Eterna WWW Dirty Dozen British Army Wristwatch c.1945
The WWW watches are perhaps the most popular and collectible watches amongst all those issued to the British Army. This is perhaps because they were the first to be specially designed and custom made for the British Army.
WWW stands for Watch, Wrist, Waterproof and was the descriptive code used by the British Army to identify it as a piece of equipment.
These watches began being manufactured and issued to the British Army in early 1945.
There were 12 Swiss manufacturers of the W.W.W.’s and as such, the collection is commonly referred to by collectors and dealers alike as “The Dirty Dozen”.
Interestingly, the watch for sale features an MoD replacement dial which are scarce and seldom seen on an Eterna WWW.
Only around 5,000 Eterna WWW watches were made for the British Army during WW2. As such good original examples of these watches are very sought after by collectors and can often be difficult to find.
The Eterna WWW for sale is in excellent overall condition having been recently serviced by our highly skilled and experienced horologist.
The MOD replacement dial is in lovely condition with no obvious flaws or blemishes.
The sword hands, seconds hand and crown are all correct to the original specification of the watch.
The casing is in excellent condition with very few noticeable marks or scratches.
The 520 calibre movement is in very good condition and is currently running well and keeping excellent time and includes its original dust cover.
The watch comes complete with a free six month warranty, newly fitted NATO strap and a quality hand made leather watch pouch.
