MWC G10 100m Solar Powered Titanium Military Watch with Luminova
SKU Code: T/G10/SOL/L
This is the latest MWC G10 model from our Combat Elite series in a heavy duty titanium case with 100m (330ft) Water Resistance rating, screw down crown, screw caseback and unlimited battery life due to the sophisticated solar powered movement which has super accuracy and is charged by either artificial light or daylight. When fully charged the watch has a 4 month power reserve so even if you only wear it for a few weeks a year it will keep running for several months as opposed to around 36 hours with a standard mechanical automatic watch. You will have plenty of warning when the power reserve is low because the second hand will start moving at two-second intervals instead of the normal one-second intervals, to charge the watch it just needs to be exposed to light either by wearing it or leaving it near a light in the house or on a window sill. The great thing with this type of watch is that generally it doesn't require any maintenance at all because there is always sufficient light to ensure it has an adequate charge unless you leave it in a drawer somewhere dark.
We designed these watches specifically for a government contract when it was pointed out they would not be used continuously and for this reason the ability to be kept in storage and issued when required whilst still remain accurate and ready for use when needed was a vital consideration. Clearly this makes sense because if the watches are not being used all the time the last thing a government department or military unit would want is to remove them from the stores only to find that the batteries are flat! These watches solve that problem because there are no batteries to worry about and there are therefore few circumstances where they can't be brought into service at short notice.
With such a sophisticated movement the MWC G10 SL SOL is currently by far the highest specification G10 military watch available from any manufacturer and is among the two most sophisticated models made by ourselves the other being the Hybrid titanium models which we manufacture.
The standard MWC G10 is one of the most tried and tested models and in its earlier variants has been in service for almost 30 years, this model shares a similar design to the steel models but the titanium case means this watch is the most high quality G10 model available anywhere in the world.
