Description Technical Specs
 
This automatic self winding GG-W-113 pattern watch is a classic design based on the typical designs used in the Vietnam War from the 1960s to the early 1970s, it has a glass crystal and the mechanical movement is a self winding automatic with the option to hand wind if desired. The watch offers the benefit of retaining the classic 1960s outward appearance whilst having the advantage of a few important updates to improve its suitability for use on a day to day basis, the main upgrades are an increase from 30m to 100m water resistance and a screw down crown and caseback.
All the original watches used plexiglass which was fine for the time but does not come anywhere near meeting modern standards for either water resistance or scratch resistance. The updates mean that rather than just being splash-proof like the original models this watch is fine for swimming and other activities involving use in water, although the updates vastly improve the watch in terms of performance it still retains it's historical retro appearance which was achieved by manufacturing a special curved glass crystal which closely mimics the original.
This watch has a heavy stainless steel satin finish case made from Military Grade 316L stainless steel, sweep second hand, hacking function, black dial and Luminova or the markings and hands for first rate night-time performance.
The new 100m series of models were developed in 2019 and encompass the best of both traditional appearance and current day performance standards.
