G10SL MKVI 300m Water Resistant Military Watch with GTLS Tritium Light Sources and Sapphire Crystal - Ex Demo Watches - Last Two Under Half Price
We received two of these watches which were originally MWC demo watches from various trade shows in 2017, both are in new condition and keeping perfect time. One watch was the one used for the promotional images shown here. Considering they had been in storage since early 2018 amazingly they were still accurate to within 2 or 3 minutes of the correct time!
SKU Code: G10SL/SS/300
This is the latest self luminous G10 model with sapphire crystal, heavy duty 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 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 with two heavyweight NATO webbing straps, one grey and one black. The reverse of the case carries various contract markings.
