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 in many cases 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: SM/AV/2

Condition: Excellent as can be seen in the images of the actual watch

Fault: Running but the second hand needs resetting



This MWC classic aviator model is 100m water resistant with a solid stainless steel case and screw-down crown and case back. The classic design and retro style crown combined with the low maintenance and highly accurate hybrid movement make this a unique and very desirable timepiece. 

MWC hybrid watches essentially combine the best of both 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 and hacking function as seen in automatic watches with the hassle-free maintenance benefits of a quartz watch.
