The Marathon Military Navigator Pilots Quartz is a highly accurate watch built to strict military specifications. It was first developed in 1986 as a request by the Kelley Air Force Base for a watch which could be used in situations a pilot or parachutist would encounter.
Made from a special fibershell case that is water resistant (6 ATM), sweat and shock resistant, as well as lightweight this watch is extremely durable.
Included with the Military Navigator Pilots Quartz is a 20 millimetre nylon strap made under MIL-S-46383B, Type III specifications. The watch uses an acrylic crystal which is resistant to rapid changes in pressure, preventing the watch’s crystal to shatter.
Powered by a Swiss made, high torque, 3 jewel ETA F06 Quartz movement, 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 is made in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland.
To assist in low light viewing, the dial 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 recharging.
