MKVI Mil-Spec (MIL-W-46374) US Army Watch, Olive
The original US military specification MIL-W-46374 was published in 1964, the objective of which was to set out the basic requirements for straightforward low cost watches to be issued to the military. The actual wording from the original specification reads as follows:
"This specification covers one type of plastic-cased wrist watch intended for use where a high degree of accuracy is not required. The watch is not intended to receive maintenance support within the military supply system."
These 1960s disposable field watches were simple watches with a one-piece case design manufactured in plastic with a simple non-hacking handwound movement. In essence this 1964 specification called for a disposable watch with minimal water resistance and minimal protection from shock, vibration, or temperature extremes.
MWC designed their MKVI to be a durable, reliable update to this old disposable army watch. This modern upgrade to the MIL-W-46374 retains the original watch's attractive, simple design but is constructed with a tough steel body and features a reliable, accurate Quartz movement.
