Marathon Swiss Made, JDD Search and Rescue Automatic Divers Watch with Sapphire Crystal #WW194021

The Marathon Large Bilingual Diver’s Automatic is a large dive watch with a day and date function in both English and French. Designed for use by Search and Rescue (SAR) divers, the Large Bilingual Diver’s Automatic is a watch built to withstand the most extreme of conditions. The Large Bilingual Diver’s Automatic is also known as the Jumbo Day Date (JDD).

The Marathon JDD is certified for water resistance down to 30 ATM – 300 meters (1000 feet) underwater. Made from 316L surgical grade stainless steel, the JDD is a hefty, purpose built watch that will not let you down on any adventure you may take it. The crystal of the JDD is a synthetic sapphire which will resist scratches, and ensure maximum dial legibility. The crystal of the JDD is also domed shaped to improve legibility even further.

The JDD is made in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing.
Inside the JDD is a Swiss made, 26 jewel Sellita SW-220 automatic movement. The JDD uses self contained Tritium gas tubes to ensure constant visibility in low light situations, a gas tube is placed on each hour marker as well as the hour and minute hands and uses MaraGlo paint 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 photo-luminescent paint which requires an external light source to create a glow.

The JDD combines Military toughness with Swiss craftsmanship in a watch that will get the job done, and look good doing it.

I have worked with Island Watch on several occasions and have always had a great experience.  Even during these trying times for everyone the shipping times and client service has been great!

5 of 5 Another Great Buy From Island Watch October 26, 2020
Reviewer: Chris LaVesser from New Berlin, WI United States  
I'd been equivocating on whether or not to make the purchase for a while - do I need another watch?  Of course, when my moment of weakness arrived, it was out of stock.  So I mashed on the Notify Me button.

A couple weeks later the watch was back in stock and still selling at the very attractive Island Watch price (a good discount off MSRP).

The transaction was easy, the shipping was quick, and the watch arrived in pristine condition.

Another great watch purchase from Island Watch!

And of course, I'm already asking myself if I need another watch...

5 of 5 Excellent September 3, 2020
Reviewer: JDM from Socal  
Ordered this watch late on a Friday, had it in (on?) hand on the following Tuesday.
I wanted something that:
1. is massive because apparently I can't see all that well
2. has lume that lasts past midnight (sorry Lumibrite and Superluminova, you suck at this IMO)
3. will be easy to service (common movement)
Is tritium as bright as fresh paint? No. But it glows the same ALL night. No more holding watches 2"  from my eye to try and divine the time! I like watching the tube on the second hand go around too...
Size: it's Big, but not obscene on my 7.75" wrist.
The strap is on the short side - I use hole #6 out of 8 - if you have more than a 7.5" wrist, you'll want the bracelet or maybe a NATO.
Downsides? IDK. Reviews of this watch say the edge of the day marking is close to being "under" the edge of the day window. Not something I notice/care about but if you worry about details like this, it's there.
Great buy.
Super happy I went with LIW again for this purchase.

4 of 5 So far, so good November 1, 2019
Reviewer: Spartan from APO, AE United States  
I received the watch in a timely manner and it is everything that was promised.  This watch is heavy and awesome.  The only reason I did not list it as excellent is this; it is not as bright/luminescent as advertised and for the price, the watch should have come with a metal band.  As for the watch, I have no immediate complaints.  Solid.
