This Ltd Edition is a recreation based on the original 1960's Vietnam designs but with the interesting feature of being PVD plated making the watch non-reflective and covert. The watches at the time were made in a variety of slightly different styles by Benrus, Bulova and Waltham but were all based on an original US government specification laid down at the time. Many of the original watches used a 15 or 16 jewel movement but this watch has 24 jewels to improve accuracy.
This particular watch came into being because in January 2009 MWC was approached by a US veterans association who asked us to examine the viability of making a watch which was similar in appearance to the original watches which were made during the Vietnam war. They were sent samples of watches to examine and also the original specification sheets and the result was a watch which was very close to the original and used a high grade fully jewelled hand-wound movement this watch was a further development with a 24 jewel automatic movement with 41-hour power reserve. As a result of making that watch, they were contacted again with a view to recreating a limited edition and as a result, are planning to manufacture a range of variants over the next few years. The original watches are now almost impossible to find in good sound condition and in mint condition are becoming fairly valuable so this recreation is a cost-effective way to own a watch made in the spirit of the original but with a unique PVD black finish.
