My sturdy daily driver, a Traser H3, is in need of repairs (broken rotor). The service center is quoting $600+ for a fix. This repair pricepoint is close to the price of a few new watches: Stowa and Weiss for now. My Traser has been a steady companion on many cycing and outdoor adventures. I wear it daily and value its ability to be worn under rough conditions. It's no beauty but it works. Everyone needs a wheelbarrow watch like this one. Is an 8 y/o Traser automatic worth the repair investment or would it be wiser to start with a new watch? Wisdom here? LL
Hello and help. I'm a longtime watch lover in need of council. My first nice watch, a Traser H3 automatic (8 years old), needs a replacement rotor. The repair center is quoting a rotor replacement price that is nearly triple the original purchase price: $680.00. I've always said I would upgrade to a nicer watch once this one dies. What's the wisdom of repairing this model of watch or just starting from scratch with something new? Additional question: Recommedations for repair centers that work on Traser and Fortis movements?
The difference between an automatic movement and a kinetic movement. IAll watches tell time, but some function in different ways. Automatic and kinetic watches represent two different eras of watch manufacturing and two different approaches to reaching one desired effect. Kinetic is a quartz (electrical) movement which is self powered, meaning the rotor charges a capacitor. Automatic, on the other hand, is a mechanical movement in which the rotor charges a spring. The rotor is a weight which spins around due to the movement of the wearer's wrist.
