3 x 50m Battery Hatch Models and 1 x 100m Model

Condition: 4 x G10 as pictured  - None of the watches are running 

Fault:  The watches came from a military clearance sale we suspect some might just need batteries because the youngest watch is 10 years old and the oldest pushing 20 years. Even in a worst case scenario he movements are a freely available Ronda 705 for the 50m battery hatch and Ronda 715li for the 100m model so all would be simple to repair one watch needs a new crystal which is a freely available generic size this watch also needs the hands resetting because it looks like it was dropped.

Factory Description Below is of the current models still in production and very similar to these in general specification.

50M MODELS

SKU Code: G10/PB 

This MWC model is directly descended from the G10 watches we made back in the 1980s and retains the popular battery hatch which has been discarded by most other manufacturers. The battery hatch was originally employed because in the early days of quartz watches batteries only lasted around a year but with the battery on this watch now lasting around 5 years it is really just a design detail although it remains very popular for historical reasons.

This variant of MWC's G10 is one of the companies most tried and tested G10 models and in its earlier variants has been in service for over 30 years. A large number of serving military on deployments worldwide have evaluated this model with very favourable reports with regard to long term reliability and general durability. One factor which greatly contributes to this is the screw-down locking crown which provides a high degree of protection when compared to watches with more vulnerable push-in crowns.

This watch also benefits from the use of Luminova for improved nighttime visibility. Luminova operates like a light battery, after sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light, the dial will glow in the dark until the luminosity gradually diminishes although larger markings are often visible for the whole night. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any ageing. The other advantage is that LumiNova pigments are 100% free of radioactivity.

The watch has a sandblasted non-reflective case, sandblasting is a process that was historically used on a large number of military watches from other manufacturers and has not been widely employed since the 1990s, although more costly to manufacture offers the best non-reflective characteristics of all stainless steel case finished.

When we secured a contract to produce a variant of this model in 2009 it was specified that the case should be covert and non-reflective and it was decided that sandblasting was the best process to meet that requirement as well as providing a very robust and durable finish. The end result is that our G10 battery hatch watches are totally unique and extremely functional with a high visibility dial.

The watch is supplied with both a current issue grey NATO webbing strap and a black strap although we can supply a wide range of straps in other colours if you wish to buy another variant as an additional strap. The back of the case bears various contract markings (which are unique to each watch) in addition to the serial number.

100M MODEL

The MWC 100m G10 models in stainless steel are one of the highest specification G10 military watches in production anywhere in the world with an incredible 10 year battery life. Although this G10/98 Specification watch traces its origins right back to our earliest G10 designs when this 100m model was initially introduced for contract purchase in 2008-2010 in a variety of variants it represented the most radical upgrade and specification enhancement since we updated our standard 50m G10 models in 2004.

Currently, MWC is the only contractor producing NATO specification infantry watches which meet a water resistance rating of 100m (330ft) as opposed to the standard 30m or 50m (99ft or 165ft) rating of other manufacturers. Whilst the screw down crown and screw caseback greatly improve the water resistance the upgrade to the Ronda 715li movement with 10 year battery life greatly reduces the maintenance requirements of the watch. The watch has a sandblasted non-reflective case, sandblasting is a process which was historically used on many military watches from other manufacturers and has not been widely employed since the 1990s, although more costly to manufacture than other steel finishes it offers the best non reflective characteristics and is vastly superior to both standard brushed or satin stainless steel cases.

When we secured a contract to produce this model in 2009 it was specified alongside the requirement for screw caseback, 100m water resistance and screw down crown that the case should be 100% covert and non-reflective and it was decided that sand blasting was the best process to meet that requirement as well as providing a very robust and durable finish. The end result is that our 100m water resistant G10 watches are unique and extremely functional with a high visibility dial.

This unbranded G10 100m variant is very rugged and is designed to survive the most extreme of conditions. It is supplied with a current issue grey NATO webbing strap and also a black NATO strap. The back of the case bears various contract markings (which are unique to each watch) in addition to the serial number.
