A-11 1940s WWII Pattern Automatic Military Watch 100m
This recreation is based closely on the original World War Two design from 1943 but has the advantage that it is now equipped with a high performance self winding 24 jewel mechanical movement, glass crystal, screw caseback and 100m water resistance.
This particular recreation came into being because in January 2009 MWC was approached by a US veterans association and asked to examine the viability of making a watch that was identical in appearance to the original watches which were made by Hamilton, Bulova and Benrus during the Vietnam war.
They were sent sample watches to examine and also the original specification sheets and the result was a watch which was very close to the original
This model was developed in 2019 to retain the appearance of the original watches but with multiple upgrades such as screw down crown, 100m water resistance and screw caseback.
