RED Box Watch US Military Issue - collectible
Marathon Special Field Watch – RED BOX LIMITED ISSUE WATCH WRIST: GENERAL PURPOSE MIL-W-46374E/6645-00-066-4279. This was genuine basic issue. This is the watch YOU NEED –IF you collect mil watches there was only one other red box made and it is gone– SO affordable and very very accurate with a genuine Swiss ETA hi-beat maintainable mechanical movement. But, if there is damage or you tire of it there is so little lost. This is an excellent watch for Law enforcement, active duty and reserve personnel, security and people who are active And want a “beater” watch they do not need to worry about. This was the beginning of the new age of Tritium tube dials on the surface. For night use it is unbeatable With its Tritium VIALS at each hour marker AND the hands the brilliance is incredible. ******** For collectors this is important since the first models had “peek-a-boo” windows for the tritium tubes and this is the “E” series first model with the tubes on the dial surface *******This is not a BIG watch. Slips in any pocket for instant changeover in a situation where the nice watch you are wearing and was not made hacking. Does not have to take the beating. I have friends in law enforcement who use this watch – they get called or are on duty throw the Rolex in the draw and strap this on or keep it in their kit or duffle. This is perfect for the traveler. These days who does not want to take an expensive watch on vacation – one less worry. Tritium gas-tube luminescence. Cost is only 185.00. Fiberglass/composite case and acrylic domed crystal. Nylon issue strap. Hand wound and Water resistant to 3 ATM. – SIZE: 34mm in diameter and 40 mm lug to lug and 11mm thick with 18 mm lugs.
