Marathon Swiss Made Quartz Military Navigator Pilot Watch with Tritium Illumination #WW194001

The Marathon Military Navigator Pilots Quartz is a highly accurate watch built to strict military specifications.

The Marathon Military Navigator Pilots was first developed in 1986. It was made as a request by Kelley Air Force Base for a watch which could be used in situations a pilot or parachutist would encounter. Marathon fulfilled this request with the Navigator Pilots Quartz. Made from a special fibershell case that is water resistant to 5 ATM, sweat and shock resistant, as well as lightweight. Included with the Military Navigator Pilots Quartz is a 20 millimeter width nylon strap made under MIL-S-46383B, Type III. The watch uses a sapphire crystal that is resistant to scratching.

The Navigator Pilots Quartz is made in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland. Powered by a Swiss made, high torque, 3 jewel ETA F06 Quartz movement, as a result the Navigator Pilots Quartz guarantees you a high degree of accuracy in timekeeping. The ETA F06 is accurate to -0.3/+0.5 seconds per day and includes a battery End of Life (EOL) indicator. The Navigator Pilots Quartz uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations; therefore, a tube is placed on each hour marker, hand, and at the 12 hour marker in the bezel. Tritium tubes are self illuminating gas tubes which contain an isotope of hydrogen that glows consistently for years.

The Navigator Pilots Quartz combines military durability with Swiss craftsmanship in a timepiece that will last you for years.

    Should I be disappointed...?

    Posted by Greg Arciniega on Sep 4th 2020

    Well, the watch works as advertised on almost every point except one- the Second Hand jumps between second markers from :45 to :10 and then from :15 to :25... If I think upon it, there's a bit of disappointment because while this is a birthday gift to myself, the watch is Literally the first Brand New Object I have gotten for myself in decades. If you read this, do you think that an exchange is in order...? I do hope to hear from you soon, via text or email. Thank you.

    Great Service

    The watch shipped quickly and though I had to return it as I wanted a sterile dial version (my fault, not theirs) the refund was processed super fast. Was my second purchase from LIW and I will definitely purchase from them again - thanks LIW!

    Nice upgrade from my original hesalite

    Posted by Ron C on Sep 20th 2019

    Great watch. Very lightweight, accurate time and it’s the real deal. No fake marketing navy seal luminox type watch here. The sapphire is a huge bonus for me because the hesalite would scratch easily and this is what I’ve been waiting for. Battery hatch is nice and also a steel crown. Pricey but worth it. They hold their value. Tritium is also another great feature on these. I highly recommend getting one and also highly recommend Long Island Watch. They are fantastic

    Great miltec watch

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 4th 2019

    Very good clear, sterile dial, watch is excellent on a NATO strap too, the original strap is military issue I suppose, but with no way to stow tail end overhang, just flaps about. The actual watch is worth every penny and the tritium works like a charm in the wee hours. Watch extremely light being plastic too.

    Great quality

    This watch is so cool! I love it!! I’m really glad I found this site there’s a lot of great pieces here and I’m discover more. It’s a shame I can’t afford to buy some of the more expensive watches here but I’m okay with that because I’m very satisfied with the ones I found for myself.

    Great service, so so watch.

    Posted by Dan on Oct 25th 2018

    As always I got great service from Long Island Watch. However I’m less than impressed with the Marathon Navigator watch. The box clearly states the crown is pulled out to conserve battery life but mine arived running, and for how long is anybody’s guess because Marathon no longer “dates” the back of their watches. It might be an excellent quartz movement but the second hand only hit the minute marks in a few places on the dial, (fault of the movement or mis-marked dial face ??). The strap opening is not quite 20mm and the sharp edges of the case cause it to litterly shread the edges of every 20mm NATO strap I tried to fit to it. None of these problems are the fault of LIW, but had I paid closer attention I would have returned it before attempting to wear it. On the good side, my wife needed a good watch to wear while working in the yard and didn’t mind the miss aligned second hand.

    doesn't get much better than this one if you like military watches. my thing is both military watches, real ones, and mechanical timepieces. it's a big thing for me to like a quartz watch enough to wear it. but this one passes muster. from one of the best iconic designs for a mil watch i've ever seen, to the domed classic crystal, the smoothglide timer/2nd timezone dial with clearly readable in the dark pip, to the precision movement that clicks on the markers right on them vs. off the mark, to the featherweight...this thing has more than enough to overcome every prejudice of mine against wearing a quartz watch. it's one of the very few i will say that about, and that iS saying a lot. a great purchase!

    Fantastic Watch - forget its even on my wrist

    Posted by Rob Preston on Apr 22nd 2018

    This watch is awesome and is feather light. Nato and Zulu straps fit very nicely and the lume is the perfect balance of bright enough to see well at night vs over-powering. Cant be happier with my purchase and I went with the "generic" version to help with visibility of the dial.

    Excellent company great service!

    Posted by Michael H on Nov 15th 2017

    Marc and Island watch was a great pleasure to do business with. I received product on time and quick response to the few questions I had. Trustworthy and will definitely do business again! The Navigator is an excellent watch for everyday wear and a watch you don’t have to worry about wearing, very light on the wrist and keeps spot on time like any quartz. The hesalite crystal can be a worry for some but it is easily polished with poly watch. A great watch, thanks Marc.
