The G10 is a great watch, I accidentaly showered in mine this morning :o

Still going strong, the water ressistance is 3atm I think. I don't normally shower in a watch even those that are 20atm. If you think about it, a CWC G10 must have some resistance to water or it would be useless in the field. I haven't seen any specs for water resistance on the G10 but it must be slash proof at least.

Darned good watch. :) ;)

It is a CWC Quartz watch issued to British military - I believe the G10 comes from the form you have to fill in to get one - no doubt someone will know for sure. The latest models have a snap on back, most models for sale are the older models with a battery hatch.

As Roy has sold out of G10's, if you are interested in buying one I can mail you a link to another UK company that will sell to US residents. But, only as Roy has sold out.

The watches are genuine issue, unlike some variations that were not. A G10 would be a good addition to any watch collection, not just for those interested in mil spec watches.

I think the name "Lord Elgin" came from Elgin's first womens watch the Lady Elgin. I guess they thought that lord was the masculine of lady, which it is in England.

Yes it probably was a marketing ploy :rolleyes:

Darned nice watches, though.

I suspect that the Lord Elgin I won on Watchbay is an even bigger marketing ploy made by the current far eastern owners of the Elgin brand. Sad. :(
