This CWC G10 watch was issued in 1990, just in time for the first Gulf war, and it still follows the principles set out on the dirty dozen watches of 1944. PLEASE SEE EDIT BELOW
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the issue number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being issued in 1990.
CWC are reknown for their military watches – after all they were set up in 1972 just to supply the armed forces in the UK. Their early watches, including the diver that replaced the Rolex MilSub as the Navy’s choice watch, sell for thousands. You can still buy a new, non issued G10 from them for £199, but the issued watches are the more popular ones among collectors.
This is a nice example. The fixed bars are straight, and the battery hatch is not damaged by tool marks. The gun metal case is matt finished with just a few light wear marks, and the hands and dial are crisp and clean. The NATO strap is new, and a new battery will be fitted prior to delivery.
EDIT – It appears that this watch has had a replacement movement, and the ETA movement has been swapped with a Swiss Ronda movement, and the sword hands are also later replacements. As such we have reduced the price accordingly. All is working well, but it is important that we acknowledge the difference.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
