Ex Issue W10 Run but Might Need a Service

We bought a small quantity of these brand new W10 watches at a military and defence industries sale. The watches are perfect except for one minor issue which is slight imperfections on the hands, some of the watches have marks which are barely noticeable and the final image shows one of the worst examples which is now sold but the remainder are less significant. Once the watch is on the wrist the appearance of the marks is not at all apparent so at half the normal price they are a bargain.

 

SKU Code: MWC W10

The hand wound version of 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 another 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 AW10 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.
