Marathon High Torque Quartz Military General Purpose SS Watch with Tritium Illumination #WW194015SS

Marathon Stainless Steel General Purpose Quartz in Stainless Steel is inspired by the historic Marathon GG-W-113 field watch, but also fulfills the latest government specified military standard of MIL-PRF-46374G, Type I, Class 1. Designed for field use by infantry or other military personnel, the General Purpose Quartz is built to withstand the needs of infantry, as well as civilians looking for a perfect casual watch.

Built with a case made from 316L surgical grade stainless steel, and using the high torque 3 jewel ETA F06 movement, the Marathon General Purpose Quartz in Stainless Steel is a vintage inspired timepiece that is as good looking as it is durable. The Marathon Stainless Steel General Purpose Quartz comes packed with features essential for military operations, such as a 24 hour dial, one piece nylon strap, drilled lugs, a high-torque high-accuracy movement, constant glow tritium illumination tubes, and much more.

Inspired by the Marathon GG-W-113 field watch used throughout the 1980s by the US Army, the Marathon General Purpose Quartz in Stainless Steel revives this vintage style with an update of modern materials and standards. It’s manufactured from 316L surgical grade stainless steel with a satinized graphite grey, non-reflective, finish, giving the look of a vintage field watch with the proper functionality and durability of a modern one. The crystal (glass lens) is made from sapphire, as sapphire crystals provide the ultimate in scratch resistance, overall durability, and clarity of dial viewing, essential factors for military personnel.

To assist in low light viewing, the dial uses tritium tubes for the hour indices as well as hour and minute hands. Tritium is a self-illuminating gas which will provide a 24/7 glow without the need for charging by an external light source. The ETA F06 is accurate to -0.3/+0.5 seconds per day and also includes an End of Life (EOL) indicator that will advance the seconds hand once every 4 seconds when the battery is low to inform you that a battery change is needed.

Made in Switzerland.

    Marathon SS GP Watch

    Posted by Grant on Jan 30th 2021

    I love this watch. Perfect for an everyday watch. Very easy to read any time of the day or night. As was said in another review, the case size measurement includes the crown, so may be slightly smaller than anticipated, but suits any size wrist due to its styling.

    Great seller great watch not so great a band

    Posted by Harold Olcese on Nov 23rd 2019

    Mark is an upstanding guy and he runs a credible online store for watches. This watch is good in every respect except I believe the band will Fray rapidly. For the amount Marathon charges their bands should be of higher quality otherwise I have no complaints. Thanks Mark and I'm glad you left Amazon!

    Marathon High Torque Quartz

    Posted by Chuck on Oct 8th 2019

    This watch is 39mm to the stem so it was a little smaller than I though it would be. it's very well made and has a good feel when setting time and date. it's light, easy to read day or night and very comfortable. Sleeve's fit over it no problem. If you like form follows function and don't care about the image of a larger watch, this might be a good choice.

    No issues. This shipped quickly, looks good on a 7" wrist. The lume was bright especially after my eyes adjusted to the darkness.

    Long Island Watch

    Posted by Kenneth Crenshaw on Oct 7th 2018

    I had been researching Marathon watches all summer and found a better deal at Long Island Watch than from the manufacturer's site. I am very happy with my experience at Long Island Watch, and will be returning in the near future to fill my wish list ;)

    Marathon high torque Quartz military general purpl

    Posted by Rob Hughes on Jun 8th 2018

    Very nice watch. Instructions on how to set date were confusing. Long island helped me with it. I would like to have replacement bands for years of use. Long island didn't have any for me to order.
