MWC G10BH 50m Water Resistant Military Watch
This MWC model retains the battery hatch which has been discarded by most other manufacturers and is a very useful feature which saves considerable expense when a replacement battery is required. This model has impact resistant glass, using actual glass means that the watch is very resistant to minor scratches and also gives the watch a much cleaner and more streamlined appearance. With the exception of ourselves most other manufacturers such as CWC still continue to use plastic/acrylic glasses for their G10 watches which have the drawback that they are very easily scratched. The watch also uses Super-Luminova for improved night time visibility. Super-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 ageing. The other advantage is that Super-LumiNova pigments are absolutely free of radioactivity.
Our G10 is one of our most tried and tested G10 models and in its earlier variants has been in service for 30 years. This model has also been progressively updated and improved over the years with features such as screw in pins which give the watch all of the advantages of fixed pins with the flexibility of spring pins when it comes to strap changes etc. A large number of soldiers who were deployed in both Iraq and other locations have evaluated this model over many years with very favourable reports concerning long term reliability and durability.
The back of the case bears various contract markings and the watch is supplied with both a black and a grey current issue NATO webbing strap
