MWC MIL-TEC MKIV PVD Stainless Steel Military Pilots Chronograph - MIGHT NEED A BATTERY REPLACEMENT

£275.00 £91.50 91.50



These watches are brand new and were purchased at a military and security industries clearance auction.


They were listed as new and unissued in the auction and all are in their original tins with the factory packaging and plastic film still on the crystals, a few had Canadian Coast Guard - Garde côtière canadienne on the packaging but are in standard MWC boxes.

The notes in the auction said "battery Needs Replacement / Maybe limited battery life" we suspect they have been in storage for sometime and although we bought 83 spread across 4 variants we found almost all were running and the handful that weren't we had shipped to our watchmaker to be checked, he replaced the batteries and they were fine so we put those into our normal stock. These watches are the remainder of the quantity which we bought and are in our shipping and fulfilment centres hence we are clearing them at a fraction of the usual price rather than bother to swap the batteries.



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.
