Product Description

The Torgoen Swiss Men's T23 Blue GMT Dive Watch is defined by its unique, two-tone design and its superior functionality. The large, round, blue dial features arrow-shaped, luminescent hour indexes, a discreet date display between four and five o'clock, an outside minute track, and an innovative, inner 24-hour clock and separate hour hand for dual time-keeping. The uni-directional rotating bezel is bordered in polished stainless steel and styled like the cogs of a gear. Continuing the unique two-tone design is the polyurethane strap with stainless steel inserts and a traditional buckle clasp. This modern timepiece is powered by Swiss-quartz movement and is water resistant to 660 feet (200 meters).


Torgoen Swiss

   
    Simplicity, Boldness and Functionality


Torgoen was founded by an enthusiastic private pilot, Benzi Rosenski. Rosenski, also a veteran of the watch manufacturing industry, combined these two passions to create Torgoen – Professional Pilot Watches. Rosenski envisioned a line of timepieces for pilots that are functional, affordable, well designed and durable.  In 1998 the first Torgoen Swiss timepieces rolled off the production line. The name Torgoen is derived from Thor, the god of thunder in Nordic mythology, and Goen which is a derivative of “go”. The name symbolizes the boldness, functionality and simplicity of design (Thor) in time keeping devices (Goen). These principles guide the Torgoen team in the creation and updating of the line. Although the design of all Torgoen watches has functionalities useful for pilots, it is also perfect for ordinary people who appreciate tangible quality and no-nonsense, yet sophisticaChronograph Pilot Computerted design. The dials have numerals, markers and indexes inspired by cockpit instruments like altimeters and speed gauges. Cockpit instruments have been a subject of ergonomic studies that go back to World War II. This is part of the functionality and boldness that guides Torgoen.

Pilot Computer Dual-TimeE6B Flight Computer – Useful also in the supermarket

In many of its models, Torgoen uses an E6B Flight Computer based on the original design by the US army during World War II. The name was simply the Catalog part number of the device. It allows the pilot to easily solve problems of speed, distance and time. By knowing two of these variables, one can deduct the third with ease. This is based on a regular slide rule which was used by some of us that attended high school before the introduction of pocket calculators. It enables the user to perform any multiplication and division calculations. It is especially good while performing conversions of units and even exchange rate calculations. The watches come with a booklet in three languages with clear instructions of how to use the E6B and examples of how the E6B will help solve calculation problems.

GMT (Zulu Time) – Keeping track of home-time for travelers

Torgoen incorporated in many of its models another feature that is commonly used by pilots and favoredDual-Time by watch enthusiasts - a second time zone displayed in a 24 hour format. Communications between the cockpit and air traffic controllers always use GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) as a common standard. It avoids confusion by pilots arriving at an airport from different time zones.  Every time zone in the globe has a designated letter. GMT was designated with the letter Z and pilots call it Zulu time since Zulu is the phonetic alphabet for Z. It is also useful for travelers crossing different time zones who wish to keep their home-time handy and easily displayed on their watches.

Today the Torgoen brand includes 12 series in its line-up with over 61 different versions. "Considering the components and materials used, we feel that this brand is one of the best values in the market today".      

Torgoen Academy
 
As part of the contribution and commitment to the aviation industry, Torgoen sponsors the Torgoen Academy for flight safety. The academy’s curriculum delivers specialized flight training to both private and commercial pilots that will increase aviation safety by teaching aviators essential recovery and survival skills not normally offered in either primary or advanced flight training. The Torgoen Academy’s training makes pilots safer by teaching them to deal with departures from normal flight, upsets due to turbulence and mechanical failures.  
Following a structured syllabus, pilots develop the ability to keep a cool head while applying techniques learned in the school’s aerobatic training aircraft to resolve the situation at hand. "We literally turn pilot’s upside-down in real airplanes in order to give them the confidence to fix the problem without the panic."

    This is a mascular dive watch piece. It is very stylish too. I take this piece to surfing. Almost half of the people realize it and had a vote.

    I bought it for 295.99 from a deal. Yes I miss the big lightning deal of third of MSRP. But, I am still proud I got this for that price. I read the other reviews, some tells it only worths third of MSRP. I really cannot understand that because although this brand is new to US market, my European friends said that is very famous in Europe. In fact, one said that he is very jealous, I got this for that price. We checked the price that evening, of course it sky-rocketed to 450 bucks. My friend still got one at that price (different color though). So, if you find this around 300 bucks, I believe it is still a steal. Do not miss.

    Bought the watch for a third of the MSRP in September 2011. For this price it is an o.k. watch. I do like the design and the watch wears very comfortably. Given the price I got it for I am happy to own a diver watch from a less well known brand (which I wanted). .
    .
    However, I would not want to purchase it for any higher price:
    The bezel color very easily scratches off, hands are not well alined with markings, and the luminosity fades away very quickly. The band looks rather cheap in real life, though it certainly safes some weight (watch is about 145g). I am not aware that there is a metal bracelet available.
    .
    If the original MSRP is your range, then I suggest looking for divers with 20+ ATM that offer automatic movement, sapphire glass, tritium or superluminova, and availability of metal bracelets (such as Deep Blue).
    .
    .
    Update:
    I have been wearing this watch now daily since I bought it about a year ago. Battery remains fine, watch continues to be fairly accurate, and it is water resistant when swimming (I don't dive).
    Fine sand got stuck under the bezel and made grinding noises for a few days. However, it was o.k. again afterwards without any special service. I just kept wearing it.
    I really don't care about having to adjust the date every other month. Given the original price range this is a poor design. My rating remains at 3*.

    I never think I now own this Swiss elegant watch. I fits my hand perfectly and rubber band makes me feel so much comfortable. I tried to wear it when for my Florida vacation, all day under the water (sea and pool)and nothing happened. It shines under the sun when water touch on the top and reflects the evening lights. But the time reading is very clear and exact. Very satisfy and wish to have the black one too for evening leisure and for being fashionable.
    It is a worth money watch for even $450.

    I am a small budget watch collector and having bought a Torgoen time piece for my wife sometime ago, I figured, for that kind of money, I couldn't go wrong getting this time piece for my self unless it was deffective.
    To my surprise, I received the watch only two days after I placed the order without additional shipping charges(great service on the merchant's behalf).
    Another surprise was to see the beautiful craftsmanship of this watch. The picture does not make justice to the beautiful 3 dimentional effect the sunken inner part of the dial gives to this watch. I have already received many compliments on the beauty of the watch by friends and family members this past Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
    Finally, do not forget that you are getting a Swiss precision watch in its movement. I highly recommend this time piece to anyone...it is well worth it.
