This watch is a SUBSL/SS/BNQ and is the ancestor of the current watch shown on the factory site here https://mwcwatches.com/products/mwc-300m-stainless-quartz-military-diver-with-tritium-gtls?_pos=1&_sid=6a26fb9fd&_ss=r below is a full description of this particular watch and the issues which it has (or is reported to have because in many cases the watches do not have significant issues, below that is the full information relating to this model from the factory website which gives full details of all of the dimensions, specification and other information relating to the watch.

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


Condition: Very tidy, considering its age

Fault:  This watch is 10 years old and dated October 2013, it is still running and keeps perfect time, it's clearly been in storage for years and there are no issues apparent. It would be wise to change the battery because we have to assume that as the battery life is 10 years but sometimes watches are assembled for contracts over a period of a year so it could still have 12 or 18 months to run, the tin at the sale had a tag saying "Listenbestand Referenz: Auktionsartikel 43 Nürnberg 2017" this suggests that was the date at which it was planned to enter it into a sale but it clearly took years before it actually went to the auction quite possibly due to delays caused by Covid.

This brand new recently uprated military divers watch in stainless steel is one of MWC's latest models with a high performance Ronda 715li movement which has an incredible 10 year battery life. This model has Tritium GLTS self luminous light sources and represents excellent value for a military self luminous 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.

The watch measures 45mm including the crown and 40mm excluding the crown although it uses the the same 20mm NATO strap as other MWC military divers watches.
