Omega WWW Dirty Dozen British Army Watch c.1945

The WWW watches are perhaps the most popular and collectible military 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 WWW watches and as such, the collection is commonly referred to by collectors and dealers alike as “The Dirty Dozen”.

Only around 25,000 Omega 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 Omega WWW is in wonderful overall condition.
The dial is in lovely condition with no obvious flaws or blemishes.
The MoD pencil hands, seconds hand and crown are all correct to the original specification of the watch.
As expected, there are several fairly minor scratches and marks to the outer casing of the watch, which are commensurate with age.
The Omega 30T2 calibre movement is in excellent condition and is running well and keeping good time.

The watch comes complete with a free six-month warranty, two new NATO straps and a bespoke presentation watch box.

Diameter: 35mm (ex crown)
