FS: Movado 6B/234 RAF Pilots Wristwatch c.1942 *LINK*

Dear All

For sale is this Movado 6B/234 RAF Pilots Wristwatch c.1942

These beautiful wrist watches were issued to RAF navigators and pilots during the Second World War.

The wonderful Movado 6B/234 watch for sale was produced in 1942 at the heart of WW2. The watch is one of the very best examples we have ever seen and is in superb original condition.

Interestingly, the Movado for sale was originally issued with the stores reference of 6B/159, indicating that it was flight equipment issued for the use of navigators and pilots only. However, the watch was later re-issued with the reference 6B/234, meaning it was downgraded for general service by airborne and ground crew.

The watch sale is in excellent original condition having been sympathetically serviced by one of our highly skilled and experienced horologists.

The original factory dial has aged beautifully and is in very good condition. There are a few minor blemishes to the dial in places.

The beautiful hands and crown are all correct to the original specification of the Movado 6B/159 watch.

The stainless steel outer casing has numerous scratches and marks commensurate with age.

The Movado 75 calibre movement is all correct and is in excellent condition and is currently running well and keeping good time.

Please see photos below:

The watch is listed for sale on our website priced at £2,495 which includes a newly fitted NATO 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,
