The Marathon General Purpose Field Watch in Steel is a re-interpretation of the historic Marathon GG-W-113 field watch used throughout the 1980s by the US Army. It is built with a case made from 316L surgical grade stainless steel with a satinized graphite grey, non-reflective, finish. The glass lens is made from sapphire crystals to provide ultimate scratch resistance, overall durability, and clarity of dial viewing, all essential factors for military personnel.
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.
The Marathon General Purpose Field Watch in Steel features a wind-up ETA 2801 movement or a high torque ETA Quartz F06 movement for accurate and reliable timekeeping.
It is a tough yet beautiful watch - packing features essential for military operations, such as a 24-hour dial, nylon strap, drilled lugs, hacking seconds and much more.
The return of a classic. This watch is sure to please as a tool watch or casual accessory for everyday wear.
