In this month’s aBlogtoWatch giveaway, one lucky reader will win a Traser P68 Pathfinder automatic watch. As one of the most well-known manufacturers of value-focused sport watches, Traser also serves as the in-house brand of MB-Microtec, who produces self-illuminating tritium gas tubes. From legible field watches to durable divers, Traser manages to fit an excellent variety of features into watches that are meant to last a lifetime. This Traser P68 Pathfinder, for example, provides its wearer with an internal compass ring, an automatic movement, and an impressive array of tritium gas tubes together with Super-LumiNova.
The Traser P68 Pathfinder’s case is PVD-coated and 46mm in diameter. While certainly large, the coating allows for the watch to appear slightly more compact on wrist for a more low profile look. Water resistance is 100m, a durable sapphire crystal aids legibility with its AR coating, and the deep sunray blue dial serves as a perfect backdrop for the host of vital information displayed by the Traser P68 Pathfinder.

If you look at the first advertisements of the Caliber 11 watches, you see that the Monaco described as having been designed by a famous “Korean Designer” I’m not sure how accurate that was, because Jack makes no mention of any particular designer beyond Piquerez within his biography when talking the Monaco, but it had been clear that between these 3 brand new automatic watches, it was the Autavia which was intended for its monitor. The Monaco wasn’t intended to be on the wrist of anyone at LeMans, which was a happy accident.So much has been made about who’s worn the Monaco, we believed it was time we gave it a shot ourselves. The watch we were able to get for this review is really the prototypical McQueen watch, mention 1133 from late 1971. This one only appears to have a gray dial rather than a blue one, so its full reference is a 1133G, compared to McQueen 1133B. What you first notice about the Monaco is how large the instance is. It’s actually quite large, particularly for classic standards, and stays high on the wrist thanks to the modular chronograph movement and sandwiched, 30m watertight case.One can see that the pushers and crown are really cut out of the upper part of the circumstance, which functions as a bit of a shield against accidental activation or jolt. The pushers are ridged, just like they’re around Autavias of the moment. The corners of the square cases place a bit curved, which is what makes this view operate. When there were sharp angles on the case, I am not sure it would have observed the same success as it did over the previous four decades. The dial of this Monaco is extremely flat, though still very intriguing. Obviously it’s square shaped, with a circular second track that includes lume plots at each hour marker. Additionally, there are employed metallic markers at every hour, with larger markers at the corners (11, two ,7, and 4 o’clock).
