MWC G10LM 12/24 Cover Non Reflective Black PVD Military Watch - Might Have a Fault Not Running
This watch is a G10LM1224PVD 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
Fault: The watch is not running and sometimes watches from the auctions don't have anything at all but we can't be sure although it looks very new and it could just be a battery failure. There were two watches together at the clearance sale both looking pretty much factory fresh hence the possibility its a battery issue as neither was running.
The G10LM in black PVD is one of MWC's latest G10 models and is a slightly smaller more compact version of the MWC G10BH and G10 100m.
Although this watch is similar in appearance to some other manufacturers models it is vastly different in the actual specification details. For example where other companies watches usually have a push on caseback this has a screw on caseback which improves water resistance, competitors also frequently use perspex crystals whereas we use actual glass which is much more scratch resistant and streamlined in appearance.
The G10LM range consists of an extensive range of different variants which encompasses stainless steel, black PVD steel, models with both European pattern 12 hour dials and U.S pattern 12/24 hour dials as well as variants both with and without a date window and models with a choice of different strap colors, regardless of your exact needs check out the various options at this link G10LM Range.
Of course the biggest difference is the price because competing models from other manufacturers are priced at up to $250 / £170 / €239 which is well over twice the price of this watch.
