Military Industries Dive watch

Post by domecurb on Thu May 10 2018, 17:03

this is another that arrived a while ago and is made by Military Industries, it seems to be a bit of a mixed heritage in that it was bought from Guernsey,but was sold by a German Casino, their head office is in Canada with offices in London, Sydney Au, Singapore and Gibraltar and i have a strong suspicion the watch was made in China, they also seem to be linked to MWC [ Military Watch Company ] regardless of its history though its a fine watch IMO

Seiko/TMI NH36 movement
Hacking and hand wind
1000ft/300m WR
no date dial
aged Tritium lume
47mm wide including the crown

its clearly not a real military watch, but it is IMO a very good looking watch, i dont normally like the Mercedes hands as they seemed to be used by every manufacturer these days, but i think they work here especially with the Faux aged lume which glow very brightly for hours.
the watch came supplied with 2 Nato straps which i dont like so was swapped onto a mesh right away and its now a very comfy and unobtrusive watch which looks great and keeps superb time, the build quality is on a par with watches costing £150 plus.

That is stunning, what a beautiful watch. The bezel is perfectly proportioned for the dial & I love the Mercedes hands and faux aged lume. It really gives the watch a great vintage look but with the advantage of being in brand new pristine condition which can’t always be expected with vintage watches.

One I think deserves plenty of wrist time though as I have said before it must be increasingly harder to do with the regular flow of lovely watches being added to your collection. Very Happy

Sorry I have tried but the only thing I can pick up is it’s not a named brand, love the no-date window,vintage type lume,the bezel, everything just works on this and yes the mesh sets it of in my eyes a really fabulous looking watch,enjoy
