We buy these watches from various defence auctions and other disposal sales and it's frequently the case that we find that there is actually nothing wrong with the watch but it has to be assumed it will have some form of fault though in most cases it's very minor or as described below. These watches are disposed of in this section at low-cost because our service staff in the UK and elsewhere do not have time to give them a thorough check and overhaul, in most cases they have given them a quick check over and nothing is immediately apparent but we have to assume that there is either no real fault with the watch or something will reveal itself over time in which case its normally a simple case of a service or battery exchange depending on the exact model.

The MWC Kampfschwimmer models are MWC's heavy duty divers range and have a significantly more robust case than most other military divers watches, they also have additional crown protection, wider strap at 24mm (most military divers watches use a 20mm strap) and a thicker more durable bezel design. The thicker bezel makes it significantly easier to grip which is a feature which was specified in a recent contract MWC secured because these watches were specifically designed for use by Police and Military divers as well as for use in inflatables operating in cold and extreme environments.
This particular model has a 12/24 format North American pattern NATO dial.
