Omega WWW Dirty Dozen British Army Wristwatch c.1945

The WWW’s 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 WWW’s 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 watch for sale is in excellent overall condition having been newly serviced by our highly skilled and experienced horologist.
The original factory dial is in beautiful condition without any obvious flaws or blemishes.
The sword hands, seconds hand and crown are all correct to the original specification of the watch.
As expected, there are a number of fairly minor scratches and marks to the outer casing of the watch.
The Omega 30T2 calibre movement is currently running well and keeping excellent time.

The watch comes complete with a free six-month warranty, newly fitted NATO strap and quality hand-made leather watch pouch.

Diameter: 35mm (ex crown)
