Product Details

SKU Code: G1012/24PVD

This model, featuring a U.S. pattern 12/24 hour dial format, is a direct descendant of the G10 watches we produced in the 1980s. It retains the popular battery hatch, a feature many other manufacturers have since abandoned. Initially, the battery hatch was crucial because early quartz watch batteries lasted only about a year. Today, with batteries lasting around five years, the hatch is more of a nostalgic design element, still highly valued for its historical significance.

The watch benefits from the use of Luminova for enhanced nighttime visibility. Luminova functions like a light battery: after sufficient exposure to sunlight or artificial light, the dial glows in the dark until the luminosity gradually fades. Larger markings often remain visible throughout the night. This activation and emission process is repeatable indefinitely, and Luminova pigments are entirely free of radioactivity.

The special covert matte black non-reflective PVD finish is frequently specified in military contracts for various special forces units, anti-terrorist units, and covert operations. Unlike painted finishes on lower-quality watches that can fade or rub off, the PVD process alters the steel's color at a molecular level, ensuring it won't deteriorate even under heavy usage. However, extreme damage like deep gouges or severe abrasion against rocks can still affect the finish.

Our G10 is one of our most tested and proven models, with earlier versions in service for over 30 years. Numerous military personnel have evaluated this model and its predecessors in various deployments, consistently providing favorable feedback. This model is an ideal choice if you seek a solid black stainless steel military watch. The screw-down locking crown significantly contributes to its durability by offering superior protection compared to more vulnerable push-in crowns.

The G10 comes with a black 20mm NATO webbing strap. The back of the case bears various contract markings, and each watch is serial numbered.
