MWC Classic Watch - 1940s to 1960s Pattern General Service Watch with 24 Jewel Automatic Movement (Retro Dial Variant)
This automatic self winding 1960's pattern MWC military watch is based on the typical designs used by the British Army from the late 1940s to the 1960s, it retains the acrylic crystal as used on the original watches although the mechanical movement is upgraded to automatic with the option to hand wind if required. The watch offers the benefit of retaining the original outward appearance even as far as the retro luminous paint whilst having the advantage of a a few discreet updates to improve its suitability for use on a day to day basis.

It also has two straps made in the same canvas material and general design which was used in the 1940s and 50s. Please note: The watch uses retro coloured Luminous Super Luminova paint although the watch carries an encircled T for historical accuracy though no radioactive material is contained within the watch.
