I've really loved this watch. The watch itself has great heft and quite substantial on the wrist. The Stainless Steel bracelet is great, and stays on the wrist no matter what you put it through (one of my favorite things about the watch).
I have bought and sold many watches on the forum, and am happy to provide references. Questions can be sent directly to markslucas @ Gmail. com
Condition / Service History -
I recently took the watch to my watchmaker for a battery change, and had the watch sealed and pressure tested. The watch is running great. I have not buffed or polished the watch, although it could use one. Crystal is clean, and case is free of major gouges. There are however marks from ware throughout the band and case. Please review the pictures for cosmetic condition.
UPDATE: I added a picture of the watch face not in direct sunlight as the crystal appeared hazy. The dial on this watch is not deep Black, it is Charcoal. Also, there has never been moisture in the watch. I will say that MWC is known for not fully wiping down the inside of the crystals. This particular crystal does have a little bit of dust on the upper left corner that can be seen under a lope. When the watch is on your wrist, it is almost impossible to see, and does not impact the view from the wrist. New Dial pic is the first picture below.
This watch is made of high quality components with a Swiss case and movement it is manufactured from brushed 316L military grade stainless steel. The case of this particular diver model is larger/heavier than standard MWC diver?s models.
The watch has a screw down crown milled for easy grip and also a screw down caseback giving the watch a 200m / 20atm / 660ft water resistance rating.
This model came with solid link stainless steel bracelet. It has folding clasp with double push button security release, as well as a flip lock safety clasp.
The movement is Swiss made Ronda quartz which guarantees high levels of accuracy.
The dial and hands are made by the leading Swiss manufacturer of tritium gas tubes MB-Microtec these tubes are filled with highly luminous tritium gas and require no external light charging. The watch has 14 tubes in total of which 12 are for the hours (11 green and 1 orange at 12.00 for orientation when the watch is not being worn) the other two tubes illuminate the hands.
I purchased the watch from MWC in the UK. I paid $350 plus shipping new in late 2010. I wore the watch daily for about 1 1/2 years until I upgraded to a Steinhart Ocean Vintage Red. I would love to find this watch and new wrist soon, so I am pricing it aggressively

The watch will come with MWC Tin, extra links and original warranty card from MWC.
