This is the newest U.S. Military Pilot/Navigator's Watch by Marathon (MIL-PRF-46374G specification). 42x46 mm. This is a current issue watch (manufactured in December 2010), USAF and USN, Tritium Tracer (Glass Tubes) Navigational Wristwatch that glows 20 times brighter than an ordinary luminous watch. This type of watch is current government issue to elite military, special operations and law enforcement units such as FBI and United States Marshals Service. The design and reliability is the same as the legendary Navigator watch produced by Marathon in various forms since the late 1980s and features a date window as well as red tipped seconds hand.
The watch measures 44x48mm (not including the crown) with a 20mm lug width (strap size).
This watch is powered by a NEW Eveready Energizer® 395 watch battery, and is accurate to +/- 21 seconds per month (mine is actually right on after many weeks!). By pulling the crown out, the second hand is stopped (hacked) for synchronization. 12 O'clock illuminated in red. Easy to read at night. Very lightweight and stylish. Watch is manufactured to MIL-46374G specifications. Stainless steel back is stamped as follows:
WATCH. WRIST: NAVIGATORS
This is a great looking timepiece that is actual military issue and has met rigorous military specifications. It is not a factory second or government rejected watch.
