MWC 100m G10 Water Resistant General Service Watch, Sweep Second Hand Hybrid Mechanical/Quartz Movement - Brand New But Needs a New Battery
This watch is a G10/100M/HY 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 in the case of these watches, they are brand new and may need replacement batteries. They had originally belonged to a security company who we presume had had them for a while and decided to enter them into the sale. These watches are greatly reduced, and once they are gone, we would not expect to be able to obtain anymore. It's the first time we've seen this watch in any of the sales, so we presume there was just this one off batch.
Condition: Brand New
Fault: We checked several of the watches and they were running but some were not, the information in the sale said that they may need replacement batteries, so we presume they could've been in stock with the seller for sometime. MWC Hybrid Models of this type use a 371 Battery, alternatives are - SR920SW, SR69, SR921, SB-AN, 280-31, V371, D371, 605, S921E, GP371, AG6, AG-6, 371, CX921, SR290SW, 371, SR69, SG6, LR921, LR920SW, L921, 371A, 371X

The MWC 100m G10 models in stainless steel are one of the highest specification G10 military watches in production anywhere in the world with a hybrid mechanical/quartz movement. The MWC hybrid watches essentially combine the best of new and traditional watchmaking technology. They encompass 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. 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.
Although this G10/98 Specification watch traces its origins right back to our earliest G10 designs in the 1980s this 100m model with hybrid movement is something we have not made for several years but a number of dealers said they have regular requests for a G10 hybrid hence this re-run.
The watch has a smooth satin case finish which is quite popular with many clients who don't want a watch that looks so obviously military which is the case with sandblasted cases. The satin watch has a generally much more refined appearance. The end result is that this 100m water resistant G10 watch is totally unique and extremely functional with a high visibility dial.
All of our G10 100m variants are very rugged is designed to survive the most extreme of conditions. It is supplied with both a current issue grey NATO webbing strap and a black strap although we can supply a wide range of straps in other colours if you wish to buy another variant as an additional strap. The back of the case bears various contract markings (which are unique to each watch) in addition to the serial number.
