Product Details

SKU Code: T/1224/SL23PV

Introducing the latest MWC self-luminous G10 model from our Combat Elite range. This watch features a titanium case with 300m (1000ft) water resistance, a screw-down crown, a screw caseback, a scratch and shatter-resistant sapphire crystal, and Tritium GTLS light sources on the hands and markers. Additionally, the digits and triangle are printed with Luminova for maximum nighttime performance.

The special covert matte black non-reflective PVD finish used in this watch is often specified in military contracts for special forces units, anti-terrorist teams, and various covert operations. In the PVD process, the titanium is not black all the way through because the color is created by a special chemical PVD plating process. This process is vastly superior to painted finishes on lower-quality watches, which can easily fade or wear off. The PVD process means the color of the metal is altered at a molecular level, ensuring it does not deteriorate even during heavy usage, although it can be compromised if the case is badly damaged or subjected to severe abrasion.

The MWC 300m Black PVD titanium G10 with a Swiss Ronda 715li movement is one of our highest specification general service watches. This model combines the best of both new and traditional watchmaking technology. It retains all the popular features of the conventional 300m steel models, but the titanium case, ultra-low maintenance movement, cutting-edge self-luminous GTLS tritium vials, and the shatter and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal set it apart from its competitors. This makes it the ideal timepiece for military, law enforcement, and security applications.

This watch's specification follows American Military Specification Number: US MIL-W-46374F, and this model is the 12/24 hour North American market version. The self-luminous system makes the watch very easy to read at night, with a distinctive high visibility dial. The hour markers and the hour and minute hands each have a brightly glowing vial of tritium gas. While the vials contain radioactive gas, their combined amount is less than the personal limit of 25 millicuries (see U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission regulations 10 CFR 30.15). Military watches of this type are among the easiest to read in low light or total darkness, thanks to a self-activated light source that is 100 times brighter than traditional luminous paint. The light-emitting tubes require no battery power or any form of charging and never need servicing or maintenance.

Designed specifically for a government contract, these watches address the need for long-term storage without battery issues. The Ronda 715li movement, with its 10-year battery life, ensures the watch remains ready for use whenever needed.

The standard MWC G10 is one of the most tried and tested military watches, with earlier variants in service since the 1980s. This model shares a similar design to the steel models, but the titanium case elevates it into a distinct class of watches. The G10 Combat Elite range comes with a US pattern nylon military webbing strap. The reverse of the case features various contract markings.

*Many buyers inquire about the advantages of sapphire crystal compared to standard mineral crystal. The rationale behind sapphire crystal's superiority lies in its exceptional strength, shatter resistance, and scratch resistance. These attributes render it highly desirable for individuals with active lifestyles, particularly among military personnel, security professionals, and police officers, who constitute over 70% of our customer base.

Our observations reveal that over 90% of incidents resulting in cracked watch crystals involve timepieces with mineral glass crystals. Even hardened mineral crystals do not match sapphire's durability, especially in adverse conditions. Sapphire crystals derive their robustness from a meticulous process: post-manufacturing, the sapphire glass undergoes heat treatment to eliminate internal stresses that could compromise its strength. Subsequently, it is transformed into watch crystals and receives two layers of anti-reflective coating.

Undoubtedly, the premium quality of sapphire crystal comes with a corresponding price tag, making it a feature predominantly found in higher-end watches. This investment, however, pays dividends in terms of longevity, resilience, and overall performance, solidifying sapphire crystal's status as the top choice for discerning customers seeking unparalleled durability in their timepieces.
