This MWC model retains the battery hatch which has been discarded by most other manufacturers and is a very useful feature which saves considerable expense when a replacement battery is required. This model has impact resistant glass, using actual glass means that the watch is very resistant to minor scratches and also gives the watch a much cleaner and more streamlined appearance. With the exception of ourselves most other manufacturers still continue to use plastic/acrylic glasses for their G10 watches which has the drawback that they are very easily scratched. The watch also uses Super-Luminova for improved night time visibility. Super-Luminova operates like a light battery. After sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light, they glow in the dark until the luminosity gradually diminishes although larger markings are often visible for the whole night. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any aging. The other advantage is that Super-LumiNova pigments are 100% free of radioactivity.
This variant of our G10 is one of our most tried and tested G10 models and in its earlier variants has been in service for 30 years. A large number of serving military on deployments over many years have evaluated this model with very favorable reports with regard to long term reliability and general durability.
The back of the case bears various contract markings and the watch is supplied with two current issue NATO webbing straps, one in black and one in grey.
