Description

The Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel is inspired by the historic Marathon GG-W-113 field watch, but also fulfills the latest government specified military standard of MIL-PRF-46374G, Type I, Class 1.

Built with a case made from 316L surgical grade stainless steel, and using the venerable ETA-2801 movement, the Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel is a vintage inspired timepiece that is as good looking as it is durable.

Packing features essential for military operations, such as a 24 hour dial, nylon strap, drilled lugs, hacking seconds, constant glow tritium illumination tubes, and much more, the Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel is a tough yet beautiful watch with a robust yet high quality hand winding movement.

Inspired by the Marathon GG-W-113 field watch used throughout the 1980s by the US Army, the Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel revives this vintage style with an update of modern materials and standards. The Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel is manufactured from 316L surgical grade stainless steel with a satinized graphite grey finish, giving the look of a vintage field watch with the proper functionality and durability of a modern one. The crystal (glass lens) of the Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel is made from sapphire, as sapphire crystals are the ultimate in scratch resistance, overall durability, and clarity of dial viewing, essential factors for military personnel. To assist in low light viewing, the dial of the Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel uses tritium tubes for the hour indices as well as hour and minute hands. Tritium is a self illuminating gas which will provide a 24/7 glow without the need for charging by an external light source.

Own a piece of both military and horological history with the Marathon General Purpose Mechanical in Stainless Steel.
