MWC PVD LTD Edition GG-W-113 Vietnam Watch
This Ltd Edition is a recreation based on the original 1960's Vietnam designs but with the interesting feature of being PVD plated making the watch non reflective and covert. The watches at the time were made in a variety of slightly different styles by Benrus, Bulova and Waltham but were all based on an original US government specification laid down at the time. Many of the original watches used a 15 or 16 jewel movement but this one has 24 jewels to improve accuracy.
This particular watch came into being because in January 2009 MWC were approached by a US veterans association who asked them to examine the viability of making a watch which was similar in appearance to the original watches which were made during the Vietnam war.
