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


Model: CHR/100M/LTD

Condition: Brand New in box

Fault: Unknown fault and not running but it could just be a battery as these models were made around 10 years ago. Even the worst way a new Ronda 5040.D movement is not very costly. 


Factory Description

SKU Code: CHR/100M/LTD  
This Stainless Steel Limited Edition Pilots Chronograph in black PVD stainless steel is one of our latest pilots models which was designed to meet the needs of military, airline and GA pilots. The production run is a strictly limited batch of 250 pieces. With a water resistance rating of 100m / 330ft, it is also ideal for water sports, snorkelling and swimming. This watch is 100% Swiss made with a robust state of the art Swiss Ronda 5040.D movement which is highly accurate and encompasses all of the features contemporary fast jet pilots require. The watch is ideal for both Military and Civilian pilots. The Chronograph is water-resistant to 330ft (100m). The back of the cases are individually numbered.
The special covert matt black non-reflective PVD finish is often specified in military contracts for many special forces units as well as by anti-terrorist units and for various covert operations. In the PVD process, the steel is not black all the way through because the colour is created by a special chemical PVD plating process which is vastly superior to the painted finish used on some lower quality watches which can easily fade or rub off. This PVD process means that the colour of the steel is altered at a molecular level, therefore it will not deteriorate even during heavy usage although it can be destroyed if the case is badly damaged by a piece of metal being gouged out or if the case is worn down by really heavy abrasion against rocks or something similar.
