As soon as you order a TRASKA, it becomes our mission to get your watch into your hands/onto your wrist as quickly as possible. We offer free expedited shipping to all of our customers, using reputable services we have worked with for years:
United States: FedEx 2 Day (2 business days)
All Other Countries: FedEx International Economy (4-6 business days)


We are very confident that you’re going to love your TRASKA watch. So confident, in fact, that we offer a two-week long inspection period for every purchase. If, after two weeks or less, you’re not head-over-wrist in love with your investment, you can return it (at your expense), provided your watch has never been removed from its original plastic wrapping and is still in the exact same condition it arrived in. To request a return, email and we will send you a return form to complete and send to us alongside your watch.

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 Summiteer’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.

Two concentric circles divide the hand-applied Swiss Made BGW9 Super-LumiNova hour markers into subsections, giving the semi-matte dial a sector-esque appearance reminiscent of Art Deco dial designs from the 1930s. The center of the dial is embossed, creating a three-dimensional effect that can only be truly appreciated when seen in person.

To achieve their deep blue hue, the stainless steel hands are placed on a mound of brass shavings and heated to over 500°F. As the temperature rises, the shade of the hands gradually shifts. Once that unmistakable blue shade has been reached, the hands are quickly removed from the shavings and allowed to cool before being prepped for the final step of the process — a healthy application Swiss Made BGW9 Super-LumiNova. The result? Easy reading even in dim lighting thanks to the lume, and a captivating blue color that has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.

Understated yet robust, the Summiteer sports a scratch-resistant case hewn from surgical-grade 316L hardened stainless steel. Serving as a testament to our commitment to the smallest of details, you’ll enjoy observing the way light dances around the polished chamfers that highlight the transitions in finishes. The case’s design is further elevated by the ever so slightly convex nature of the mirror polished mid-case, with sides that bulge out just enough for the discerning wearer to appreciate how every detail has been meticulously considered.

The stainless steel bezel is topped with brushed sunburst finish that contrasts neatly with a thick, highly polished chamfer, lending the fixed bezel an even balance of opulence and restraint.

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 embossed TRASKA logo on the outermost surface.

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.

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.

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.
