Omega 6B/159 RAF Pilots Wristwatch c.1942

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

RAF watches from this period were supplied by a number of 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 of 6B/159. This RAF stores reference refers to aircraft navigation equipment.

The beautiful Omega 6B/159 watch for sale was produced in 1942 at the heart of WW2. The watch is all original and the mid-case is made of stainless steel which makes it rarer and more desirable to that of other examples which are often made of alloy.
