The Marathon General Purpose Mechanical (GPM) in Stainless Steel is a reissue of the Marathon GG-W-113 field watch used throughout the 1980s by the US Army. Taking cues from its vintage style with an update of modern materials and standards, this GPM is manufactured from 316L surgical grade stainless steel with a satinized graphite grey finish, giving the look of a vintage field watch with the proper functionality and durability of a modern one. A tough yet beautiful watch with a robust yet high quality hand winding movement.
Marathon is also best known for using perpetually and autonomously glowing Tritium gas tubes to illuminate the dials. The GPM uses Tritium on each hour marker and hand. Tritium is a trusted source of illumination for military equipment, from watches to aeronautical displays, firearm sights, and binoculars. Tritium tubes glow on their own without the need for charging by an external light source, and will not fade in brightness making it an ideal configuration for nighttime or low light operation.
Features US Government markings on the dial.
