SKU Code: G1012/24
This MWC general service watch in 12/24 hour dial format model retains the battery hatch which has been discarded by most other manufacturers. 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 than perspex / acrylic crystals which with the exception of ourselves most other manufacturers still continue to use for many of their G10 watches. 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.
The MWCÂ G10 is one of the companiesÂ most tried and tested G10 models and in its earlier variants has been in service for overÂ 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.Â One factor which greatlyÂ contributes to this is the screw down locking crown whichÂ 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.
