This watch is brand new, the strap and box may show a few signs of having been handled at the show and for reasons unknown the watch is not running but it is greatly reduced and even if it's not just simply a battery failure "which seems likely" replacing the Ronda 715li movement is very straightforward for anyone with basic horological skills.


This brand military divers watch in stainless steel is one of MWC’s latest models with a high-performance Ronda 715li movement which an incredible 10-year battery life. This model has Tritium GLTS self-luminous light sources and a shatter-resistant sapphire crystal as well as a ceramic bezel which is extremely scratch-resistant and durable compared to aluminium, the watch represents excellent value for a military self-luminous tritium divers watch with such a high specification.
The Gaseous Tritium Light Sources (GTLS) on these watches make them the easiest watches in the world to see in low light or night conditions. The Tritium vials on the H3 dial illuminate up to 100 times brighter than any other watch dial, so you can easily identify the time at a second's glance.

* A lot of people ask us what are the benefits of sapphire crystal over a standard mineral crystal? The answer is that synthetic sapphire is by far the best material for watch crystals because it is very strong and also shatter and scratch-resistant, these characteristics make it very appealing to military and security personnel, police officers and people who lead active outdoor lifestyles, these groups account for over 70% of our customers. To get things into perspective we find that when clients have accidents with watches resulting in a cracked crystal over 90% are usually watches with mineral glass crystals, even factoring in that we use hardened mineral crystals they still do not come close to sapphire for durability under adverse conditions. The reason that sapphire crystals are so strong is that after the sapphire glass is manufactured it is also heat-treated to remove its internal stresses—which can cause weakness—it is then made into the watch crystals and two layers of anti-reflective coating are applied, interestingly sapphire crystal is now used on the latest iPhone. Of course, sapphire crystal comes at a price hence you find that it's normally only fitted to higher-end watches.
