In 1980, the first quartz watch issued to British Forces was made by CWC. The old logo was used for a couple of years and was changed to the oval logo in 1982. The early G10s were nicknamed Fatboy as the case was deeper than the current models due to earlier deeper movements.

The last CWC G10 issued was around 2008 and is the same watch today, just as rugged, reliable, accurate and dependable as it has always been. (Super-Luminova is now used instead of Tritium)
Supplied on a Cabot military grey 18mm with gloss silver buckles as standard.

Excellent product, unbelievably fast ahipping

Just received my classic G10 here in Sydney, literally less then three days after I ordered it from the UK store. The quality of the case, movement and function is exceptional for a timepiece at this price-point, and the extremely fast international shipping allowed me to enjoy my new purchase only a couple of days after ordering it. Extremely happy customer; I will be back!

No Nonsense Watch

A great every day watch. Accurate, unobtrusive, easy to read and very comfortable to wear A quick change of strap gives the watch a whole new look as well. I would definitely recommend buying one.

G10 Wstch

Quick delivery, well packaged, as advertised. Clear, functional, no frills. Exactly what I wanted, keeping good time so far. Will see how 5atm fares in the current Lake District weather !

My new favourite watch

I've had my G10 since mid February, and since then it has been my daily wearer. As others have said: it arrived set to the exact time and, as I noted with pleasure, the seconds hand registration was excellent, unusual even for more expensive quartz watches. Fit and finish is of a high standard, and operation is simple; since adjusting for daylight saving on the 31st March, mine has kept exact time, neither gaining or losing a second, accuracy of which, if the description is correct, I put down to the ETA Preci-Drive movement.
