These watches are very similar in appearance to the watches used by American troops during the 1960s and 1970s but has a British military pattern dial favored by NATO forces during the Cold War. The actual military issue models were made of plastic because they were deemed disposable. MWC chose to completely rethink the watch and while keeping the original appearance, weight and feel we switched to all metal construction which means that although the watch looks very close to the originals it is vastly superior in both durability and general quality. The originals of these watches are now almost impossible to find in good sound condition and this watch is a very convincing recreation of the classic Cold War era European military style watch with a 1966 date and British government proof marks on the reverse.
