Product Details

This MWC classic aviator model is 100m water resistant with a solid stainless steel case and screw-down crown and case back. 
Although it is very similar in style to the watches made way back in the 1950s, these watches use up-to-date modern technology with greatly improved accuracy through the use of a modern 24 jewel NH35 Automatic movement with up to 41-hour power reserve and a hacking function plus the benefits of a shatter and scratch resistant sapphire crystal.

* A lot of people ask us what are the benefits of sapphire crystal over a standard mineral crystal? The answer is that synthetic sapphire is by far the best material for watch crystals because it is very strong and also shatter and scratch-resistant, these characteristics make it very appealing to military and security personnel, police officers and people who lead active outdoor lifestyles, these groups account for over 70% of our customers. To get things into perspective we find that when clients have accidents with watches resulting in a cracked crystal over 90% usually watches with mineral glass crystals, even factoring in that we use hardened mineral crystals they still do not come close to sapphire for durability under adverse conditions. The reason that sapphire crystals are so strong is that after the sapphire glass is manufactured it is also heat-treated to remove its internal stresses—which can cause weakness—it is then made into the watch crystals and two layers of anti-reflective coating are applied, interestingly sapphire crystal is now used on the latest iPhone. Of course, sapphire crystal comes at a price, hence you find that it's normally only fitted to higher-end watches.
