Product Details

SKU Code: G1012/24

This MWC model with a U.S pattern 12/24 hour dial format is directly descended from the G10 watches we made back in the 1980s and retains the popular battery hatch which has been discarded by most other manufacturers. The battery hatch was originally employed because in the early days of quartz watches batteries only lasted around a year but with the battery on this watch now lasting around 5 years it is really just a design detail although it remains very popular for historical reasons. 

This watch also benefits from the use of Luminova for improved night time visibility. Luminova operates like a light battery. After sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light, they glow in the dark until the luminosity gradually diminishes although larger markings are often visible for the whole night. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any aging. The other advantage is that LumiNova pigments are totally free of radioactivity.

The MWC G10 is one of the companies most tried and tested G10 models and in its earlier variants has been in service for over 30 years. A large number of serving military have evaluated this well established model over lengthly periods in various deployments and all reports have been very favourable.  One factor which greatly contributes to this is the screw down locking crown which provides a high degree of protection when compared to watches with more vulnerable push in crowns.

The back of the case bears various contract markings and the watch is supplied with two current pattern 20mm NATO webbing straps in both black and grey variants.
