MWC G10 100m Water resistant Military Watch with Screw Down Crown and 10 Year Battery Life
MWC's G10 watch has a water resistance rating to a depth of 100m/330ft as well as a larger case diameter than most competitors. Although this G10/98 Specification watch traces its origins right back to MWC's earliest G10 designs the 100m water-resistant models are twice as water-resistant compared to other leading G10 suppliers. In addition to the increased water resistance rating, the watch also has a larger case diameter, reduced overall thickness and a sandblasted case finish. Sandblasting is a process used on a large number of current military watches from other manufacturers and has not been widely employed on G10 models since the 1990s. When MWC secured a contract to produce this model it was specified alongside the requirement for screw case back, 100m water resistance and screw-down crown that the case should be 100% covert and non-reflective and it was decided that sandblasting was the best process to meet that requirement as well as providing a very robust and durable finish. The end result is that their 100m water resistant G10 watches are totally unique because MWC is the only contractor producing standard European Infantry specification watches which meet a water resistance rating of 100m (330ft) as opposed to the standard 50m rating of other manufacturers. This new model also incorporates a high-performance Ronda 715li movement which has a battery life of up to 10 years.
The G10 100m variant is very rugged and is designed to survive the most extreme of conditions. It is supplied with a current issue grey NATO webbing strap and also a black strap although we can supply most other colours at no additional cost such as Grey/Black known as James Bond pattern, Navy or Olive. The back of the case bears various contract markings in addition to the unique serial number.
