The Marathon General Purpose Stainless Steel Mechanical is essentially a re-issue of the brand’s classic GG-W-113 field watch, which was supplied to the US Army throughout the 1980s.

This classic field watch has a case made from 316L surgical-grade stainless steel with a non-reflective satin finish. The crystal is a flat sapphire which provides the perfect blend of scratch resistance, durability, and clarity. All of which are vital attributes for a watch worn by military personnel.

To ensure legibility in low-light, the General Purpose watch makes use of tritium tubes. Unlike normal luminescent paint, the tritium outputs a steady glow, and won’t fade after a few hours. This guarantees the watch will be legible whatever the time of day.

Powering the watch is the reliable ETA 2801 movement. This 17 jewel hand-wound Swiss movement is widely renowned for its durability and accuracy, which makes it the perfect choice for this rugged field watch.
