The Marathon General Purpose Mechanical is a highly accurate watch built to strict military standards under MIL-PRF-46374G, Type I, Class 1. Designed for field use by infantry or other military personnel, the General Purpose Mechanical is built to withstand the needs of infantry, as well as civilians looking for a perfect casual watch.


Developed by Marathon Watch Company as a field watch to be issued to military personnel, the General Purpose Mechanical is a watch that meets all the requirements of a true military field watch. Made from a highly durable, impact resistant fibershell case that is water resistant to 3 atmospheres (30 meters - 100 feet), sweat resistant and will not yield to the elements. The fibershell case of the General Purpose Mechanical is also a passive matte finish, as to not give away infantry position through reflections which would occur on a normal metal case. Fibershell also is an extremely lightweight material, an important factor on the battlefield where every ounce counts. The General Purpose Mechanical uses a crystal which is durable against impacts and will not shatter if dropped. The back of the General Purpose Mechanical is made of 316L surgical stainless steel, a steel with low carbon content that will not corrode over time.


The General Purpose Mechanical is made in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing. The General Purpose Mechanical uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations, a gas tube is placed on each hour marker and hand. Tritium tubes are self illuminating gas tubes which contain an isotope of hydrogen, meaning they will not dull down in brightness like normal photoluminescent paint which requires an external light source to create a glow.


The General Purpose Mechanical combines military durability with Swiss craftsmanship to provide an accurate timepiece that will satisfy you for years of daily use.
