The Story
Watches Built In Accordance to US Government NSN 6645-21-558-0133

The company that was to become Marathon Watch was founded in 1904 as Weinsturm Watch, later to be named Wein Brothers. In 1939, Morris Wein founded Marathon Watch, supplying fine precision timepieces throughout North America. Since 1941, Marathon has been manufacturing timing instruments for the Allied Forces, and today the fourth generation of the family continues the tradition with a wide range of instruments measuring time, temperature and distance. Marathon watches combine military durability with Swiss engineering and craftsmanship to ensure the highest level of quality and precision.

During the first Gulf War, the US Army sent out an urgent request for a true military watch. Enter Marathon, already a tried and trusted supplier, to supply Military timepieces. For their extensive service, Marathon became the U.S. military watch of choice.  Marathon timepieces are now standard issue for the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, NASA, Canadian Armed Forces and Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) as well as law enforcement and government agencies worldwide. They continue to provide ever more innovative watches to government and military forces globally.  In fact, they are the only current active military watch contractor to the US Government!

Marathon products are manufactured with the utmost care and go through various quality control measures. This attention to quality is supported by a commitment to excellent customer support to ensure the best possible product experience.
