MWC 300m / 1000ft Black PVD Hybrid Military Divers Watch - Might Need Capacitor Recharge or Replacement
UNDER HALF NORMAL RETAIL PRICE BUT BRAND NEW!
Condition: Brand new with original packaging etc but have been in storage and might need a thorough capacitor recharge (the capacitor charges when you wear the watch) or in the worst case scenario a new capacitor which can be fitted by any Seiko or Pulsar service center one option is http://phoenixwatchrepairs.co.uk who know these watches, the average cost is $23.00 / £17.50. We have sold quite a few of these watches and most have no issue but because they are in our UK shipping centre we would have to get them returned for checking so as a result have simply discounted them.
Fault: No significant fault except the capacitor might need a though charge (through wearing the watch) or replacement. The only reason there might be an issue with the capacitor is because the watches have been in storage but its a routine service item.

This PVD non reflective black divers watch is one of the latest divers watches in MWC's range with 300m (1000ft) Water Resistance rating, screw down crown, screw caseback, Super Luminova and a sophisticated hybrid movement which combines the characteristics of an automatic watch with the benefits of a highly accurate quartz movement.
The MWC Hybrid range use a special rechargeable Lithium–Titanate power cell, this sophisticated hybrid movement combines the characteristics of an automatic watch because it is charged by wrist movement with quartz accuracy. The Lithium–Titanate rechargeable cell is vastly superior to a normal watch battery where new batteries are often needed at regular intervals. When fully charged the watch has a 6 month power reserve so even if you only wear it for a few weeks a year it will keep running for 6 months as opposed to around 36 hours with a standard mechanical automatic watch. You will also have plenty of warning when the power reserve is low because the second hand will start moving at two-second intervals instead of the normal one-second intervals, the watch will run down in approximately 12 hours once this happens unless it is worn (or put on a watch winder) to get the Lithium–Titanate cell charged up again. The watch also has a hacking feature for synchronization or to enable you to stop the watch running and conserve power if it won't be used for an extended period.
With such a sophisticated movement the MWC Hybrid divers watch is currently among the highest specification divers watch of its type available from any manufacturer. Essentially this model combines the best of new and traditional watchmaking technology. It combines features from the conventional automatic and quartz models with a hybrid ultra low maintenance movement.
MWC designed these watches specifically for a government contract when it was pointed out they would not be used continuously and for this reason the ability to be kept in storage and issued when required whilst still remain accurate and ready for use when needed was a vital consideration. Clearly this makes sense because if the watches are not being used all the time the last thing a government department or military unit would want is to remove them from the stores only to find that the batteries are flat! Provided the hacking function is used the watches can be utilized at very short notice and once on the wrist will charge themselves continuously.
The standard MWC divers watch is one of MWC's most tried and tested models and in its alternative quartz variants has been in service for several decades. This new model offers an alternative to buyers who want something with cutting edge technology and very low maintenance.
The watch is supplied with a black NATO strap. The reverse of the case carries various contract markings.
