MWC Mk III Stainless Steel 1950's Pattern 100m Water Resistant Automatic Military Watch with Sapphire Crystal (1979 Remake)
SKU Code: MKIII/79/SS/AU
This MKIII variant has the same dial pattern as a model which we made in 1979. All of the MKIII automatic models are a recreation of the classic 1950s NATO specification watches which were made under UK Ministry of Defence reference 6B/346 Mk XI. Although it is very similar in style to the watches made at that time they offer greatly improved accuracy through the use of a modern 24 jewel NH35 Automatic movement with up to 41-hour power reserve and a hacking function.
The reality is that with the budgetary constraints no modern military forces could afford watches of this quality when cheaper models can meet the need. In the past, the world's forces regularly purchased Rolex, IWC, Omega, Longines, and various other well-known brands. Unfortunately, those days are long gone. Because many people still want a military pattern watch that looks right even though it is made to a much higher specification we offer the MKIII models. No expense has been spared to create a superior quality product from the high-performance movement to the brushed stainless steel 1950/60s design case which is manufactured and hand-finished in Zurich, the model was also upgraded recently with a scratch and shatter-resistant sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating.
The watch has a screw caseback and screw-down crown; it is highly accurate and very robust as well as being water-resistant to 100m (330ft).
