant to 660 feet.  Red’s bezel is black PVD-coated steel.  Its function is bidirectional. Traser Red CombatTraser Red Combat night

Trigalight tubes are blue for all three hands, the bezel indicator, and hour marks one through 11.  The 12 o’clock marker is red.  The Traser tritium tubes have a nice clean brightness.  I have a Traser H3 Classic that I absolutely love in the absence of light.

There is no release date yet in the US, but it appears they are currently selling in Europe.
