Marathon x Jeep

Today, we’ve got word of a brand new collaboration. Marathon is a company we’ve been aware of, but it’s been awhile since we reviewed them (you can see that here); we are working on getting a new loaner in. In the meantime, we’ve got this new launch that went live today. If you’re going to go off-roading in your Jeep, you probably want a watch that can hold up to the activity. Enter the latest Marathon x Jeep collaboration.

Marathon x Jeep: General Purpose Officer’s Series

Dive into the modern reinterpretation of the iconic Marathon WWII-issued dial with the Officer’s Series. Crafted to honor the classic design while infusing it with contemporary flair, these Marathon x Jeep field watches are a testament to timeless style. Picture this: a sleek black dial adorned with fully-lumed Aged-Radium numerals, reminiscent of the rugged spirit of the Jeep Wrangler 1941 Limited Edition. The 316L steel case, sporting a parkerized finish, not only reduces glare but also enhances durability against corrosion.

But wait, there’s more! Choose between the hand-wound mechanical (SSGPM) or quartz (SSGPQ) versions, both equipped with 12-hour and 60-minute scales for utmost functionality. The 41mm SSGPM houses an 18-jewel Swiss-made Sellita SW210-1 mechanical movement, while its quartz counterpart, the 41mm SSGPQ, boasts a Swiss-made ETA F06.402 HeavyDrive-PreciDrive quartz movement. And let’s not forget about visibility – with MaraGlo illumination on the hour hand, minute hand, and Arabic hour numerals, you’re covered in any lighting condition. Plus, each watch comes with a stylish 3-Piece Leather Strap Kit crafted from Crazy Horse leather. You can get it with a quartz movement for $500, or a mechanical movement for $650.

Alternatively, the Search and Rescue Series

Embark on an adventure with the Search and Rescue series, designed to blend the best of military aesthetics with cutting-edge technology. Featuring self-winding automatic (GSAR®) and quartz (TSAR®) versions, these watches exude confidence and reliability. Inspired by the Jeep dashboard instruments, the distinct “red line” indicator now serves as a 15-minute count-up, adding a dash of rugged charm to the dial.

Ready for action, each timepiece is equipped with an oversized 60min/120-click unidirectional dive bezel and boasts an impressive 300m water resistance. Illuminated by a combination of tritium gas tubes and MaraGlo technology, the dial and full handset ensure visibility even in the darkest of nights.

The 41mm GSAR houses a Swissmade Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement, while its quartz counterpart, the 41mm TSAR, features a Swiss-made ETA F06.412 HeavyDrivePreciDrive quartz movement. And don’t miss the intricate details – from the engraved seven slot Jeep grille to the Willys star on the knurled steel crown, every aspect pays homage to our shared heritage. As with the Officer model, this comes in both a quartz ($1,200) or mechanical ($1,500) movement. You can check out the full range over at
