Product Description

The Torgoen Swiss Men's T23 White GMT Dive Watch is defined by its unique, two-tone design and its superior functionality. The large, round, white 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 black 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 very good watch for the price. As an owner of a Sinn U1, I can say that this is my next favorite watch to wear. I work with my hands all day and this is a very durable watch. I have jumped off waterfalls, scuba dived, climbed mountains, and anything else you can imagine, while wearing this watch. If you are looking for an affordable watch that you may not care about losing, then this is it. I get complimented about it all the time which is great. When I tell people how much I paid for it, they can't believe it. The only downside to this watch is that the strap is not interchangeable. You can't really wear this if your getting dressed up either. Also, the white strap gets dirty easily and some stains do not come out. IMHO the cons are very minor compared to the pros of the T23. I highly recommend buying this watch.
