The Marathon Military Navigator Pilots Quartz is a highly accurate watch built to strict military specifications.
The Marathon Military Navigator Pilots was first developed in 1986. It was made as a request by Kelley Air Force Base for a watch which could be used in situations a pilot or parachutist would encounter. Marathon fulfilled this request with the Navigator Pilots Quartz. Made from a special fibershell case that is water resistant to 6 ATM, sweat and shock resistant, as well as lightweight. Included with the Military Navigator Pilots Quartz is a 20 millimeter width nylon strap made under MIL-S-46383B, Type III. The watch uses an acrylic crystal resistant to rapid changes in pressure that would cause a watch’s crystal to shatter.
The Navigator Pilots Quartz is made in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland. Powered by a Swiss made, high torque, 3 jewel ETA F06 Quartz movement, as a result the Navigator Pilots Quartz guarantees you a high degree of accuracy in timekeeping. The ETA F06 is accurate to -0.3/+0.5 seconds per day and includes an End of Life (EOL) indicator. The Navigator Pilots Quartz uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations; therefore, a tube is placed on each hour marker, hand, and at the 12 hour marker in the bezel. Tritium tubes are self illuminating gas tubes which contain an isotope of hydrogen that glows consistently for years.
The Navigator Pilots Quartz combines military durability with Swiss craftsmanship in a timepiece that will satisfy you for years.
