5 x MWC Classic 1960s/70s Pattern Vietnam Watches 3 x Black and 2 x Olive on Webbing Straps - Might Need a Checkover
5 x Brand New MWC Classic 1960s/70s Pattern Vietnam Watches
These watches are from a trade show in 2019. They are reduced to just £59.00 for all five (normally the watches are £36.50 each!) at the time the packing center located them during a stock check (August 19th 2021) 4 were running one was not but the battery life is three years so it could just be a battery failure on that one watch. All are in as new condition as can be seen in the images of the actual watches, the batteries will need to be changed within a year and it is not practical to return them back to one of our offices for the batteries to be changed or to be sent to MWC because by the time we have factored in the shipping costs back and forth it would not be worthwhile.
FACTORY DESCRIPTION OF THE CURRENT MODEL WHICH IS VERY SIMILAR
MWC's Vietnam Watches are virtually identical in appearance to the watches used by American troops in the Vietnam war during the 1960s and 1970s they produce two variants in both covert black and the original olive drab.
MWC manufactured the plastic Vietnam watches for many years which were based on the original Vietnam models which you can see when you click this link where there are various images and details. The actual US Military Issue models were made of plastic because they were deemed disposable and of course the problem for MWC with making their own Vietnam watches in plastic is they were in effect very basic just like the originals so in 2010 they decided to completely rethink the watch and whilst keeping the original appearance, weight and feel they switched to all metal construction which means that although the watch looks very close to the originals it is vastly superior in both durability and general quality.
