See final photo in the images which is a screenshot from the manufacturers website. This Military Industries General Service watch with fixed lugs retains the battery hatch which has been discarded by many other manufacturers although it's a useful feature which saves considerable expense when a replacement battery is needed. This model has impact resistant glass, using actual glass means that the watch is very resistant to minor scratches and also gives the watch a much cleaner and more streamlined appearance than the earlier models with acrylic crystal. The watch uses Super-Luminova for improved night time visibility although the colour of the pigment resembles the earlier tritium watches and because the design is based on the easiest General Service watches of this type we have used the encircled T for historical reasons rather than the L normally used on modern Luminova military watches.
Super-Luminova operates like a light battery. After sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light, they glow in the dark until the luminosity gradually diminishes although larger markings are often visible for the whole night. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any aging. The other advantage is that Super-Luminova pigments are 100% free of radioactivity. This watch is built to a tried and tested specification used by various manufacturers for over 30 years and this model is very close to the original 1980s watches except that the water resistance is now higher, it has a glass crystal and heavy duty case back.
This particular watch is the branded variant which Military Industries produced these after a request from a number of military outlets which required this particular design. The back of the case bears various contract markings and the watch is supplied with two current issue webbing straps, one in black and one in grey. Case Diameter: 40mm Exc Crown and 42mm Inc Crown. Case Material: 316L Stainless Steel.
Battery: 371 with around 40 months battery life. Movement: Ronda 705/715 with date window. Strap: 2 x 20mm military webbing straps (one black and one grey). We are fully authorised dealers for any of the Brands which we sell.
