MWC 300m Water Resistant Stainless Steel Navigator Watch with Super Luminova - Ex Display Watch from the IWA Show in Germany
We have two of these watches which were on our display stand at the IWA show in Nürnberg, Germany both watches are new but the packaging is a bit soiled and they have been tried on by a few people but they have a full 24 month warranty and as can be seen represent a big saving over the normal price.
These robust 300m water resistant watches were specifically designed for marine, surface and airborne navigation applications, manufactured to U.S MIL-PRF-46374G specification. In 2016 MWC secured a contract to supply 2000 watches over a 4 year period from 2017 to 2020 apparently they have recently secured another contract so we are going to clear the small number of watches we have remaining because the new model will probably be slightly different as though we have not yet seen it. These two watches are ex-exhibition watches so they are even more favourable on price than our normal stock.
The watches all have a 12hr bezel, which offers a very simple and straightforward method to track a second time-zone. The bezel has high visibility numerals and the dial is also very clear and easy to read even under adverse light conditions. The watch uses Super Luminova which is a non radioactive paint which stores light and releases it progressively during the night.
The timepiece features a high quality Ronda high precision Quartz Movement (Ronda caliber 715li) designed to withstand high G-forces which has an incredible 10 year battery life as well as an end of battery life indicator. The watch is water resistant to 30 ATM (1000 ft/300m) although it is not a diving watch due to using an entirely different bezel format to permit usage in two time zones it is manufactured to the same water resistance rating as our divers models with screw down crown and caseback. The main difference between this watch and many other models which we manufacture is that it is designed to maintain high levels of accuracy at altitudes up to 12,000m / 40,000ft without compensatory pressurization.
The case is made of stainless steel. The rotating outer bezel provides annotations to enable the watch to show the time in two different time zones.
The crystal is military grade sapphire which is highly scratch resistant and has two internal layers of non reflective coating.
