2.Stainless steel 316L back
Gurkha Watch is made up of stainless steel 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 steels resistance to
Gurkha Watch is made up of stainless steel which is also known as inox steel or inox from French inoxydable (inoxidizable), is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass and a maximum of 1.2% carbon by mass.
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 steels 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.

Mineral glass is a scratch and impact-resistant glass most commonly used in watchmaking. It has superb reflective properties, strength and clarity and is reasonably priced. It is referred to as “MG” in the watch industry. Mineral glass gets hardened by a tempering process and is more likely to break than plexiglass. Although this is the case, mineral glass remains more scratch-resistant than plexiglass. Mineral glass crystals are coated in a hard material which makes them less likely to be scratched.
6.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 khukri, 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 khukri 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 khukri carried on through to the Falklands War.
In this watch to symbolize the bravery of the Gorkhas the cross Khukuri logo is metallically engraved.
7.Engraved back dial With Cross Khukuri, ” Kaatar hunu Bhanda Marnu Ramro” and “The bravest of brave “
In this watch dial you can find the brave Gorkhas 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 Gorkhas 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.”
8.Water Resistant To 30 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 30 Meters / 3 Atmospheres / 3 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.
