Omega 6B/159 RAF Pilots Wristwatch c.1943

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

RAF watches from this period were supplied by several prestigious watch manufacturers including Longines, Jaeger Le-Coultre and Omega. All these watches followed a standard specification, which included a white dial with black Arabic numerals, centre seconds and blued steel non-luminous hands. These watches are commonly referred to by their RAF stores reference number 6B/159. This RAF stores reference refers to aircraft navigation equipment.

The beautiful Omega 6B/159 watch for sale was produced in 1943 at the heart of WW2. The mid-case of the watch is made of stainless steel as opposed to the cheaper alloy variants of later examples, which makes it extremely desirable to vintage military watch collectors and Omega enthusiasts.
