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 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 on Dial etc
Fault: The watch was manufactured in 2020 but it's brand new in its tin with the plastic still on the face and caseback we suspect that it simply needs a replacement battery the movement is a Seiko VH31 The VH31 battery life is about 2 years. The cell number for replacement is 371 (SR920SW).

This military divers watch has a 300m (1000ft) Water Resistance rating, screw down crown, screw caseback, Luminova and a sophisticated hybrid movement which combines the characteristics of an automatic watch for example sweep secondhand with the benefits of a highly accurate quartz movement. The watch also has a hacking feature for synchronization or to enable you to stop the watch running and conserve power if it won't be used for an extended period.
The MWC hybrid divers watch essentially combines the best of new and traditional watchmaking technology. It encompasses features from both our conventional automatic and quartz models resulting in a hybrid ultra low maintenance movement. The hybrid movement has a battery powering the movement through coils and a quartz oscillator, but the hands are mechanically actuated and controlled. Essentially the movement is mechanical except it's powered by a battery and regulated by a crystal the only thing it doesn't have is a spring.
The standard MWC divers watches in both automatic and quartz are among MWC's most tried and tested models this watch offers the ideal choice for buyers who would prefer the sweep secondhand as seen in automatic watches with the hassle free maintenance benefits of a quartz watch.
The watch is supplied with two NATO webbing straps one in grey and one in black. The reverse of the case carries various contract markings.
