Moving forward in time, it was the Quartz Era. Citizen had several Sub Brands such as VEGA and OXY. I found this rare VEGA DIVER Orange Dial with the famous Paddle Hands taken from the Citizen Quartz Divers. About the same time, I also found this rare Orient Quartz Diver. They both have Golden Hands : * VEGA 100m Diver and Orient Quartz Diver.

Quick raw shot to of our two blues to take is onto the weekend! Half of the SWC Roemer family will be in Switzerland this coming week so if you are in the neighborhood let us know! We would love to meet you!
Guys this may be the deal of the year. #kickstarter campaign starts Monday with early bird pricing at only $169!! Crazy 😜 😄 I am a big fan of this one, love the looks and proportions are right 👍now available in three colors (See last photo). The #GoodpeedWatches Petrol represents a great value imho when you compare to other micros available with the same mvt and similar specs for more $. I really enjoyed wearing it. It hugs the wrist, great profile. Check out their feed and the KS campaign, which kicks off 10/22/2018 🤘🙏 #goodpeed#goodspeedPetrol
Time for a little update!
We successfully delivered nearly 200 watches to supportive Kickstarter backers all around the world, organized our remaining inventory in two different warehouses on opposite ends of the globe for the speediest shipping possible, and last but certainly not least- created a webshop so that you too can have the opportunity to own a Traska Watch!
The webshop will go live on Monday, October 22 at 11:00am EST.
Shipping will be done via USPS priority for those of you in the United States, and via DHL Express for everyone else.
We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone that has been following our journey- it is because of YOU that we are able to serve the community with our vision of what a world-class sport watch should be.

As I settled the bill we sat back and relaxed and took our time with our last round. It had been three months since we last had a chance to catch up due to travel and work, and my friend was not in a good place. Even though he had taken the last few days off to celebrate his 35th birthday, he was riddled with fatigue, and this was the portion of the night that he wanted to address his health.
Yet still sober, he shrugged slightly out of balance in his seat leaning towards his dominant side. “I’m just simply exhausted. Brother, I am tired even as I get out of bed.” - “What do you guys eat at home?” I asked referring to his diet alongside his wife’s. - “We just buy what ever they sell in the prepared food aisle in the grocery store at the base of our condo,” he said dejected. - “I’m guessing that you guys do this everyday and you haven’t exercised in a couple of years either.” - “Yeah, but,” his voiced trailed as it came slowly back into focus as the cold breeze from the bars entrance rushed in as an excitable group in their early twenties entered. “You don’t understand, man. It’s tough.” - “I fully understand. The only way I made a difference in my health by continually improving myself was by focusing on what I would like to do in my life, and working towards my health goals needed to partake in those activities.” I paused to gauge his attention level and whether he was absorbing any of my words as I took a long sip from my beer, and thereby giving him time to chime in before continuing. “I’ve long surpassed those initial goals, but the activities I want to partake in have become more challenging and grow by the day. Try to focus on what you would like to do in your life outside of your career and work towards that. Your health will follow.” - “Honestly, all I want to do is keep playing Overwatch when I get home with my wife,” he replied with a genuine smile. - “Well, if that’s what makes you guys happy, I don’t see how hitting the gym for an hour a day will help you there,” I said as we smiled, staring into our remaining pints of Guinness.
Aaaaannnd that’s a wrap! All pre-orders are shipped and on their way home. What a busy week it has been, but now that things are slowing down a little, we’d just like to take a minute to say “thank you”. Making awesome watches is a great consolation, but the real prize for us is seeing happy new owners. Enjoy your new Contrail and we hope it serves as a trusty sidekick on your travels around the world! 🌎🌍🌏 • there is one of each of the Contrail 12Hrs left in stock, except for the Laguna Sand which as of yesterday morning is completely gone. We still have a handful of each Contrail 39.
In many industries we see multiple manufacturers come to the same conclusion through varying paths as to the best way to solve a problem.
In the automotive field, we are seeing the market being flooded with 2.0 litre four cylinder turbocharged engines in order to better comply with emissions regulations, while still delivering the power output that the consumer has come to expect. The results are a sea of cars with engines that lack the character of the previous naturally aspirated engines. At the end of the day these engines are more efficient through normal city and highway driving, and are also more powerful than those that proceeded them.
When it came to the issue of excess gasses which would rupture dive watches after very deep dives, Seiko went another route with their classic “Tuna” professional dive watches. While others ultimately all went ahead with the helium escape valve, Seiko employed a unique L-shaped gasket coupled with a mighty case structure to not allow excess Helium gasses to enter the watch in the first place.
Pictured here is my Seiko SBBN025 “Darth Tina” with the truly gorgeous Limited Edition SBBN040 which was presented by @seikowatchcanada
If these sorts of watches interest you, pay a visit to @gembijou in downtown Toronto for a closer look.
