Marathon General Purpose Mechanical Composite - Black
The General Purpose Mechanical Composite watch from Marathon features a new dual winding 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 new GPM uses a Japanese-made automatic movement and can be wound both by manually winding the crown or by use of the automatic self-winding rotor, with a 41 hour power reserve.
The case of the General Purpose Mechanical 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 GPM 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 with the new General Purpose Mechanical 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.
Overall assembly of the watch is performed in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland, combining the accuracy of a Marathon designed Japanese movement with reliability and Swiss craftsmanship to bring you a superb watch.
