Marathon Swiss Made, (Medium) GSAR Automatic Military Divers Watch with Sapphire Crystal #WW194026-WD

The Marathon Diver’s Automatic Medium is a dive watch built to ISO 6425 standards but is a smaller, medium sized, version of Marathon’s line of diver’s watches, perfect for someone who wants a tough, reliable, and military issue dive watch, yet prefers a reduced size watch that is just as tough as its larger brothers.

The Diver’s Automatic Medium is a dive watch certified for water resistance down to 30 ATM - 300 meters (1000 feet) underwater. The Diver’s Automatic Medium uses a scratch resistant sapphire glass crystal to ensure it maintains maximum legibility. Built from 316L surgical grade stainless steel, the Diver’s Automatic Medium is a tough watch that is comfortable for people with smaller wrists.

The Diver’s Automatic Medium 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 Automatic Medium is made in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing. Inside the Diver’s Automatic is a Swiss made, Marathon M2, 26 jewel Sellita SW200 automatic movement that gives you a reliable and accurate timekeeping experience. The Diver’s Automatic Medium 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 Diver’s Automatic Medium boasts the same toughness, water resistance, and movement as the larger Marathon diver’s watches in a compact package. To maintain proper tracking for maintenance, each Diver’s Automatic Medium comes individually numbered and engraved with a serial number.

    This watch is a couple of firsts for me. First time ordering from Long Island Watch; first swiss movement; first diver. I have been over the moon with this watch and the buying experience. The watch itself is only 36mm, but with a 38mm bezel does not look out of place on my 7 inch(ish) wrist. The strap is extremely comfortable and, due to the reduced size, just wears well. I really enjoy the proportions of the dial, and that the seconds hand hits the sub-seconds markers and that the minute hand just touches the minute indices. What is really impressive is just how legible it is with a smaller dial. It is somehow more legible then the 42mm Laco type A that I was wearing previously, and I'm not quite sure how Marathon has accomplished that. The bezel action is excellent and tritium lume lets off a wonderfully gentle glow that never stops. The only possible negative I experienced was that, after a day in the office, walking outside in direct sunlight and looking down at a white-white-white watch face can be blinding for a second, but that goes away as your eyes adjust. Overall, this is a solid little diver with tiny details I've been appreciating over the last few days and I am very happy with my purchase. Before I forget, I do want to mention that I am highly allergic to nickel and reached out to Mark for some help on this. He recommended trying out 316L stainless steel because of its corrosion resistant properties and I have not had a reaction after wearing it for several days. So, Mark, if you read this: thank you! This is the first steel I have worn in any capacity in years and I am thrilled.

    You never get a second chance to do a first impression, and I must say Marc & co did it very well! The watches was everything I hoped for, and they will meet hard use outdoors summer and winter, in the artic! All good here and only +++ Will buy again

    Dress Up and Dress Down

    Posted by Christian Daily on Oct 27th 2020

    Seeing this watch out of the box may seem diminutive at first glance, however you will soon realize the advantages of its reduced dimensions. Its size is chunky and tough enough to serve as a rugged sports watch but also it's modest enough to wear with a suit and tie without seeming bulky and ostentatious. A great all rounder. My new favourite, I don't want to take it off. The size is comparable to a Skin Diver from the 1960's, 1970's.

    Very cool watch

    Posted by Dylan on Sep 8th 2020

    Overall a very cool midsize diver's watch. Unfortunately when I unboxed it i did notice a pretty good scratch on the left side of the case, but not too big of an issue overall as I could easily have it buffed if I wanted to in the future. So far time keeping is good, and although it is a thick watch, at 36mm it isn't overwhelming on the wrist. With that said, people with larger wrists should probably avoid this midsize model and go with the larger one, as it does wear a tad small.

    Tough Watch & Perfect Size

    Posted by Christopher on Jun 25th 2020

    I am involved in a lot of outdoor activities and recently destroyed an Apple Watch - delicate little things. I took a good look at what I really needed in a watch and realized I never used most of what the Apple offered. This Marathon Diver is perfect for what I need in both function and form. So far the watch seems like it will stand up to the abuse I expect from it. It was losing about 10 seconds per day when I first got it but seems to have settled into about -3/day. I like it!
