Marathon has been manufacturing military-spec watches since it supplied Allied troops with field watches back in 1941.
The General Purpose Quartz is close relative of those first battle-hardened designs and is currently issued for field use for both American and Canadian Armed Forces.
The small case size is perfect for field use - its low profile slipping easily under uniform cuffs and staying clear from snagging on gear straps - and its nondescript look makes it ideal for grey man ops. The case is a composite material, lighter than steel and just as strong and coming in three tactical colorways. Steel case back is waterproof and dustproof.
The high torque quartz movement is Swiss and features an End-Of-Life indicator to help keep you on time and on target. The dial and hands sport MaraGlo technology for low light viewing.
Perfect for daily field use and everyday wear alike, the General Purpose Quartz is an efficient and cost-effective battle-ready watch.
