MWC G10 50m Water Resistant PVD SAR / Coastguard Watch with Battery Hatch, Solid Strap Bars and 60 Month Battery Life
SKU Code: G1/SAR
The design of our PVD plated G10 Stealth is unique, not only have we retained the battery hatch on the caseback but MWC was the first contractor to produce standard European Infantry specification watches in a non reflective PVD plated black finish. The special matt black finish is required by many special forces units. The steel is not black all the way through because the black finish is created by a special chemical PVD plating process which is vastly superior to the painted finish used on some watches which can quickly fade or rub off. This PVD process means that the color of the steel is altered at a molecular level, therefore it will not deteriorate even during heavy usage although it can be destroyed if the case is badly damaged by a piece of metal being gouged out or if the case is worn down by really heavy abrasion against rocks or something similar.
If you are looking for a solid black stainless steel military watch then this model is potentially the ideal choice. One factor which greatly contributes to this is the screw down locking crown which provides a high degree of protection when compared to watches with more vulnerable push in crowns.
The G10 50m Stealth is very rugged and is designed to survive the most extreme of conditions. It is supplied with a current issue black NATO webbing strap although we can supply most other colors as additional straps in the NATO strap section such as grey, grey/black known as "James Bond pattern", navy or olive.
The back of the case bears various contract markings in addition to the watches serial number.
