Part of the well know and well collected ‘Dirty Dozen’ collection of British military watches from WW2. The Omega being one of the 12 brands the Ministry of Defence contracted to supply watches to be used by Military personal throughout the war.

The Omega although not the rarest of them all (thought to be 25,000 made) it is one that is becoming increasingly harder to find that remains original without having had work carried out to the dial. This is one that although shows some dissolving of the number hour markers with aged hands it is one that appears to be original which to many is a decisive factor on when considering adding to a collection.

In addition and although it may not add a vast amount of value it is of interest and importance to have some provenance of which this Omega does. Accompanying the watch is a copy of a hand written document detailing who it was that was issued the watch and for what purpose and indeed how it ended up to be available today.

Issued to a Sargent from the Parachute Regiment known as the ‘Red Beret’ in the second world war. War regularly over the last 30 years and having passed through our workshop now in fine working order.

Black Matte dial with off white hour markers and track, subsidiary seconds to the bottom of the dial. As with all Dirty Dozen watches and the requirement of the MOD the black dial contrasts with the hands and hour markers to make for easy reading.

35mm stainless steel case, fixed rigid pin bars, manual wind 30T2 Caliber. Dial signed Omega and with the MOD Broad Arrow. Caseback markings clearly visible.

A really good example of a Dirty Dozen watch that has seen service, remained original, has some documented history and to be honest has been worn as was intended – a watch.
