WWW Dirty Dozen Watch


SKU: CHW5189 Category: Tags: , , ,

WWW stands for Watch, Wrist, Waterproof and was the descriptive code used by the British Army to identify it as a piece of equipment.

An original Cyma from the 1940’s that was later part of the so called ‘Dirty Dozen’ collection of British Military watches from World War 2. Admittedly not the rarest of them but a part of the collection nether the less.

This particular Cyma is a bit different to what you would usually find when looking to add or start a collection.

Its priced according to its condition and so no offers would be considered, this Cyma although in fair all round condition does have some factors that need to be highlighted.

The lume from the hour hand has disintegrated, many of these watches were relumed over the years however we know this one to although be missing that lume it is an original hand to the watch. There are a few options if you wanted to, can be left alone or can be relumed professionally. We have decided to leave it up to you to decide what would work best.

The spring bars have been cut to allow for a certain strap after the watch was retired from military service. This happened to quite a few in that once it was ready for civilian life after service the rigid spring bars were cut to allow for a selection of different straps etc to suit what ever the wearer required. Can be refixed into place but again we have left as it is and left to you to decide what works best.

38mm stainless steel case shows general wear and tear although nothing significant but remains in unpolished condition. Black dial with some minor aging in the pitting of the dial with the hour markers achieving a natural patina from over the years going a beautiful yellow / cream colour.

Signed Cyma dial, Broad arrow MOD signed, case back signed WWW P6553 / 11553.

To summarise not the most perfect condition but original and not been tampered with. A great watch to do what suits your collection best. For more images and or questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
