Product Details

SKU Code: W10B

The Automatic W10 is a robust and reliable timepiece, featuring a heavy stainless steel satin finish case made from Military Grade 316L stainless steel. Designed to endure the most extreme conditions, this watch includes a sweep second hand, a black dial, and luminous markings for enhanced visibility.

Equipped with a 24-jewel high-performance self-winding movement, the watch offers a 41-hour power reserve and the option to be hand-wound if not worn daily. An added advantage over older models is the screw caseback, which simplifies maintenance. Previous versions (as well as current CWC models) required removing the crystal for servicing, making it a challenging task for many watchmakers.

The history of the W10 models is quite fascinating. The hand-wound version of this automatic W10 was the predecessor to the quartz G10/98 models used by today's armed forces. Interestingly, in 1980, the British MOD planned to retain this case pattern with a quartz movement. However, the quartz movements available in 1980 were too thick to fit into the case. This led to the development of the G10 watches, which are still in military use today. The last two images show the government specification sheet from February 1980, requesting tenders for the W10 pattern case.
