We buy these watches from various defence auctions and other disposal sales and it's frequently the case that we find that there is actually nothing wrong with the watch but it has to be assumed it will have some form of fault though in most cases it's very minor or as described below. These watches are disposed of at low-cost because we find that one of the problems is pressure of time for our service staff in the UK and elsewhere and in most cases they have given them a quick check over and nothing is immediately apparent though we have to assume that there is either no real fault with the watch or something will reveal itself over time in which case it’s normally a simple case of a service, repair or battery exchange depending on the exact model
Condition: Good Apart from Issue Below
Fault: Watch is running but has been impacted and the crystal is damaged at 12 essentially it needs just a new crystal and a checkover.

The Limited Edition MWC Mk III Automatic in stainless steel is a combination of design ingredients taken from the classic 1950s NATO specification watches which were made under UK Ministry of Defence reference 6B/346 Mk XI fused with modern features such as a high water resistance rating of 100m and tritium GTLS tubes for unbeatable night performance. Although this watches case design is very similar in style to the watches made in the past this model utilizes a modern low maintenance Ronda 715li quartz movement with 10 year battery life.
The reality is that with current budgetary constraints no modern military forces can afford watches of the quality of even our standard MKIII models when cheaper options can meet the needs but these models were designed based on suggestions from many clients who are either retired or serving military or working in Law Enforcement, Personal Protection or Security.
Its interesting to keep in mind that in the past the worlds forces regularly purchased Rolex, IWC, Omega, Longines and various other well known makes but unfortunately those days are long gone. This watch was created to be superior to any currently issues General Service Watch and no expense has been spared to create a superior quality product to offer the best of both worlds from the high performance modern movement to the brushed stainless steel 1950/60s design case which is manufactured and handfinished in Zurich. The quality of finish is visibly superior to any current military watches.
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).
