1999 -2001 Pattern Automatic 300 m. The main improvements were the use of an automatic movement with a 60-hour power reserve which is exceptional today but unheard of over 20 years ago, the movement can also be hand wound and has hacking for synchronization. We also upgraded the crystal from hardened mineral glass to sapphire which is vastly superior due to being highly scratch and shatter resistant.These watches are closely based on a case design originally made by the famous Swiss case making firm MRP S. A, other than a few minor updates the case is much the same as in the late 1970s, MRP was named after its founders Marchand, Roth and Petignat, it was founded in 1953 and bought by Georges Hauert in 1979.
The entire share capital now belongs to Mr Patrick Hauert so unlike many other major companies in the watch industry this company is still independent and going strong. It's interesting that few people realise how historically significant this case pattern is nor how well it has stood the test of time having been in continuous production for well over 40 years. The basic design of the specific MWC watch shown here goes back to the British defence specification shown in the final image. The watch measures 45mm including the crown and 40mm excluding the crown although it uses the same 20mm military nylon webbing strap as many other current MWC military divers watches which enables you to choose from a vast variety of NATO strap variants.
