GPM Government Reissue Mechanical Ben - Ltd Ed 600pcs Ref. WW194003SS-BEN

1 Review

For the past few decades, Marathon Watch has faithfully crafted timepieces for governments and military regimes including the United States and Canadian armies. Delving into the rich history of this Swiss watchmaker, we discovered that the brand we now know to be Marathon Watch was founded in 1904 as Weinsturm Watch and was later renamed Wein Brothers. Back in 1939, Morris Wein founded this brand and supplied fine watches famed for their precision throughout North America. Since the 1940s, Marathon has been manufacturing time instruments for the Allied Forces. Till date, the horological baton has been passed on to the fourth generation of the Wein family which continues to live out the brand’s reputation by producing a wide range of instruments that measure time, temperature and distance.


Marathon GPM Government Reissue Mechanical Ben - Ltd Ed 600pcs Ref. WW194003SS-BEN
Marathon Watch is popular among collectors as one of the few brands that combines military durability with Swiss engineering and craftsmanship to ensure the highest quality and precision. These traits are showcased in the new Marathon GPM Government Reissue Mechanical Ben Limited Edition Ref. WW194003SS-BEN with a limited production of only 600 pieces. Though not specifically appointed as such, this watch is a reissue of the Marathon GG-W-113 that retains almost all of this 80s model’s design features, making it a much-anticipated timepiece for military watch collectors.

The acronym “GPM” stands for “General Purpose Mechanical”, which hints at the impressive functionality of these officially-issued military field watches. A simple yet purposeful mechanical tool watch, this numbered limited-edition remake of Marathon’s mid-80s classic line-up exudes a timeless military charisma that graces your wrist with a suave handsome look.


Made in Switzeland, Approved by US Government

Discover the 17 jewel Benrus ETA 2801 movement at the very heart of this timepiece, the exact same movement that had powered the original Marathon GG-W-113 in the past. This calibre has a power reserve of at least 36 hours and is hand-wound through a pressure-fit crown which allows for a 100m water resistance.

With a petite diameter of 39mm and a height of 11mm, the GPM Ben stays true to the typical military field watch dimensions. The timepiece shows off a 316L stainless steel case with a full satin finishing that removes any pesky inessential reflections. This matte case flaunts a unique integrated bezel design with steep convex slopes from its case sides to its dial opening allowing for clear time display at a glance. Marvel at the sleek curved case shape of this watch, extending outwards to serve as crown guards by flanking the push-pull crown, which allows for easy manipulation. Its L-shaped lugs are continuous with its case, thrusting the spotlight onto the drilled lug holes that enable convenient strap changes.


Based on the GG-W-113 specifications since 1960s
Protected by a flat sapphire crystal, the syringe-styled handset of this timepiece incorporates tritium gas tubes with MaraGlow and a total of 15 tritium gas tubes (Isotope H3) are applied on top of its Arabic hour markers. Featuring a micro gas tube at the tip of the second hand, this watch allows for maximum legibility in the dark for long periods of time without the need for an external light source. With a set of 24-hour markers forming an inner circle and the coveted Marathon brand logo, this timepiece boasts a minimalistic dial with no distractions for optimal readability.

The GPM Ben comes with a 16mm black nylon textile strap which is in line with the adventure-themed military watch and effectively elevates the timepiece’s rugged aesthetics. I adore how Marathon throws in a complimentary khaki NATO strap that caters to any wardrobe with striking urban and military vibes. To top its grand look off, this watch is ushered into your collection with an additional morale patch and a micro fibre cloth.


Tritium gas tubes and MaraGlow™ that glows 24 hours

All in all, it is apparent that each Marathon timepiece is manufactured with the utmost care and undergoes stringent quality checks before it is launched. This attention to detail and finesse is embodied in the Marathon GPM Government Reissue Mechanical Ben Limited Edition Ref. WW194003SS-BEN, which bears testament to the expertise of this renowned watchmaker. And even though the watch industry is perpetually saturated with military-style tool watches, none can hold a candle to the GG-W-113...until now! The GPM Ben shines, with no frills but many thrills awaiting to be brought to light on your wrist. With its excellent functionality and great value for money, this general-purpose watch is truly an exceptional timepiece for your watch collection.

Comes with Sage Green Ballistic Nylon Strap and Desert Tan Morale Patch
