Product Details

SKU: SM/AV/PVD

This MWC classic aviator model is 100m water-resistant, featuring a covert black non-reflective stainless steel case with a screw-down crown and case back.

While its design is reminiscent of aviator watches from the 1950s, it incorporates modern technology for enhanced accuracy, including a 24-jewel NH35 Automatic movement with a 41-hour power reserve and a hacking function. Additionally, it boasts a shatter and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The special matte black non-reflective PVD finish (Physical Vapor Deposition) used on this watch is often specified by special forces units, anti-terrorist units, and police forces for covert operations. The PVD process chemically plates the steel, creating a color that is vastly superior to painted finishes found on budget watches, which can fade or rub off over time. The PVD finish alters the metal's color at a molecular level, ensuring it remains intact even during heavy usage, although it can be damaged if the case is gouged or heavily abraded. Typically, the PVD finish lasts for years; we often see watches we made 30 years ago with intact PVD plating that has stood the test of time.

Why Choose Sapphire Crystal?

Many customers ask about the benefits of sapphire crystal over a standard mineral crystal. Synthetic sapphire is the best material for watch crystals due to its exceptional strength and resistance to shattering and scratching. These characteristics make it ideal for military and security personnel, police officers, and individuals with active outdoor lifestyles, who make up over 70% of our customers.

When accidents result in cracked crystals, over 90% involve watches with mineral glass crystals. Even hardened mineral crystals do not compare to sapphire for durability under adverse conditions. Sapphire crystals are strong because they undergo a heat-treatment process that removes internal stresses, which can cause weakness. After manufacturing, the sapphire glass is made into watch crystals, and two layers of anti-reflective coating are applied. Interestingly, sapphire crystal is now used on the latest iPhones. Due to its higher cost, sapphire crystal is typically found only in higher-end watches.
