Description

Chronograph watches made by CWC were issued to pilot navigators in all branches of the British forces from circa 1974 to 1984. This genuine MOD issued CWC was issued to the Royal Navy in '74 confirmed by the NATO stop numbers 0552 and 252/74 stamped on the rear of the characteristic asymmetric case. The watch is in excellent original condition, not polished with some light pitting to the rear of the case and some plate loss to one of the pushers. The original dial has aged perfectly, again evidence of light corrosion to hands consistent with age. The movement is a Valjoux 7734 manual wind chronograph, signed Hamilton on the bridge. The identical movement was used in the Hamilton dialled version and the movements were often interchanged when the watches were serviced by the RNs own watchmakers. Original crown and crystal fitted. It's been fully serviced by ourselves, with a crystal cut and polish and is presented on a new NATO type fabric strap. Dimensions are 44mm x 39mm.

'The prices of these have risen sharply in the last 10 years such is the interest now in military issued watches. We've seen many examples listed around the 3K mark..'
