From my private collection this 1975 CWC W10 - a (British Army) military issue watch. The watch back is numbered/signed /I\ 523-8290 W10-6645-99 5766/75. The watch has a manual wind "hacking feature" ETA 2750 movement housed inside a brushed stainless steel uni-shell case.A typical black military dial with hourly luminous Tritium markers and Arabic numerals.
For a watch that is an approximately 44 year old MOD issued military watch this is a great piece of history and in good condition.
The Case and Crown
Cushion shaped the brushed steel case measures approximately 36mm in diameter without the crown. The case is unpolished in very good condition for a military watch, the brushing is quite hard to catch on camera for an amateur like and it is far better visible in real life than in the photos.
Typical of a military watch, this CWC also comes with fixed lug bars for added strength. The watch comes on a brand new olive nato.
Box and Papers
These watches were obviously supplied through the MOD, so as such would not have had any box or paperwork at the time of issue
The Dial and Hands
The black dial which is typical of this style and type of military watch is signed CWC with a “T” in a circle, which denotes it is the original Tritium dial. It also says “Swiss” below the 6 marker and has the MOD arrow (Pheon) mark on the dial above the 6. The fantastic matt black dial is in great shape. The original Tritium lume is mostly intact. The Tritium dots on the rail track minute marker ring on the outer edge of this dial mostly have a fantastic yellow colour. The same lume is also present in the original set of hands on this particular watch and has gone a really nice vanilla with age.
The movement in this watch is a ETA 2750, a 17 jewel hand wound movement with a hacking function for accurate time setting as you would expect from a watch supplied to the Armed Forces. The hacking function works correctly and the watch runs keeping fine vintage time.
The watch will be well packed and shipped insured and registered
