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

Model: CLA/UNB/W10/PCB

Condition: Brand New with Plastic Protectors Still on the casing etc.

Fault: Unknown but not running. Maybe just a battery failure because the hybrid VH31 movements are generally very reliable.




This retro pattern MWC military watch is based on the typical designs used by the British Army in the 1960s, it has been upgraded from acrylic to a glass crystal to enable it to reach modern water resistance standards. The watch offers the benefit of retaining the original outward appearance whilst having the advantage of a few discreet updates to improve its suitability for use on a day to day basis. One major upgrade is the hybrid mechanical/quartz movement. 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.

This watch has a heavy stainless steel satin finish case made from Military Grade 316L stainless steel, sweep second hand, hacking function, black dial and luminous markings. It also has two straps one grey and one black.
