Product Details

SKU Code: G10/PB/2

This MWC G10 model is a direct descendant of the G10 watches we produced in the 1980s, retaining the iconic battery hatch—a feature many other military watch manufacturers have since abandoned. Initially essential for early quartz watches with short battery life, the hatch now serves as a nostalgic design element, maintaining its historical significance despite the modern battery lasting around five years.

Key Features:

  • Proven Reliability: This variant of MWC's G10 is one of the most tested and proven models, with versions in service for 40 years. Military personnel worldwide have praised its long-term reliability and durability.
  • Robust Design: The screw-down locking crown offers superior protection compared to more vulnerable push-in crowns, contributing significantly to the watch's durability. The watch also boasts a shatterproof and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, introduced in mid-2024.
  • Enhanced Nighttime Visibility: Equipped with Luminova, the watch ensures excellent visibility in low light. Luminova functions like a light battery: after exposure to sunlight or artificial light, the dial glows in the dark. Larger markings remain visible throughout the night, and this activation and emission process can be repeated indefinitely. Luminova pigments are completely free of radioactivity.
  • Rugged Build: Designed to withstand extreme conditions, the G10 battery hatch variant is exceptionally rugged. It comes with both a grey NATO webbing strap and a black strap, with additional straps available in various colors if desired. The back of the case features unique contract markings and a serial number.

Why Choose Sapphire Crystal?

Many customers inquire about the advantages of sapphire crystal over standard mineral crystal. Synthetic sapphire is the best material for watch crystals due to its strength and resistance to shattering and scratching, making it highly desirable for military and security personnel, police officers, and outdoor enthusiasts—who make up over 70% of our customers. Accidents that result in cracked crystals typically involve watches with mineral glass. Even our hardened mineral crystals cannot match the durability of sapphire under adverse conditions. The strength of sapphire crystals comes from a heat-treatment process that removes internal stresses, followed by the application of two layers of anti-reflective coating. This durability is why sapphire crystal is also used in the latest iPhones. However, sapphire crystal's superior quality comes at a higher price, which is why it's typically found in higher-end watches.
