Marathon Automatic and Hand Winding General Purpose Watch with Tritium Illumination #WW194003

The new GPM uses a Japanese made “Dual Winding Movement” (DWM) and can be wound both by manually winding the crown or by use of the automatic self-winding rotor (transferred energy caused by the movement of the wrist). With our new watch winding system, the user will notice that there is a mechanical noise and the rotor can be felt oscillating; reassuring the user that the automatic winding system is performing as intended. Once fully wound the GPM will run for approximately 41 hours without the need to be wound again, or can be worn to wind using the automatic self-winding rotor.

The case of the GPM is made from high-impact fibreshell, which does not sacrifice quality or durability while keeping weight low. Applied on the dial, minute, and hour hands are self contained Tritium gas filled tubes which ensure a constant glow for maximum low-light visibility. Tritium is a trusted source of illumination for military equipment, from watches to aeronautical displays, firearm sights, and binoculars. Tritium tubes glow on their own without the need for charging by an external light source, and will not fade in brightness making it an ideal configuration for nighttime or low light operation.

The crystal (lens) of the new GPM is made from sapphire ensuring the highest possible scratch resistance, legibility, and durability. This new sapphire crystal is 3mm thick, providing added durability and impact resistance. Adding to the overall durability and reliability is the upgraded water resistance on the new GPM giving it a water resistant of 5ATM (50 meters/164 feet), making sure that it will not yield to the elements. Included with the new GPM is a one piece nylon military strap which is made in accordance with MIL-S-46383B Type II and provides comfort and durability while remaining lightweight. Also available from Marathon are extra nylon straps in various colors to personalize your GPM.

Overall assembly of the watch is performed in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland, combining the accuracy of a Marathon designed Japanese movement with reliability and Swiss craftsmanship to bring you a superb watch. The Marathon GPM is a watch that will provide you with years of accuracy, reliability, and enjoyment!

5 of 5 Brighter and more accurate than you think September 11, 2020
Reviewer: Steve Walker from Sammamish, WA United States  
What a pleasure to learn about watches and then to have such a wide selection.  

I have small wrists so this Marathon fit the ticket.  It is running accurate to within 5 seconds a day and it is true, as your eyes adjust to darkness the Tritium is bright.

Thanks for offering it, shipping it quickly and at an affordable price.

5 of 5 Marathon General Purpose Watch July 3, 2020
Reviewer: Kevin D. from San Diego, CA United States  
Watch arrive quickly after ordering it.  The tritium tubes provided better than expected illumination in mid light and as expected Illumination in darkness.  The only thing that I personally will change is the watch band, since the one that is comes with is fairly stiff on the width edges and uncomfortable because of that to me.
