Seafarer Charcoal Black

Sale price$660.00 USD

Performing as impeccably 150 meters under the sea as it would on dry land, the Seafarer packs modern tech within a vintage-inspired frame. An homage to the dual-crown dive watches of the ‘50s and ‘60s, this is history, re-engineered for the choppy waters of today.

All of our watches are made from 316L surgical-grade stainless steel. This typically measures 200HV on the Vickers hardness scale; however, after our signature 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 Seafarer’s crystal is virtually impervious to scratches. Colloquially referred to as a “box style” crystal, its design is reminiscent of the plexiglass crystals that graced 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 bidirectional rotating bezel found underneath the sapphire crystal functions as a minute timer — just rotate the 2 o'clock crown until the circular marker is aligned with the minute hand. As the minute hand advances, the circular pip remains in the same position and a quick glance reveals how many minutes have elapsed since the setting of the timer.

The Seafarer’s semi-matte dial draws inspiration from the no-nonsense utilitarian aesthetic found on iconic dive watches from the 50s and 60s. Thanks to three-dimensional indices hewn entirely from BGW9 SuperLumi-Nova, the hand-applied hour markers protrude proudly from the dial for both enhanced visual interest as well as superior luminescence in dark environments.

The diamond-cut hands are milled from a solid block of brass and then meticulously polished before being filled with the same Swiss Made BGW9 luminescent material used in the bezel and the dial's applied indices.

Water resistant to 150 meters and hewn from a solid block of 316L stainless steel, the Seafarer’s case is treated with TRASKA’s signature hardening process to enhance its resilience to scratches and scuffs. Polished chamfers delineate the transition from brushed to polished finishes, with visual interest further stimulated by the ever so slightly convex nature of the mirror polished mid-case.

Complimentary brushing techniques work in harmony to give the fixed stainless steel bezel an even balance of splendor and restraint. While the upper half of the highly polished bezel slopes down gently, the lower portion drops off in a vertical fashion to reveal its radial brushed flanks.

Sharing a similar aesthetic with the time setting crown, the crown at the 2 hour position operates a bi-directional rotating internal bezel that can be used as a minute timer.

The screw-down crown used for setting the time and date at the 4-hour position exhibits a high-polished chamfer separating the coin-edged portion from the embossed TRASKA logo on the outermost surface.

Automatically wound by the motion of the wearer, the Japanese Made Miyota 9039 caliber oscillates at 28,800 beats per hour and will keep on ticking for decades. A 24 jeweled, two step, hand-windable movement with hacking, the 9039 is a true no-date movement. Introduced by the Japanese firm as an alternative to the Swiss Made ETA-2824, one could argue that the high-beat 9039 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.

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 five micro-adjustments and the removable link’s large flat head screws allow the bracelet to be sized to your exact liking with ease.

Effortlessly adjust the size of your bracelet and get the perfect fit at all times thanks to our tool-less micro-adjustable buckle. With 5 different positions spaced 1.5mm apart, you can make your bracelet incrementally smaller or larger with the push of a button. No screwdrivers. No screws. No frustration. Oh, and it includes two additional half-links to ensure a comfortable fit for every wrist!

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.
