This retro pattern MWC military watch is based on the typical designs used by the British Army in the 1960s, it has been upgraded from acrylic to a glass crystal to enable it to reach modern water resistance standards. The watch offers the benefit of retaining the original outward appearance whilst having the advantage of a few discreet updates to improve its suitability for use on a day to day basis. One major upgrade is the hybrid mechanical/quartz movement. MWC hybrid watches essentially combine the best of new and traditional watchmaking technology. They encompass features from both our conventional automatic and quartz models resulting in a hybrid ultra-low maintenance movement. The hybrid movement has a battery powering the movement through coils and a quartz oscillator, but the hands are mechanically actuated and controlled. Essentially the movement is mechanical except it’s powered by a battery and regulated by a crystal the only thing it doesn’t have is a spring. This watch offers the ideal choice for buyers who would prefer the sweep secondhand as seen in automatic watches with the hassle-free maintenance benefits of a quartz watch.
