Product Details


The MWC Kampfschwimmer (Military Diver) models are part of MWC's latest heavy-duty range of diver watches, designed with a significantly more robust case than most other military dive watches. These models also offer additional crown protection, an impact-resistant sapphire crystal, and a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel. The Kampfschwimmer range features a wider 24mm strap (compared to the standard 20mm) and a thicker bezel design for easier grip, which was specified in a procurement contract for police and military divers, as well as for use in inflatables operating in cold and extreme environments.

This specific model, introduced in January 2019, has a European NATO pattern dial and is finished in brushed stainless steel. It is equipped with solid strap bars, a feature sometimes required for challenging military and tactical environments. This model is identical to the XLD/AU/12/SSPVB variant, with the exception of the solid strap bars.

Benefits of Sapphire 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 highly appealing to military and security personnel, police officers, and those with active outdoor lifestyles, accounting for over 70% of our customers.

To provide perspective, in accidents resulting in a cracked crystal, over 90% involve watches with mineral glass crystals. Even hardened mineral crystals do not match the durability of sapphire. Heat-treated to remove internal stresses, sapphire crystals are then coated with two layers of anti-reflective coating, making them even stronger. Although more expensive, sapphire crystal is typically found on higher-end watches and is also used in the latest iPhones.

These attributes make the MWC Kampfschwimmer an excellent choice for those seeking a robust, reliable, and stylish timepiece suitable for both professional diving and demanding everyday use.
