Marathon (Medium) Swiss Made, Arctic TSAR Quartz Military Divers Watch with Sapphire Crystal #WW194027-WD

The Marathon Artic TSAR Quartz Medium is a dive watch built to ISO 6425 standards. This watch is a smaller, medium sized, version of Marathon’s line of diver’s watches. It is nicknamed the the Arctic TSAR due to its crisp white dial. The watch is perfect for someone who wants a tough, reliable, and military issue dive watch, yet prefers a reduced size. It is just as tough as its larger brothers.

The Arctic TSAR has a water resistance down to 30 ATM - 300 meters (1000 feet) underwater. Built from 316L surgical grade stainless steel, the Arctic TSAR Medium is a high quality, purpose built watch that will reliably accompany you on any adventure you may embark on. The Diver’s Quartz Medium comes with a scratch resistant, sapphire glass crystal.

The Arctic TSAR includes a vulcanized rubber strap. When first worn, the strap will have no holes to put the buckle through and instead must be carefully pierced. This can be done to create a custom fit for superior comfort. The Diver’s Quartz Medium is made in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing. Inside the Diver’s Quartz Medium is a Swiss made, high torque, 3 jewel ETA F06 Quartz movement. The ETA F06 movement is accurate to -0.3/+0.5 seconds per day and, it includes an End of Life (EOL) indicator that will advance the seconds hand once every 4 seconds to inform you that a battery change is needed.

The Arctic TSAR Quartz Medium uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations, a Tritium gas tube is placed on each hour marker as well as the seconds and minute hands. Tritium tubes are self illuminating gas tubes which contain an isotope of hydrogen, meaning they will not dull down in brightness like normal photoluminescent paint which requires an external light source to create a glow. Note: MaraGlo luminous material is used for the 12 hour bezel marker.

To maintain proper tracking for maintenance, each Arctic TSAR Quartz Medium comes individually numbered and engraved with a serial number.

    Ditch the G-Shock

    Posted by Ben on May 18th 2021

    Ditch the oversized g-shocks and get this. It's a great size and very comfortable. Excellent prize with quick and easy shipping. Thanks, Marc (Mark?)!

    While I have quite a few mechanical and quartz watches, at age 74 I realized I really needed just one very high quality, extremely rugged and accurate watch I could wear all the time, every day, no matter what activities I would decide to engage in. It should be comfortable, very accurate, no larger than about 39mm, and “built like a tank”. The very best watch buying experience I have ever had has always been from Marc at Long Island Watch. The high quality brand I settled on was Marathon, and Marc’s long established First Class reputation as a professional retailer par excellance’ made the sales choice easy. From the time I clicked the PayPal “Pay now” button, my Marathon (Medium) Swiss Made, Arctic TSAR Quartz Military Divers Watch with Sapphire Crystal arrived in less than five business days. The comfort, build and performance quality is five stars! Have worn it continuously for a month with a time variation of only two seconds from when I set it. I could not be more pleased. Thank You Marc!

    Fantastic, with only a minor gripe

    Posted by Owen N. on Mar 31st 2021

    Bought this watch, as a gift for myself for my birthday. Its a great little watch. I thought about the full size GSAR but I felt 41mm was just a smidge too big. Its small, but feels bigger than it is which I like. Rubber strap is very comfortable, and for some reason, has a pleasant faint vanilla smell to it. No idea why but I'm not complaining. Now my gripe with this watch is the usual quartz gripe. The seconds hand doesn't hit all the indices exactly. That's something I'd expect on a $50 watch I'd find at a big box store, but when I'm dropping $500+ i feel that the QC should be a bit tighter and the second's hand should be hitting properly. Aside from that though, the watch is fantastic. Tritium indices are fainter than one would expect, but still very legible in little to no light.

    Little Gem

    Posted by Deri Mick on Apr 26th 2020

    This watch is a perfect work watch. The medium size keeps it from being banged around. It is built like a tank, but the edges are soft and rounded. You can feel the quality, and the time and effort it took to get the details right.
