The following are the specifications of the Gurkha Watch .
Gurkha is an British design watch .The Gurkhas have been part of the British Army for 200 years.”Better to die than be a coward” is the motto of the world-famous Nepalese Gurkha soldiers who are a crucial part of the British Army since 1815.
2.Full stainless Body
Gurkha Watch is made up of stainless steel 316L which is also known as inox steel or inox from French inoxydable (inoxidizable).
Stainless steels are most notable for their corrosion resistance, which increases with increasing chromium content. Additions of molybdenum increase corrosion resistance in reducing acids and against pitting attack in chloride solutions. Thus, there are numerous grades of stainless steel with varying chromium and molybdenum contents to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance, and familiar luster make it an ideal material for many applications where both the strength of steel and corrosion resistance are required.
3.Anti Scratch Sapphire Flat Crystal Glass
Sapphire Crystal is a very hard, transparent material made of crystallizing aluminum oxide at very high temperatures. Chemically, synthetic sapphire is the same as the natural sapphire used in jewelry, but without the coloring agents that give the gemstone its various hues. When it is heated, the synthetic sapphire forms round masses that are sliced into pieces with diamond-coated saws. These disks are then ground and polished into watch crystals. (One reason sapphire crystals are relatively expensive is that the tools required to make them are costly.) Sapphire (whether natural or synthetic) is one of the hardest substances on earth. It measures 9 on the Mohs scale, which is a system for rating the relative hardness of various materials. (Diamond measures 10, the highest rating.) Watch crystals made of synthetic sapphire are often marketed as “scratch resistant”, meaning they are very difficult – but not impossible – to scratch. Diamond can scratch them; so can man-made materials that incorporate silicon carbide, which, with a Mohs rating of between 9 and 10, is, like diamond, harder than sapphire. These materials are sometimes used to make simulated-stone surfaces for furniture or walls. The watch wearer should note that accidentally scraping a sapphire crystal against such a surface could cause a scratch.
A chronograph is a specific type of watch that is used as a stopwatch combined with a display watch. A basic chronograph has an independent sweep second hand; it can be started, stopped, and returned to zero by successive pressure on the stem. More complex chronographs use additional complications and can have multiple independent hands to measure seconds, minutes, hours and even tenths of a second. In addition, many modern chronographs use moveable bezels as tachymeters for rapid calculations of speed or distance. Louis Moinet invented the chronograph in 1816 for use in tracking astronomical objects. There are three types chronograph used in this watch dial they are :
- Outer Minute Track
- 1 Second Chronograph Timing Up To 1 Hour, and
- 24 Hour Read-Out
5.Metallic cross khukuri logo
Why cross khukuri?
It’s a powerful symbol of unique identity, courage and valor of the legendary Gurkhas. All Gurkha troops are issued with two khukuri, a Service No.1 (ceremonial) and a Service No.2 (exercise); in modern times members of the Brigade of Gurkhas receive training in its use. The weapon gained fame in the Gurkha War and its continued use through both World War I and World War II enhanced its eputation among both Allied troops and enemy forces. Its acclaim was demonstrated in North Africa by one unit’s situation report. It reads: “Enemy losses: ten killed, ours nil. Ammunition expenditure nil.” Elsewhere during the Second World War, the khukuri was purchased and used by other British, Commonwealth and US troops training in India, including the Chindits and Merrill’s Marauders. The notion of the Gurkha with his khukuri carried on through to the Falklands War.
In this watch to symbolize the bravery of the Gurkhas the cross Khukuri logo is metallically engraved.
6. ” Kaatar hunu Bhanda Marnu Ramro” and “The bravest of brave ” text inside dial
In this watch dial you can find the brave Gurkhas motto “kattar hunu bhanda Marnu Ramro” and “The bravest of the brave” in text version inside in edge of the dial. This motto refers that gurkhas prefer to die rather than to be coward. Which made Former Indian Army Chief of Staff Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw once to state that: “If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or he is a Gurkha.”
7.Quartz Japanese Movt.
In 1969, Seiko, the Japanese watchmakers introduced the quartz movement. The launch of this new technology challenged the traditional timepiece houses who relied on mechanical movement to power their watches. In response, most of the established watch companies released their own versions of quartz timepieces, kick-starting an era of battery-operated wristwatches.
How Quartz Movement Works
- A quartz timepiece is powered by a battery that sends an electrical signal through a piece of crystal quartz.
- The quartz vibrates 32768 times per second, creating a signal with a precise frequency.
- The vibrations are measured by the circuit and converted into a single pulse every second.
- The consistent movement of the watch hands is a result of this pulse.
Benefits Of Quartz Movement
Accurate Time: A quartz mechanism barely veers from the exact time, ensuring superior accuracy.
Ease Of Use: Quartz watches are battery-powered and do not require human intervention to keep ticking.
Low Maintenance: The low number of moving parts and the presence of a battery ensure that quartz watches are lower maintenance.
Less Expensive: Mechanical and automatic watches require more watchmaking hours and skill. Quartz watches are hence cheaper.
Durability: A quartz timepiece has fewer moving parts that may require repairing, making it more durable than a mechanical watch.
8.Water Resistant To 50 Meters
This watch is designed to not be easily harmed or affected by water or to not allow water to pass through easily. Water Resistant 50 Meters / 5 Atmospheres / 5 Bar. So you’ve got a watch with 50 meters of water resistance. Congratulations, you are hereby allowed to swim with it. However, you should minimize exposure to the water and probably still take it off. And by no means whatsoever should you dive with your watch.
9. 2 Year Guarantee
It is a written guarantee promising to repair or replace an article if necessary within a specified period.” A warranty is a type of guarantee; in the case of a product guarantee/product warranty, it’s basically the same thing – the company undertakes to repair or replace your goods if they go wrong. so, this watch has 2 years of warranty to our beloved customers.
This box is made with plastic coated with carbon paper with the cross khukuri logo . This box contains the instructions guide and watch stand inside it.
