Timor WWW Dirty Dozen British Army Wristwatch 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 13,000 Timor 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 Timor WWW is in lovely overall condition and is sold having been recently serviced.
The original factory dial is in wonderful condition with no obvious flaws or blemishes.
The 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 Timor 6060 calibre movement is in good condition and still retains its original dust cover. The watch is currently running well and keeping very good time.

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

Diameter: 36mm (ex crown)
