Hi,
I'd keep the Traser - always liked them - if only their cheaper models would have a higher water resistance I'd get one instantly but the diver models exceed my watch budget:-(.

I really like those Trasers...why would you have to change it to get a G Shock...I'd say keep if you can, save to get the G (which one are you looking at ?).

edit : and i accidentally clicked yes on the poll...I meant no.

I believe they have higher water resistance than is stated. I read that here on WUS somewhere I think. Crusader on PilMil would know.

I like my Traser P6500, and think of Trasers as complementary to G-Shocks, rather than replacements. Generally, I prefer them to ana-digi G-Shocks - on the basis that all ana-digis are a little compromised in their design.

Good to know :-!. So maybe I'll take one of their basic models:think:.

G's are relatively inexpensive. So, keep 'em all, and save up for a few months for the next G. That is my method. I can only think of 3 watches in the last ten years that I have given up.

I voted no, but I would have voted "maybe" if there was an option. It depends on how much you wear the Traser. If you find you're not wearing it in favor of the G, then get rid of it and buy that riseman.

ecalzo, hang on to that Traser. You will regret it if you get rid of it.

@ ecalzo,

keep the traser, NO analog G comes even close when you want to read the time in darkness (but then 99% of all other analog watches do not either ;-) ).

@ sedi,

the 3bar WR is official, but inofficial they are 20bar rated. manufacturers do this for pure marketing, because a 20bar watch sells alot better to folks than a 3bar watch. they tend to think if they make the cheaper models 20bar too, who is going to buy the more expensive ones....o|

I have a KHS navigator MKII...



...which is also only 3bar certified (officially) and i had it pressure tested one day at a jeweler. now, he only had the equipment to test this watch for 10bar but it passed with flying colours, so nothing to worry about (and btw. one of the rather few watches i have, without fogging the crystal when exposed to a cold environment)


regards, holger

Keep it ! I have two Trasers (a Commander 100 and a classic Titan) and love them, the night visability and general readability is worth a lot more to me than multiple alarms and other bells and whistles. I do have a number of G shocks which I also love but the Trasers have a special place in my collection.
I did consider selling the Commander a while ago to buy another G and decided to keep it...so pleased I did given the money I would have lost and the wear I get out of it.
Happy saving !:-!

I voted yes, but I don't have a reasoned argument-those Traser's just aren't my cup of tea. I don't like plastic bezels on analogue watches, or 24-hour dials.

If you have doubts already, and you don't like keeping watches you don't wear much, then it sounds like you've already made the decision.

If the Traser design is similar to my Uzi, with the glass level with the top of the bezel, no. The mineral glass on a hard-use/tactical watch should be recessed, unless there' a damn good reason otherwise, like doming to reduce reflections (in which case the glass should be acylic). This design flaw bugs the hell out of me. Is the Traser like that?

I vote keep it.

If it's different from what you intend on buying...keep the traser. You never know when you might want to go back to that style of watch.

Another factor to consider; Do you "need" to sell your present watch to fund the purchase of the new one? If you have the money, keep the traser.
