Description Technical Specs

Marathon Swiss Made, (Medium) GSAR Automatic Military Divers Watch with Sapphire Crystal #WW194026

The Marathon Diver’s Automatic Medium is a dive watch built to ISO 6425 standards but is a smaller, medium sized, version of Marathon’s line of diver’s watches, perfect for someone who wants a tough, reliable, and military issue dive watch, yet prefers a reduced size watch that is just as tough as its larger brothers.

The Diver’s Automatic Medium is a dive watch certified for water resistance down to 30 ATM - 300 meters (1000 feet) underwater. The Diver’s Automatic Medium uses a scratch resistant sapphire glass crystal to ensuremaintains maximum legibility. Built from 316L surgical grade stainless steel, the Diver’s Automatic Medium is a tough watch that is comfortable for people with smaller wrists.

The Diver’s Automatic Medium includes a vulcanized rubber strap. When first worn, the strap will have no holes to put the buckle through and instead must be carefully pierced. This can be done to create a custom fit for superior comfort.

The Diver’s Automatic Medium is made in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing. Inside the Diver’s Automatic is a Swiss made, 26 jewel Sellita SW200 automatic movement, the Diver’s Automatic Medium guarantees you a reliable and accurate timekeeping experience. The Diver’s Automatic Medium uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations, a gas tube is placed on each hour marker and hands and uses MaraGlo for the 12 hour bezel marker. Tritium tubes are self illuminating gas tubes which contain an isotope of hydrogen, meaning they will not dull down in brightness like normal photoluminescent paint which requires an external light source to create a glow.

The Diver’s Automatic Medium boasts the same toughness, water resistance, and movement as the larger Marathon diver’s watches in a compact package. To maintain proper tracking for maintenance, each Diver’s Automatic Medium comes individually numbered and engraved with a serial number.

Fantastic modest dive watch October 9, 2017
Reviewer: William Fleming from Cambridge, MD United States  
As a man with smaller 6" wrists, it can be tough as a lover of dive watches as so many just are too large for me to wear.

The marathon medium however is an absolute perfect fit. It's a smaller size but sits so large that it still has a great masculine impression to it. The tritium tubes are a fantastic feature that make me wear the watch every single night, and the overall design is great and goes well with any outfit (although it is certainly too tall to fit under a shirt sleeve). Highly recommended.

Extremely Pleased August 3, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from El Cerrito, CA United States  
Island Watch had competitive pricing for this watch and included free priority shipping. Received watch in good order and condition. Very happy with IW. I strongly recommend checking out their selection of excellent value brands. I am now wanting one of the Laco fliegers.

Marathon GSAR is now enjoying the sun and the ocean in Cabo San Lucas.

Perfect Everyday Active Watch April 4, 2017
Reviewer: Bryan McDonald from Tampa, FL United States  
I selected this Marathon option because I'm not a fan of the trend toward large dials.   They tend to be bulky and don't really improve the readability of the time in most cases.   This is the perfect option if you're looking for and understated and well made Swiss automatic dive watch with exceptional luminosity.   Moreover, I upgraded to the stainless steel bracelet and was able to buy the whole package for around $800.   Not bad for a watch that will outlast me even after banging it around fishing and kayaking.

Marathon GSAR (medium) March 31, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Plattsburgh, NY United States  
The Marathon GSAR (medium) is a solid diver watch that isn't pretty but it is functional. The tritium tubes do allow for consistent visibility through out the night, and the sample pictures provided by Long Island Watches do show the tubes true brightness. The bezel requires little grip to engage and has no play.  The rubber strap though, is comfortable and pleasant, is to short to function as a diver's strap or over clothing. As for time keeping, I have had the watch over a week and have not had to adjust the time. A great sized watch for the smaller wrists, mine is 6 3/4 inches, without the watch appearing effeminate.
