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 at low cost because we find that one of the problems is the pressure of time for our service staff in the UK and elsewhere and in most cases, they have given them a quick check over and nothing is immediately apparent though we have to assume that there is either no real fault with the watch or something will reveal itself over time in which case it’s normally a simple case of a service, repair or battery exchange depending on the exact model
Condition: Brand New with plastic protectors still on crystal and caseback
Fault: Nothing apparent and the watch is running but there could be something although the military auction where it was sold made no reference to a fault.
SKU Code: G10SL/PVUS/300
This is the latest self luminous G10 model with sapphire crystal, heavy duty PVD stainless steel case, 300m (1000ft) Water Resistance, screw down crown, screw caseback and 10 year battery life! The MWC G10 SL MKVI is currently by far the highest specification G10 military watch available.
This model combines the best of new and traditional technology. It keeps all the popular features from the conventional G10 Luminova models and employs the same solid black PVD steel case whilst having the benefit of the cutting edge self luminous GTLS tritium vials. The actual specification of this watch was dictated by American Military Specification Number: US MIL-W-46374F.
The self luminous system makes the watch very easy to read at night and the MKVI has a very distinctive face layout. The hour and minute hands each have a brightly glowing vial of Tritium gas. Whilst the vials contain radioactive gas even when thay are all taken together they contain less than the personal limit of 25 millicuries. (see U.S Nuclear Regulatory Commission regulations 10 CFR 30.15).
Military watches of this type are the easiest in the world to read in low light or total darkness thanks to the self-activated light sources which are 100 times brighter than traditional light sources such as paint. The light-emitting tubes require no battery power or any other form of charging, and never need servicing or maintenance. The life expectancy of the light sources is at least 10 years after which they would start to fade. To compare Tritium GTLS tubes and Super-LumiNova click here
The standard MWC G10 is one of the most tried and tested models and in its earlier variants has been in service for over 30 years, this model shares a similar casing to the Luminova models hence it will be just as durable as the non tritium Luminova versions which we manufacture.
The G10 SL MKVI is supplied a black heavyweight NATO webbing straps. The reverse of the case carries various contract markings.
