This Limited Edition MWC Mk III Automatic in Gunmetal finish is limited to a production run of just 100 pieces but the basic design like all our MKIII variants is a recreation of the classic 1950s NATO specification watches which were made under UK Ministry of Defence reference 6B/346 Mk XI. Although it is very similar in style to the watches made at that time it offers greatly improved accuracy through the use of a modern 24 jewel Automatic movement. Just like many other watches such as the IWC MKXV it has true military looks and appeals to both serving and retired military personnel.
The reality is that with the budgetary constraints no modern military forces could afford watches of this quality when cheaper models can meet the need. In the past the worlds forces regularly purchased Rolex, IWC, Omega, Longines and various other well known makes. Unfortunatately those days are well gone. Because many people still want a military type watch that looks right even though it is made to a much higher specification we offer the MKIII. No expense has been spared to create a superior quality product from the high performance movement to the gunmetal finish 1950/60s design case which is manufactured and handfinished in ZÃ¼rich. The quality of finish is visibly superior to any currently issued 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 (300ft).
