Rare MWC MIL-TEC MKIV PVD Stainless Steel Military Pilots Chronograph - Ex Display Watch from a Trade Show in 2015 Most likely needs a new battery
This watch is brand new with the plastic still on the crystal and was a display watch from a trade show in 2015. The watch is not running but the issue is most likely to be a battery failure because the battery life is four and a half years and the watch is 7 years old. This watch is probably the last new MTEC/MKIV/PV anywhere.
SKU Code: MTEC/MKIV/PV
The latest Mil-Tec MKIV in covert black PVD steel has a number of improvements over its predecessor the MKIII. Although the MKIII had a screw down crown the MKIV has an increased water resistance rating to 100 metres (10atm or 330ft) and also in addition to the increased water resistance rating we have added higher visibility hands to the subsidiary dials which makes the hands much easier to see when the watch is being utilized in military and aviation applications as well as routine day to day uses which necessitate precise timing requirements. Although the watch was specifically designed to meet the needs of military aircrews it is also ideal for airline, GA pilots and marine applications.
The actual case size is 45mm and the chronograph uses a Ronda 5040.D movement with extended 54 month battery life. One of the biggest benefits of this movement is that Ronda in Switzerland designed it to use a standard 395 battery which means any watchmaker or jeweller will have a stock of this item because it is used by such a high number of current superior quality quartz watches.
