Watch Description

Type G10SL and P650/6500 are authentic US - military watches designed and built according to specifications defined in MIL-W-46374 F. These are the first military timepieces ever to be equipped with the patented mb-microtec H3 permanent light technology. Thousands of these two H3 models have been issued to the men and women of the US Armed Forces. Now, also available to civilians with the only departure from the military version being the addition of a date window - the non dated version is also available if preferred.

The MWC G10SL/S is a self luminous infantry watch which is equipped with a special tritium light source. The G10SL is very easy to reas and carries standard 12 hours markings with 24 hour annotation. The distinctive radioactive tri-foil symbol appears on the watch face, as does the H3 (Tritium) notation, because the hour positions, the zero position on the unidirectional bezel, and the hour and minute hands each have a brightly glowing vial of tritium gas. Taken together they contain less thatn the personal limit of 25 millicuries (U.S Nuclear Regulatory Commission regulations 10 CFR 20.15.).

These tiny, airtight Tritium vials, sealed under high pressure are 100 times brighter than any other current illumination system such as luminova, bright enough in fact to read a map if the watch is held close enough.

If your preference is for the classic G10 design but with this cutting edge military technology then this watch is the one for you.

This watch has an extended 40 month battery life and is light weight at only 34g.
