All of our watches are made from 316L surgical grade stainless steel. This typically measures 200HV on the Vickers hardness scale, however after our proprietary hardening treatment is applied, we are able to achieve a hardness rating of almost 1200HV. With this additional protection against the typical scratches and swirls that otherwise occur all too often during the rigors of everyday life, you can wear our watches without worry, using them like the robust tools they’re intended to be.

Cut from synthetic sapphire and measuring 9/10 on the Mohs hardness scale, the Commuter’s crystal is virtually impervious to scratches. Colloquially referred to as a “box style” crystal, its design is reminiscent of the plexiglass crystals that adorned watches from a bygone era. This particular sapphire crystal also boasts a thick layer of clear anti-reflective coating on the underside — eliminating glare for easy reading even under direct sunlight.

The somewhat minimalist dial is adorned with a striking yet subtle sunburst pattern that is expertly brushed into the base plate. The hour markers are meticulously filled with BGW9 Swiss Made Super-LumiNova and then delicately applied by hand with maximum precision. Models with a date window at the 6 hour position feature a distinctive polished frame which compliments the overall design of the dial.

The Commuter’s diamond-cut hands slope up on either side before taping off to a flat plane, creating a subtle visual effect that is pleasing even when not consciously registered. The strong luminescence of the BGW9 Swiss Made Super-LumiNova makes for easy reading even in dim light.

Understated yet robust, the Commuter sports a scratch-resistant case hewn from surgical-grade 316L hardened stainless steel. The aesthetics are enhanced by polished chamfers that separate radial brushed lugs and horizontally brushed sides, while the screw down crown ensures its 100 meters of water resistance. The case’s design is further elevated by the ever so slightly convex nature of the mid-case, with sides that bulge out just enough for the discerning wearer to appreciate how every detail has been meticulously considered.

The fixed bezel features two complimentary brushing techniques. Radial brushing on the top gently teases the eye, while the polished sides offer a distinctive finish that matches the overall refined aesthetic.

The crown screws down snugly into the side of the case, upholding the integrity of the 100 meter depth rating. A high-polished chamfer separates the coin-edged portion from the TRASKA logo on the outermost radial brushed surface.

Forged from 316L stainless steel and tapering from 20mm to 16mm, the bracelet’s solid and fully articulating links echo designs from the Swiss bracelet purveyor Gay Frères. Made with a rigorous lifestyle in mind, the robust bracelet has undergone the same proprietary hardening process as the case. Precisely machined from stainless steel, the buckle exhibits polished chamfers on either side. The inside of the clasp is painstakingly hand polished with a perlage finish — because even the smallest of details matter. The buckle’s four micro-adjustments and the removable link’s large flat head screws allow the bracelet to be sized to your exact liking with ease.

Automatically wound by the motion of the wearer, the Japanese Made Miyota 9 series caliber oscillates at 28,800 beats per hour and will keep on ticking for decades. The no-date variants make use of the Miyota 9039 movement, while those with a date complication at the 6 hour position utilize the 9019. A 24 jeweled, hand-windable movement with hacking and a date complication, the Miyota 9 series was introduced by the Japanese firm as an alternative to the Swiss Made ETA-2824. One could argue that the high-beat 9019 caliber is actually technologically superior to its Swiss counterpart — thanks to its 42 hour power reserve and slimmer profile.

All of our movements are regulated in four positions for enhanced timekeeping tolerances. This process involves manually adjusting the length of the mechanical movement’s hairspring, fine-tuning it to keep even better time than what their manufacturer advertises. After regulation in four positions, the 9 series will typically run between -10 to +20 seconds a day.

Our genuine leather travel case stays true to the utilitarian nature of the TRASKA brand. We value form; but not at the expense of function. Even when traveling light is a necessity, this leather pouch is small enough to go with you and ensure the safety of your timepiece. This isn’t packaging that will gather dust in the closet — it’s an elegant yet practical accessory you’ll want to travel with wherever you go.
