Cyma WWW “Dirty Dozen” WWII military watch with the Calibre 234 mechanical hand wound movement. These particular watches were designed specifically for forces personnel during the Second World War and were delivered in approximately in 1945. Cyma were one of the ‘dirty dozen’ manufacturers that were suppliers to the MOD. 

This is the original more substantial matt stainless steel case with brushed lugs and sides and polished solid bezel and what we think is the original crown. The back is etched with the correct markings of /|\ WWW P127xx – 177xx. 

Overall the case is in excellent condition considering it has likely seen action, and has some very small blemishes, most of which can only be seen through a loop,. 

The watch has the Cyma signed matt black dial, which has started to go slightly tropical. The dial is signed and has the military arrow logo with white Arabic numerals at the hour positions which have started to cream slightly with age and the accompanying luminous dots have darkened to a deep grey colour although can still be clearly seen. These luminous dots are original and still glow as do the hands under UV light. 

The dial is typical of the W.W.W. “Dirty Dozen” designs with subsidiary seconds display at 6 o’clock position. The hour and minute hands are of the pencil type and  have long solid luminous inlays which remain intact and have some patina at the edges but we believe are original to the watch. 

This watch has the Calibre 234 mechanical hand wound movement with 15 jewels which, as with all military watches, is well known for its resilience and good time keeping. This particular movement is numbered 37****. 

The movement is running strong as you would expect and comes with a 12 months guarantee. This is an excellent example of the Cyma WWW WWII military watch worthy of being added to any “Dirty Dozen” collection.
