The Marathon Divers Automatic WW194006 is a dive watch built to ISO 6425 standards. Designed for use by Search and Rescue (SAR) divers, and issued to the United States Marine Corps, the Divers Automatic is a watch built to withstand the most extreme of conditions The Diver's Automatic is also known as the Government Search and Rescue (GSAR).

The watch is water resistant down to 30 ATM - 300 meters (1000 feet) underwater. Built from 316L surgical grade stainless steel, the Divers Automatic is a high quality, purpose built watch that will reliably accompany you on any adventure you may embark on. The Divers Automatic uses a scratch resistant, sapphire glass crystal.

The Divers Automatic is made in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing. Inside the Divers Automatic is a Swiss Marathon M2, 26 jewel Sellita SW200 automatic movement, the Divers Automatic guarantees you a reliable and accurate timekeeping experience. The Divers Automatic uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations, a gas tube is placed on each hour marker and hands and uses MaraGlo for the 12 hour bezel marker. 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.

The Marathon Divers Automatic combines Military toughness with Swiss craftsmanship in a watch that will get the job done, and look good doing it.

    Marathon GSAR

    Posted by James Shin on Sep 20th 2021

    I could not be happier with the GSAR. Finally a dive watch that is not derivative of a Submariner and yet has a timeless design. Tool watches at their core are the definition of function first. The GSAR fulfills its mission by adhering to MILSPEC requirements and does not compromise function for fashion. I was initially apprehensive of a 40mm+ watch as I do not like wearing pie plates on my wrist but as many other reviewers have noted wears much more like a 39mm and is comfortable on the stainless bracelet. The GSAR now gets more wear than my Rolex GMT which took over daily wear from my grandfather's two tone Datejust. Island Watch was great to work with, communication, and shipping were a breeze. The watch actually arrived a day earlier than expected. If there is one critique it is that Island Watch does not install bracelets prior to shipping. My 51yr old eyes and dexterity could not get the bracelet installed and had to have a local jeweler do it for me. No big deal and it really is a piddly critique. I would definitely buy from Island Watch the next time I am in the market for a watch.

    Marathon GSAR

    Beautiful diver, very solid, well made. You can feel the high build quality. I like the silicone strap but the East has also looks great on a steel mesh and NATO.

    Bought this straight off the website, was shipped within an hour and took less than a week to arrive on the other side of the earth. Quality of the watch is AAA, as expected. Watch wears well on the stock bracelet or mesh, NATO, Rhino Zulu, Canvas.. whatever you throw it on, it looks sweet as. Bracelet was a little more difficult to size than most, also tolerances are tight so it takes patience to put the head on or take off the bracelet, but once you get the knack - no worries. Would recommend both the GSAR and Long Island Watch.

    Marathon GSAR

    Posted by Mark L. on Dec 6th 2020

    This GSAR is a very rugged and accurate time piece, and I do recommend it. I do want to say I also highly recommend Island Watch. When I was trying to order online for some reason the order wouldn't go through so I emailed Mark F. at Island Watch ,and he personally made the order for me, and this was at 9:00 PM. This shows excellent customer service, and I will buy from Mark F. at Island Watch again.

    Marathon GSAR

    Posted by James Clemens on Nov 23rd 2020

    Beautiful watch with superior quality. You get what you pay for here. Marathon clearly has in depth experience with making Military grade/spec timepieces and with it being available to the civilian market the GSAR is identical. You will not be let down.

    Great customer service & great watch

    Posted by Vin on Jul 9th 2020

    Mark is diligent in responding to emails and helping with any ordering issues. Very good customer service. The watch also looks incredible and comes in beautiful box. The tritium lume is bright in total darkness, it actually casts a small green glow when up against my bedroom wall at night.
