For sale my Hamilton W10 isued to British Armed forces. These watches were made between 1965 and 1976, when they were replaced by the the Cabot Watch Company's (CWC) near-identical watch, which was in turned replaced with a quartz version from the same brand for the 80's.
It features a manually wound Swiss movement, with hacking feature which is running smoothly and keeping good time.
This watch is all original, featuring:
- Fixed spring bars
- Lume faded to a nice beige tone with time
- Swiss Hamitlon mnaually wound hacking movement, which is keeping good time
- Steel cushion case has some scratches and nicks, but nothing than might be expected for a military watch of this age.
- It's my understaning that the markings to the rear indicate that this was the 6050th watch issued in 1975 (6050/75), and that it is a w10 time measuring instrument (W10 -6645-99, which is the code for time instrument), and the broad arrow is indicative of this being British military property of the time (as seen on Milsubs etc).
- Black Nato strap
