The perhaps toughest Swedish diver watch
Possibly the Toughest Swedish Diver Watch?
Treudd (Swedish for trident) falls under the category of so-called professional diver watches. Just like the Draken pilot watch, the first edition of Treudd is limited to 100 pcs as a founder’s limited edition.
The prototypes arrvied in August and are evaluated during the fall. Production and delivery are scheduled to spring/summer of 2022. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries/reservations.
Treudd is an automatic diver watch with a date function. Like Draken, Treudd is dedicated to Sweden and our military traditions. The golden trident is inspired by the symbol of the Swedish naval special forces; the coastal rangers and attack divers.
The design of Treudd is based on established principles for diver watches. The design elements are combined such that the watch becomes unique in its own way. Like the name, all text on the watch is in Swedish language. There are many great diver watches out there, but only one Treudd.
Treudd is powered by an automatic Swiss movement, the highly renown Sellita SW200-1. It has a power reserve of 38 hours. The case back is detailed embossed; a trident over a wave pattern. The bezel is ceramic with distinguished diver layout. All illuminated elements have BGW9 which is white in daylight and turquoise/blue in darkness.
What is the Definition of a Professional Diver’s Watch?
The modern diver watches origin from the 1950’s, a time where many of the classic and contemporary design elements came. Today’s diver watches can be divided in two groups: diver watches and professional diver watches. For the former, the design often have priority over function. For professional divers, the specifications are generally much higher in order to withstand tough conditions.
Automatic Swiss Movement: Sellita SW200-1
Treudd is powered by one of the most proven automatic movements: Swiss SW200-1 (equivalent to ETA 2824). The movement has a counterweight rotor winding up the main spring while the watch with the motion of the wrists it’s on. Its power reserve of 38 hours enables you to leave the watch til well into the day after the next when fully wound. The movement has been chosen because of its extreme reliability, quality and precision. It can also be serviced at most qualified watchmakers around the world!
Glass: Sapphire Crystal
The watch has a flat sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating on the inside. This enables a nice trade-off between high legibility in situations with glare while not exposing the AR-coating to any potential damage or tear.
The bezel is unidirectional counter-clockwise to eliminate the risk of overshooting time keeping. It has 120 positions (clicks) meaning that it can be used to measure time at intervals of 30 seconds. It has a ceramic insert which makes it completely resistant to scratches or dents. All parts are illuminated with Swiss BGW9 Super LumiNova: white in daylight and turquoise/blue in darkness.
300 m water resistance
The case is made out of stainless steel (316L). The case back is solid to ensure that the watch can withstand high-demanding conditions. Its water resistance is 300 m, also enabled by the screw down crown.
Dial and hands
The watch sports bayonet hands for hours and minutes. The seconds hand is a lollipop hand. All hands and the applied indexes are illuminated with BGW9 lume giving a nice contrast to the matte black dial.
The KA1F has a date window at the 4 o’clock position.
The original prototype featured a golden trident on the dial. Please read here about why it was removed.
Bracelet & Straps
The Treudd comes on a solid link steel bracelet with a large diver’s clasp with many adjustment possibilities. It has female end links, giving the bracelet a nice feel.
Treudd will also come with a secondary strap; we’ll release more information going forward.
