Marathon General Purpose Quartz Composite With Date - Black
The General Purpose Quartz Composite watch from Marathon features an ETA F06 3 jewel high-torque Quartz movement, scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and improved water resistance. Designed to be used in the field by infantry or other military personnel and built to the strict military standards of MIL-PRF-46374G, the GPM is a true all-purpose watch that will be your reliable companion for years.
The case of the General Purpose is made from high-impact fibre shell, for lightweight durability. Tritium gas filled tubes on the minute and hour hands ensure a constant glow for maximum visibility in low-light without the need for charging from an external light source.
The crystal of the new General Purpose is a 3mm thick sapphire ensuring the highest possible scratch resistance, legibility, and durability. This watch is water resistant to 3 ATM (30 meters/100 feet). Included is a one piece nylon military strap which is made in accordance with MIL-S-46383B Type II and provides comfort and durability while remaining lightweight.
The General Purpose 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 F06 Quartz movement, the watch guarantees you a high degree of accuracy in timekeeping. The ETA F06 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.
