Military pocket watches, along with their civilian equivalents, are experiencing a significant rise in popularity. Historically, they were used for both land-based and naval applications. During WWII, they were frequently preferred by RAF and USAAF navigators and bomb aimers (US: bombardiers) over conventional wristwatches. Aircrews found it easier to place a pocket watch on a chart, bench, or in the nose of the aircraft while working or approaching a target. Additionally, wristwatches of the time were small, with an average diameter of only around 36mm, making the larger pocket watches, nearly 50mm in size, much easier to read.

We offer several variants of this watch with different specifications to meet various client needs. This variant features a sophisticated hybrid movement, combining the characteristics of an automatic watch, such as a sweep second hand, with the benefits of a highly accurate quartz movement. The watch also includes a hacking feature for synchronization or to conserve power when not in use for extended periods.

MWC hybrid pocket watches combine the best of new and traditional watchmaking technologies. They incorporate features from both conventional automatic and quartz watches, resulting in a hybrid ultra-low maintenance movement. The hybrid movement has a battery powering the movement through coils and a quartz oscillator, while the hands are mechanically actuated and controlled. Essentially, the movement is mechanical, powered by a battery and regulated by a crystal, without a traditional spring. In terms of feel and appearance, it resembles its mechanical sister models.
