This W10 was the predecessor to the quartz G10/98 models used by the armed forces of today. This model is a significantly updated version of the original 1960/70s model but it retains the original outward appearance. The watch has a significant advantage over the older models in that it has a screw caseback for easier maintenance - earlier versions (as well as current CWC models) are serviced by removing the glass which made servicing impractical except by returning them to the manufacturer.
The W10 has a heavy stainless steel satin finish case made from Military Grade 316L stainless steel, it is very robust and tough and built to endure the most extreme of conditions, sweep second hand, black dial and luminous markings. Please note The watch uses Luminous paint although the watch carries a T for historical accuracy though no radioactive material is contained within the watch. This watch is water resistant to 3 ATM.
