This watch was one of three display watches at a trade show and also used to take some promotional images for a fashion magazine which appear here, it’s brand new and still has a 2-year guarantee, etc. It’s in perfect condition but was tried on a few times hence the reduction.
The MWC Mk III Automatic is delivered with both a black and a grey NATO strap and is a recreation of the classic 1950s NATO specification watches which were made under UK Ministry of Defence reference 6B/346 Mk XI. Although it is very similar in style to the watches made at that time it offers greatly improved accuracy through the use of a modern 24 jewel Automatic movement with 41-hour power reserve and hacking function.
The reality is that with the budgetary constraints no modern military forces could afford watches of this quality when cheaper models can meet the need. In the past, the world’s forces regularly purchased Rolex, IWC, Omega, Longines and various other well-known makes. Unfortunately, those days are well gone. Because many people still want a military-pattern watch that looks right even though it is made to a much higher specification we offer the MKIII. No expense has been spared to create a superior quality product from the high-performance movement to the brushed stainless steel 1950/60s design case which is manufactured and hand-finished in Zurich, the model was also upgraded recently with a scratch and shatter-resistant sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating.
The watch has a screw caseback and screw-down locking crown; it is highly accurate and very robust as well as being water-resistant to 100m (330ft).
