Marathon Automatic and Hand Winding General Purpose Watch with Tritium Illumination #WW194003

The new GPM uses a Seiko NH “Dual Winding Movement” (DWM) and can be wound both by manually winding the crown or by use of the automatic self-winding rotor (transferred energy caused by the movement of the wrist). Once fully wound the GPM will run for approximately 40 hours without the need to be wound again, or can be worn to wind using the automatic self-winding rotor.

The case of the GPM is made from high-impact fibreshell, which does not sacrifice quality or durability while keeping weight low. Applied on the dial, minute, and hour hands are self contained Tritium gas filled tubes which ensure a constant glow for maximum low-light visibility. Tritium is a trusted source of illumination for military equipment, from watches to aeronautical displays, firearm sights, and binoculars. Tritium tubes glow on their own without the need for charging by an external light source, and will not fade in brightness making it an ideal configuration for nighttime or low light operation.

The crystal (lens) of the new GPM is made from sapphire ensuring the highest possible scratch resistance, legibility, and durability. This new sapphire crystal is 3mm thick, providing added durability and impact resistance. Adding to the overall durability and reliability is the upgraded water resistance on the new GPM giving it a water resistant of 5ATM (50 meters/164 feet), making sure that it will not yield to the elements. Included with the new GPM is a one piece nylon military strap which is made in accordance with MIL-S-46383B Type II and provides comfort and durability while remaining lightweight. Also available from Marathon are extra nylon straps in various colors to personalize your GPM.

Overall assembly of the watch is performed in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland, combining the accuracy of a Marathon designed Japanese movement with reliability and Swiss craftsmanship to bring you a superb watch. The Marathon GPM is a watch that will provide you with years of accuracy, reliability, and enjoyment!

    Brighter and more accurate than you think

    Posted by Steve Walker on Sep 11th 2020

    What a pleasure to learn about watches and then to have such a wide selection. I have small wrists so this Marathon fit the ticket. It is running accurate to within 5 seconds a day and it is true, as your eyes adjust to darkness the Tritium is bright. Thanks for offering it, shipping it quickly and at an affordable price.

    Marathon General Purpose Watch

    Posted by Kevin D. on Jul 3rd 2020

    Watch arrive quickly after ordering it. The tritium tubes provided better than expected illumination in mid light and as expected Illumination in darkness. The only thing that I personally will change is the watch band, since the one that is comes with is fairly stiff on the width edges and uncomfortable because of that to me.

    Great Watch

    The watch is lightweight and comfortable. The tritium is perfect for low light and night situations. The best price online and shipping cost to Australia.

    Tough and characterful little nugget!

    Posted by Scott JN on Jul 30th 2019

    Pulled the trigger on a bit of a whim after watching Marc's affordable field watch video, and realising this little Marathon was very well spec'd for the price (automatic, sapphire, interesting history). I liked it immediately out of the (tiny!) box, there's an air of class & feels heavier than you expect for its size, though the weight vanishes on wrist with the compact dimensions & super light nylon. I like how the matte grey on the bezel and crown breaks up the black resin case, preventing it from looking plasticky. The radioactive hazard symbol lends a bit of zombie apocalypse fun. It may be standard military issue but don't underestimate how many outfits it will complement - I'm wearing it EVERYWHERE. My wrist is 6.5inch & it looks sweet, I could imagine it starting to get lost on a really big dude tho. Great watch & experience with Long Island - I've finally gone sub 38mm & may never go back!

    Nice watch

    It is fit to my thin wrist and as bright as it can be known the time in dawn.

    Great watch!

    Because I take out my contact lenses at night, this is a great watch to wear to bed. It's extremely light weight and the tritium illumination makes it easy to read.
