MWC G10 300m / 1000ft Water resistant Stainless Steel Military Watch with Sapphire Crystal (Non Date) - Brand New But Needs a Checkover
This watch came from a military and security industry's clearance sale it was tagged saying "check over" but it is keeping perfect time and nothing is apparent after it being checked for timekeeping both at the sale and when it arrived at the packing centre a month later. Our feeling is it may simply need a quick check-over or pressure test, but nothing is apparent, and it's a brand-new watch.
SKU Code: G10/SS/300/ND
The MWC 300 m / 1000ft water-resistant G10 models in stainless steel have the highest water resistance rating of any G10 / General Service watch anywhere in the world. The watch has a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and an incredible 10-year battery life. Although this G10/98 Specification watch like many of MWC's other variants traces its origins right back to their earliest G10 designs in the 1980s this model is totally updated and no other General Service watch currently in production can beat its specification.
Currently, MWC is the only contractor producing NATO specification infantry watches which meet a water resistance rating of 300 m / 1000ft, as opposed to the standard 30 m or 50 m (99ft or 165ft) rating of other manufacturers. Whilst the screw-down crown and screw caseback greatly improve the water resistance, the Ronda 715li movement with 10-year battery life significantly decreases the maintenance requirements of the watch. The watch has a sandblasted non-reflective case, sandblasting is a process which was historically used on many military watches from other manufacturers and has not been widely employed since the 1990s, although more costly to manufacture than other steel finishes it offers the best non-reflective characteristics and is vastly superior to both standard brushed or satin stainless steel cases.
When MWC secured a contract to produce this model it was specified alongside the requirement for screw caseback, 300 m water resistance, sapphire crystal and screw-down crown that the case should be highly covert and non-reflective, and it was decided that sandblasting was the best process to meet that requirement because their client had specified it previously with another watch which MWC produced for them. The end result of all these improvements in the specification is that the 300 m water-resistant G10 watches are unique, low maintenance and robust.
The watch is supplied with both a current issue grey NATO webbing strap and a black NATO strap, although we can supply a wide range of straps in other colours if you wish to purchase another option.
The back of the case bears various contract markings in addition to the unique serial number.
