NSN : Pending
* Free Black Mil Series 22MM Band & Black Watch Taco *
Limited Run 120 Pieces - Final Production Run June 2017
The Maratac™ Pilot Swiss Quartz watch was privately contracted for a local agency. The second hand sweeps like a mechanical watch at 1/4 second increments, for more of a "fluid sweep". The watch features a central second sweep hand. The watch features a sterile clean dial, with no date and no branding. This watch is made to exemplify the purest form of time which provides a simplistic feel to the watch. Maratac™ has decided to use a Swiss Quartz ISA 9500 - 1010 movement known for its exceptional quality and accuracy. The Swiss ISA movement provides 39 month runtime with 4 second step - low battery indicator.
The Large Swiss Quartz Maratac™ Pilot watch is truly a "Manly" watch at a little over 46mm wide and 75 grams. This watch is ideal for both formal and casual events and is truly built to last with a robust sapphire domed crystal.
The CAGE: 5VKB6 is engraved at the 6 o'clock position between lugs.

Wanted to like this watch but will not keep accurate time; as it loses an hour plus a week - and often more if it is not worn daily. Caveat emptor !
Very nicely made. "Sweep" second hand is cool - more an automatic look w/quartz conveniance. No visible branding on dial creates interest as well. Be sure to watch the video to see the proper way to set the time. I also got the deployant silicon strap - the webbing strap that cones with is fine, but upgrading your step gives the watch an even better look.
Great addition to the family- transaction was smooth.Very nice watch for the price point. I would recommend this watch !!!
completely unique, tough, and distinct.
I am impressed with the quality. Functional and solid as described. The Maratac Pilot watch is simple, straightforward and hefty. I appreciate Countycomm's dedication to providing the public with choices of quality pieces. This watch is a keeper!
Purchased this watch as a gift for my son in law- he is thrilled, good weight and size

Has a real wrist presence without being flashy. The movement really "makes" the watch. It's a Swiss Quartz but sweeps like an automatic. Best of both worlds super accurate and aesthetically pleasing.
Had an issue with mine, second hand would stop. Emailed and got an RMA number. One week later I had a brand new watch at my doorstep - east coast too.
And by the way it looks really good and works well with the Strapcode Super Oyster II Stainless bracelet (22mm) (straight end links).
I priorly purchased the automatic version. The sweep second complication was too small for my occupation , being an EMT. This version has the large sweep second hand which is great when you are doing field pulse or respiration count. Very visible and I have not taken it off since arrival. I am very satisified with this watch. See for yourself and enjoy.
I bought this watch in Feb. 2017 and it has become my new favorite. I work in public safety and this watch literally hasn't skipped a beat and has taken all the abuse I could dish out on land and sea. My *only* complaint I could list is the lack of a date indicator but other than that I love it. The large dial makes it easy to read day or night - a must to have for even even the small-time watch enthusiast.
This is my 3rd Maratac watch the other two are automatics and I find myself wearing this one more and more. I love automatics but having to set the time if I don't wear one for a few days... guess I am lazy. I like having a watch on that I know that no one else will have on I get asked all the time about them. The clean nature of the dials overall look of the case they have created a timeless style that I am naturally drawn to.

I was always in the market for a pilot watch with good lume with a quartz movement. This watch checks all the boxes. I've swapped the stock NATO strap for a leather strap and have been wearing it ever since
Smooth, clean dial. Luminious numerials on a black matte finnish. The watch keeps execellent time and the automatic-styled movement of the central second hand, despite it being a quartz watch - is a nice touch. The watch has a solid feel. The watch band itself is thin but strong, and affords computer users a welcome respite whilst wearing the watch when working at a keyboard. It does not feel like your wearing a clunky "tank tread " around your wrist nor a thick silicone bracelet. Due to the fact the strap fits under the watch, it provides grip and comfort to hold the watch in place on your wrist. No more stainless steel sticking to your skin all day. And the strap holds its position when the watch is taken off so you don't have to rethread it through the watch lugs if you take it off. All in all, a great timepiece if you just need the time without all the logos and advirtaising most watches today slap on the dial.
I purchased both the mid size and large quartz watches when they were on sale. I use the mid size as it just fits my wrist better. The large is a big watch for me. If you have bigger arms then use the larger. Most folks will just use the mid-size. Both are easy to read. If you want to see the time all night till dawn just hold it under your cell phones flashlight for 40 seconds to a minute. The illumination will be dim but readable till the sun comes up.
I've been looking for a watch like this for a while. Clean face without unnecessary features and best of all, no logos or branding on the face. The only thing that would improve this watch would be to offer it with a black case and as an automatic.
I've had mechanical watches from County Comm for years but as I work at home I may not actually put on the watch for a couple of days and it would run down and have to be reset. These versions solve this and run for 3+ yrs on a cheap battery. The hacking movement is a nice bonus too.
I was worried that this large watch would feel clunky after being used to the mid-pilot watch but it doesn't, especially after replacing the band with a nice infinitely adjustable Milanese one. Plus the larger size and central second hand let me read it easily without look for reading glasses given even my elderly eyesight.
I've been eyeing this watch ever since CC started carrying them. I just bought one and it came today. It keeps time accurately, (well at least for the first few hours I have it on, LOL!) I have never owned a watch with such an amazing time setting mechanism. Really nice quality watch.
I have had mine for about 4 months now. Great looking watch, everyone asks me where I got ti. It keeps EXCEPTIONAL time. I have set it once in 4 months and it's no more than 4-5 seconds off. The case is well machined and I love the domed crystal. I ordered some of the hand sewn leather bands (brown and black) and they compliment this watch well. I just love it.
