MWC secured a large procurement contract to supply these watches to a distributor who supplies police forces in the U.S and Canada, this was the first time that MWC supplied 100% digital watches with such a high specification although they have manufactured LCD/Analog models in the past. Following the sale of the watches for the contract they had around 70 watches remaining that they offered at a trade show in June, they proved extremely popular amongst the customers and they secured two further wholesale purchases. We decided to offer them for retail sale because at such a keen price there are very few watches which can come close to the specification.
These large, robust and highly visible watches have multiple features designed to be utilized in a wide range of military, police, emergency services, aviation and civilian applications. The features include an altimeter that monitors your vertical movement, a barometer that enables you to monitor air pressure and see whether it's rising or falling, this enables you to determine both current and impending weather trends and prepare accordingly, this feature can be very important because if you are in an exposed area or at sea the weather forecast is not always accurate but rapidly falling air pressure usually suggests that a low-pressure system bringing wet, stormy weather is moving your way and the faster it’s falling the more rapidly it is likely to arrive, the watch also has a built-in compass, temperature monitor, pedometer to count steps, dual time zone facility, countdown timer, alarm and backlight. The 18-month battery life is also exceptional for a watch with so many complex functions.
The watch has a robust stainless steel case with tempered glass and a high-quality nylon military webbing strap. The water resistance rating is 50M/5ATM/165ft.
