The MWC Vietnam Watches are virtually identical in appearance to the watches used by American troops in the Vietnam war during the 1960s and 1970s and they produce two variants in both covert black and the original olive drab. The actual US Military Issue models were made of plastic because they were deemed disposable, of course the problem with making their own Vietnam watches in plastic is they would be in effect be very basic just like the originals with all the same durability issues hence they decided to completely rethink the watch and whilst keeping the original appearance, weight and feel they switched to all metal construction which means that although the watch looks very close to the originals it is vastly superior in both durability and general quality.
