Selling my used but not abused Marathon Gallet Steel Navigator.

If you're considering this watch for your collection and/or daily wear then you probably already know that this watch was issued to US Air Force pilots during the Gulf War 1990/1991. From my research, this is NOT the reissue version as the tritium tube at 12 o'clock is the same color as all of the other hour markers - the reissued ones have an orange tube like the newer GSARs do. Furthermore, the reissue versions have a smaller crown that is flush with the case. Additionally, the reissue version’s case backs do not have symmetry of the milspec markings squarely engraved at the bottom nor the battery hatch directly across from the crown.

This watch wears much like the Benrus Type II and the Dagaz and MKii Paradive and Blackwater homages to it.

  • Size measures 42mm x 11mm w/ 20mm lug width.
  • Tritium lume still glows faintly but is readable at night.
  • Screw down crown operates as it should.
  • Easy access screw-in hatch access for battery swaps.
  • The fixed lug bars are made for NATOs and ZULUs.
  • Bezel clicks and turns both directions for fast and easy second timezone orientation.
  • Second hand hits every tick and hacks for precise and/or synchronous setting.
  • Case shows minimal signs of wear and is remarkably free of dings or dents.
  • Acrylic slightly domed crystal (used for it’s shatter resistant properties) shows light wear marks that could be buffed out with Polywatch, Brasso or even toothpaste - no chips or deep scratches.

Please refer to the pictures as part of the description as I did my best to capture the essence of this true military field watch - please forgive dust/lint.

The watch will come with a preworn elastic one piece nato strap (black) and a new replacement battery for when that time comes (I'm not sure when the battery was replaced so I keep one on hand just in case). No box or papers on this very wearable semi-vintage timepiece.

The more that I wear (and admire) this watch, the more I am convinced that this timepiece is worth more than I originally priced it. So cool, so authentic and an ACTUAL Milspec tool!

As such, I‘ve done the unheard of and have decided to raise the price for this one. We’ll see if I am wrong, but I’m not in a hurry and I’m not desperate. For me, and likely many others like me, this one checks a lot of boxes, if not all of them.

$1250 Paypal on me. Shipped to CONUSA Only. No Returns.
