Swisstek “tungsten” blends high-TEK tungsten, which is virtually scratch and corrosion proof, with high-grade stainless steel. Tungsten Carbide is 3 times more rigid than steel and 6 times more rigid than cast iron or brass.
Tungsten carbide weighs 1.5 times more than carbon steel and wears up to 100 times longer than stainless steel. Tungsten carbide is a non-corrosive material that can only be scratched, cut, or shaped with a precision diamond. Tungsten carbide’s highest compressive strength is used as a heavy metal alloy in armor piercing artillery and tank shielding for the military. Complimenting the bezel is a dome shaped, double curved, sapphire crystal, which virtually makes the entire face of this timepiece scratch resistant.
Crafted with bright luminous dials for effortless night-time viewing, the distinctive elegance of contoured steel, and the robust qualities of tungsten, the Swisstek Tungsten Alarm Chronograph is a very special and unique timepiece that blends elegant sophistication with rugged toughness. This timepiece truly defines the essence of form and function.
