About our watches:
Junghans - Inventiveness and the pursuit of precision are the keys to the success of Junghans watches since the company was founded in 1861. The demands placed on timepieces have changed over the years, but the Junghans philosophy has remained the same. The unique combination of the traditional watchmaking craft, the pursuit of innovations, and a fusing of modernity and tradition continue to shape the work of Junghans today themed "From Tradition To Future". Making use of not only traditional and ultra-modern technology in products of high value but also often a polarizing design provides the brand Junghans with an unique position on the international market. The brand Junghans is synonymous with high quality standards at best value. Junghans was, is and will be in future THE German watch brand. - http://junghans.de/
Casio - Casio's corporate creed is "creativity and contribution." It expresses the company's commitment to contributing to society by offering the kind of original, useful products that only Casio can. Products with innovative functions assist people in their daily lives and keep society moving forward. They also bring joy to people and help to create new culture. When even a single new product is widely adopted, whole new markets develop, and this in turn fosters growth in related industries.
Traser - Mb-microtec’s ability to manufacture trigalight® (Gaseous Tritium Light Source) is the result of decades of research and development in the field of radio luminescence. Small glass tubes are coated on the inside with a phosphorescent material, then filled with a minute amount of tritium gas and hermetically sealed by a laser. Electrons emitted from the gas excite the material to give off a cold light. Trigalight® can be manufactured to give off light in different colors. Trigalight® are self-activated and self-powered light sources. They function independently from a battery or any other source of outside energy. They never need recharging or servicing and do not require the push of a button. They are 100 times brighter than anything comparable and have a life span of more than 20 years. Mb-microtec created the world’s first Swiss made watch with Trigalight® technology. All Traser H3 watches are equipped with Trigalight® . They are an absolute must in the emergency, safety and protection sectors as well as in the armed forces. They are ideal for fans of adventure and sports. Traser H3 watches are top quality Swiss watches, extremely robust and reliable. - http://www.traserusa.com/

About atomic timekeeping:

All atomic watches receive a radio signal from the Caesium atomic clock, the world's most precise clock, accurate to 1 second in 1 million years.

The signal is encoded so that it can be transmitted in longwave radio form. The signal originates from the WWVB transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado and is transmitted on a frequency of 60 kHz.

The atomic watches contain an antenna and internal program to receive and decode the radio signal. It is then uses the data to display the precise time. The watch maintains accuracy through automatic nightly updates with the radio signal.
