Here we have a 2023 Marathon Steel Navigator SSNAV-D Quartz with a 41mm asymmetric case which is Parkerized, a chemical treatment for a hardened surface, that is resistant to corrosion and wear, the distinctive shape sits on your wrist like a cushion. Drilled lugs make for easy strap changes. The Marathon Navigator was developed in 1986 with the assistance of the Kelly Air Force Base. A lug-to-lug length of 48mm and a case thickness of 10.5mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence, and on the right side is a screw-down crown recessed into the side of the case for protection against knocks. A bi-directional bezel has deep knurling for grip and a black 12-hour GMT insert clearly marked holding a sapphire crystal above a black dial. An outer minute track has gas-filled tritium tubes at the hour surrounding 12-hour Arabic numerals and smaller 24-hour numerals underneath, highly legible and useful for a pilot or adventurer wishing to know the time. Between the 4 and 5 a date window, syringe-style hands have gas-filled Tritium tubes that remain charged much longer than luminescent paint complemented by a red arrow tipped sweeping second hand, at 12 o’clock we have the Marathon motif and printed underneath H3 and the radioactive symbol. In 1973 the H3 and Radiation symbol was added to US military specification requirements, the H3 stands for Tritium which is radioactive and gives that particularly long-lasting bright lume. On the reverse, we have the battery hatch and the US military specification numbers, inside a 3 jewel Quartz movement. This watch is sold with its Marathon box and Marathon Paperwork.
