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

This MWC in 12/24 hour dial format model retains the battery hatch which has been discarded by most other manufacturers and is a very useful feature which saves considerable expense when a replacement battery is required. This model has impact resistant glass, using actual glass means that the watch is very resistant to minor scratches and also gives the watch a much cleaner and more streamlined appearance than perspex / acrylic crystals which with the exception of ourselves most other manufacturers still continue to use for their G10 watches. The watch also uses Super-Luminova for improved night time visibility. Super-Luminova operates like a light battery. After sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light, they glow in the dark until the luminosity gradually diminishes although larger markings are often visible for the whole night. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any ageing. The other advantage is that Super-LumiNova pigments are absolutely free of radioactivity.
Our G10 is one of our most tried and tested G10 models and in its earlier variants has been in service for nearly 30 years. A large number of serving military have evaluated this well established model over lengthly periods in various deployments and all reports have been very favourable.
The back of the case bears various contract markings and the watch is supplied with a grey NATO webbing strap.
