Since the release of the first renditions more than a year ago, certain design elements of the Treudd (Trident) has generated a lot of comments, discussion and engagement. The watch released, our founder’s limited edition (ref. KA1F) continued to engage. Here are the five most frequently asked questions and their answers.
Does the watch have the golden trident on the dial?
Answer: No. Treudd (ref. KA1F) comes without the golden trident. Instead we’ve added the water resistance in the Swedish fathoms (famnar). 1 famn = 1.78 m.
As related, we ended up dropping the golden trident that was featured on the first renditions and prototype. In short, there were three reasons for that. First, the golden trident made the dial too busy. Second, it didn’t give the other two tridents (case back and crown) justice. Third, it overshadowed the other design elements and didn’t go well with the blue bezel insert.
What does Treudd mean and how do you pronounce it?
Answer: Treudd is Swedish for Trident. It is a dedication to the Swedish combat divers and coastal rangers.
It is pronounced “Treh-uddh” with emphasis on the first syllable. Since our concept is high spec, high quality watches with dedication to Swedish traditions and icons within aviation, military and industry, we wanted to dedicate our professional diver’s watch to the ones mentioned above. Their insignia is a golden trident.
Does the watch come on bracelet or strap?
Answer: Both. At delivery, the Treudd is mounted on bracelet and has a two-piece nylon strap on the side.
All our watches are delivered with a complimentary strap and the necessary tools to change. The reason for this is that Celegin Precision Timing is founded and run by watch enthusiasts. As such, we want to inspire personalization of the watch. The best way to do that is to change straps and that’s why we add a secondary strap as a starting point.
Are there any Treudd left on stock?
Answer: Not many. As long as it’s available in the webshop, there are pieces left on stock.
We aren’t huge fans of making limited editions. However, as part of the inception of Celegin Precision Timing, we decided to offer our first two productions at a very favourable price as so called “founder’s limited editions”. Our coming, regular productions won’t be limited although the batches are limited in production. This means that when sold out, it may take a few months or even up to a year before we have it on stock again.
What about a no-date version/different color/different size (etc.)?
Answer: In due time. By altering 10 common features of a watch, with a few options on each, you quickly end up with tens of thousands of different permutaions.
The Treudd concept is something we really like and see has many interesting paths. Our current plan is to release 1-2 versions of Treudd within the coming year and both will be quite different from the KA1F.
