MWC G10 300m / 1000ft Water resistant Stainless Steel Military Watch with Sapphire Crystal (Non Date) - Brand New Contract Surplus Watches
CONTRACT SURPLUS WATCHES
These traditional NATO pattern general service watches are brand new but contract surplus and were purchased by us at a military and security industries clearance sale. The watches are fully guaranteed but some have soiled cartons or quartermasters labels attached. Once these are sold there are unlikely to be any more because almost all the watches we buy in these sales are ex issue or defective where these are brand new and perfect.
SKU Code: G10/SS/300/ND
The MWC 300m / 1000ft water resistant G10 models in stainless steel have the highest water resistance rating of any G10 / General Service watch anywhere in the world. The watch has a highly scratch resistant sapphire crystal and an incredible 10 year battery life. Although this G10/98 Specification watch like many of MWC's other variants traces it's origins right back to their earliest G10 designs in the 1980's this model is totally updated and no other General Service watch currently in production can beat it's specification.
Currently MWC is the only contractor producing NATO specification infantry watches which meet a water resistance rating of 300m / 1000ft as opposed to the standard 30m or 50m (99ft or 165ft) rating of other manufacturers. Whilst the screw down crown and screw caseback greatly improve the water resistance the Ronda 715li movement with 10 year battery life significantly decreases the maintenance requirements of the watch. The watch has a sandblasted non reflective case, sandblasting is a process which was historically used on a large number of military watches from other manufacturers and has not been widely employed since the 1990s, although more costly to manufacture than other steel finishes it offers the best non reflective characteristics and is vastly superior to both standard brushed or satin stainless steel cases.
When MWC secured a contract to produce this model it was specified alongside the requirement for screw caseback, 300m water resistance, sapphire crystal and screw down crown that the case should be highly covert and non reflective and it was decided that sand blasting was the best process to meet that requirement because their client had specified it previously with a another watch which MWC produced for them. The end result of all these improvements in the specification is that the 300m water resistant G10 watches are totally unique, low maintenance and robust.
The watch is supplied with both a current issue grey NATO webbing strap and a black NATO strap although we can supply a wide range of straps in other colors if you wish to purchase another option.
The back of the case bears various contract markings in addition to the unique serial number.
