Many thanks,

A superb Cyma WWW WWII military watch with the Calibre 234 mechanical hand wind movement. These particular watches were designed specifically for forces personnel in the Second World War between 1941 and 1943 and Cyma were one of the ‘dirty dozen’ manufacturers that were suppliers to the MOD.This particular watch is in excellent overall condition and has the typical design features that were specified to them in the design.

Case and Crown

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 screw in back is etched with the correct markings of WWW P. 5617 - 10617 and the arrow logo.Overall the case is in very good condition and retains its sharp edges with only some very small blemishes as you would expect for a military issue watch of this age.

Dial, Hands and Glass

The watch has the clean Cyma signed matt black dial which has retained its crisp look and with the arrow logo between the centre and 12 o’clock position. The white Arabic numerals at the hour positions are nice and clear with accompanying luminous dots which are quite prominent on this particular piece and have aged to a yellowy colour. The dial has the sub dial seconds display at the 6 o’clock position. This has the slightly more chunky baton hour and minute hands have long solid luminous inlays that remains complete but they do show some patina at the edges but again we believe they are original to the watch.

The dial, hands and plastic glass are all in very good condition for a 1940’s watch.

Movement

This watch has the Calibre 234 mechanical hand wind 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.
