FS: Longines “Weems” Mk VIIA RAF Wristwatch c.1940 *LINK*

Dear All,

For Sale is this very rare and original Longines “Weems” Mk VIIA RAF Air Force wristwatch c.1940.

The watch was issued to pilots and navigators and features a moveable outer bezel which is set to the seconds hand to calculate longitude in order to aid navigation.

The watch takes its name from Lt.Cdr P.V. Weems who was a well know aviator, navigator and instructor at the Naval Officer School at Annapolis, Maryland, in the U.S.A.

The watch for sale is in excellent overall condition and is one of the very best examples we have ever seen.

The dial has aged beautifully and is free from any obvious flaws or blemishes.

As expected, there are a number of minor scratches and marks to the outer casing of the watch which are commensurate with age.

The glass is in very good condition with no obvious scratches.

The beautiful blue steel hands are in excellent condition and are correct to the original specification of the watch.

The 12.68N calibre movement is currently running well and keeping excellent time.

Please see photos below.

The watch is listed for sale on our website priced at £6,950 which includes fitted leather strap and quality hand-made leather watch pouch. This price includes free shipping for members of Chronotrader!

All our items are guaranteed to be completely genuine and authentic. We offer a fourteen day "no quibble" money back guarantee on all the items we sell together with a full six-month warranty on all our wristwatches and clocks. This means that you can buy from us with complete confidence.

For further information on the watch for sale please feel free to call us on 0207 117 2807 or email us direct via

Many thanks and regards,
