MWC are a leading supplier, not just to the military but also to police forces, anti terrorist units, airlines, mining companies and a diverse variety of government agencies and departments. They are one of the largest specialist manufacturers of high performance military watches and produce a wide range of models either to customers specific design requirements or by tendering for contracts where quality, reliability and durability are of primary importance.
Our Vietnam Watches are virtually identical in appearance to the watches used by American troops in the Vietnam war during the 1960s and early 1970s.Although these watches look very much the same as the original 1968 watch shown in the final image the original was made of plastic because it was deemed disposable by the US military, of course, the problem with continuing to make them in plastic is that the watches would suffer all the same shortcomings as the originals, for this reason the MWC design team decided to completely rethink the watch around 15 years ago, and whilst keeping the original appearance, weight and feel they switched to all-metal construction, this meant that although the watch still looked virtually identical to the originals the upgrade to a metal case made the watches vastly superior in terms of both durability and overall quality.
