For sale is this Timor WWW - one of the twelve watches constituting the 'Dirty Dozen'. These are the first watches issued by the British MoD according to military specifications and were delivered in 1945. I'm sure you're familiar with them since earlier, but there is a lot to read online if you'd like to know more. For example: https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/dirty-dozen-twelve-military-watches
Case: Great looking stepped steel case, 36,5 mm. Fixed bars, 18 mm. Engravings on the caseback looks are clear and intact (please see attached photo).
Dial and hands: Pleasing dial and hands. A large portion of the radium around the indexes is missing, whether due to somebody removing it or falling off during the years - i don't know. I can't see any glow from neither the hands nor the dial, so perhaps somebody has replaced the radium during its long life. Either way, looks beautiful.
Movement: Timor cal. 6060. Super smooth winding and I've noticed no time deviation. Bought it under the premise of it being serviced earlier this fall, but I do not have any documents supporting that.
Strap: The watch comes on a close to new green nato strap and a really nice special made A.F.0210 replica strap (http://af0210strap.com/). See attached pictures.
Price: 1 000€ net to me + paypal fees (or wire) and shipping.
Shipping: I am located in Stockholm, Sweden and ship worldwide via Swedish Postal Service EMS with tracking. Shipping rate (45€) is not included in the price.
Returns: If you are happy, then I am happy. If any problems would occur, we'll work it out together so that we're both happy in the end.
I'd be happy to send you some more pictures and information via email. Just ask!
