SKUÂ Code: G10/PV/300/ND
The MWC 300m / 1000ft water resistant G10 models in black PVD 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 our other variants traces it’s origins right back to our earliest G10 designs in the 1980s this model is totally updated and no other General Service watch currentlyÂ in production can beat its specification.Â
Currently, MWC is the only contractor producing NATO specification infantry watches which meet a water resistance rating of 300m / 1000ftÂ 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 decreasesÂ the maintenance requirements of the watch. The watch has a sandblasted non-reflective black 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 we secured a contract to produce this model it was specified alongside the requirements that it be covert that it had aÂ screw caseback, 300m water resistance, sapphire crystal and screw-down crown. The end result of all these improvementsÂ meansÂ thatÂ the specificationÂ ofÂ our 300m water resistant G10 watches is totally unique, low maintenanceÂ andÂ highly durable.
The watch isÂ supplied with a black NATO strap although we can supply a wide range of straps in other coloursÂ if you wish to purchase another option.
