Several prestigious watch manufacturers from this period supplied RAF watches including Longines, Jaeger Le-Coultre and Omega. Most of these watches followed a standard specification, including a white dial with black Arabic numerals, centre seconds and blued steel non-luminous hands.

These watches are commonly referred to by their RAF stores reference number 6B/159. This RAF stores reference refers to aircraft navigation equipment.

What's on Offer

This watch is in incredible condition given its age of over 80 years! The once white dial has aged beautifully to an almost sepia colour and presents with a light spattering of patina, those who appreciate the natural ageing process of vintage watches will appreciate how well this watch has been preserved. The simple dial design with bold Arabic numerals and blued steel hands is synonymous with military watches of the time. on the case back one can note the original military enrgavings which include the pheon, the military arrow that denotes the watch as the property of the MoD. These watches are few and far between and it is certainly rare to find one is such wonderful condition. WE are please to offer it for sale in working order, running well and keeping good time. This is a must for any military collection - now is the time!
