Marathon Swiss Made Quartz Military Navigator Watch with Tritium Illumination #WW194013DT

The Marathon Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz is a highly accurate watch built to strict military specifications under MIL-PRF-46374G. Designed for pilots, parachutists, and law enforcement, the Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz is made to withstand the many challenges that are faced in a professional or everyday environment.

First developed by Marathon Watch Company in 1986, the Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz was made as a request by the Kelly Air Force Base. They wanted a watch which could be used at high altitude, withstand extreme changes in pressure and altitude, as well as be an easy to read timepiece for a pilot. Marathon fulfilled this with the Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz.

The Military Navigator Pilot’s Quartz is made from a specialized fibershell case that is sweat and shock resistant, as well as lightweight. Included with the Military Navigator Pilots Quartz is a 20 millimeter nylon strap made under MIL-S-46383B, Type III. The Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz now uses a Sapphire Crystal.

The Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz is made in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing. Powered by a Swiss made, high torque, 3 jewel ETA FØ6 quartz movement, the Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz guarantees you a high degree of accuracy in timekeeping. The ETA FØ6 movement 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 to inform you that a battery change is needed. Note: this Navigator watch has an old school battery hatch on the back so you don't need a jeweler to install a new battery. Replacement battery is a 371 cell.

The Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations; therefore, a gas 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, meaning they will not dull down in brightness like normal photo-luminescent (glow in the dark) paint which requires an external light source to create a glow.

The Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz combines military durability with Swiss craftsmanship. The Military Navigator Pilot's Quartz is an accurate timepiece that will satisfy you for years.

    Marathon Navigator

    Posted by James on Sep 2nd 2021

    I have wanted this quartz timepiece for quite a while. Long Island Watch had it at a great price so I picked it up. A quality, simple but well built watch that the second hand actually hits all the markers instead of landing between them when ticking! Plus it’s really lightweight and the Tritium has tubes make it a breeze to see the time in the dark/low light. The only thing I would change (and I did) was to have a better strap for it. I remedied that by buying a nice, seatbelt nylon NATO strap for it. Also, keep in mind that this watch has fixed pins that will allow you only to use NATO type or single pass nylon straps. But no biggie, this watch was designed for military use. Overall it’s a fantastic watch and Long Island Watch delivered it quick and speedy.

    Satisfactory watch. It is well made and looks good with its attention to detail. It is a khaki color with a very readable face. Sharp looking, with design and manufacturing attention paid to the sape and appearance of the hands, including the second hand which has a visible red tip. You can't beat the luminescence. The bezel is unidirectional and accurate, lining up exactly to the selected number. I have not worn it, so I cannot comment on durability of case construction. Not a fan of the NATO type bands, so I am waiting on a bund from a leather craftsman. Marathons look well made and are a cut above other watches in each model's particular price range, even the ones at this lower cost end, as this one is.

    Marathon Swiss Quartz Military Navigator Watch

    Posted by Tim on Apr 8th 2019

    The transaction on this purchase was easy. Shipping was prompt. This Marathon watch is performing as expected; typical Marathon accuracy and quality. I have owned one of these in early 2000’s when it was issued to me in the Air Force, so I knew you hat Was was getting. I bought this one from Island, because it was on sale and $40 cheaper than anywhere else. I am pleased with this purchase .

    This was my first watch with tritium and it does not disappoint. I can see the time easily in the middle of the night. It is comfortable to wear and is a great size.
