c.1945 IWC Mark X WWW 'Dirty Dozen' British Military watch 

Another very fine example of the highly collectable ‘Dirty dozen’ watch. The first ever watches to be completely custom designed and made for the British Army.

The IWC holds a special reputation amongst this collection, due not only to its renowned calibre 83 movement (argued to be the nicest movement of the dirty dozen collection), but also to its rarity. Only the Grana and Longines Greenlander editions were produced in smaller quantities.

The case on this piece has seen very little wear given its age and intended function, with only very minor scuffs visible on the non-crown case side. The case back has very light marks. The entirely original dial with stepped sub seconds at 6 o'clock is in beautiful condition having faded and filled out with deep vintage tones, all highlighted by the pristine reflective hands (see photos). 

Serviced by the renowned expert military watchmaker, John Senior, the watch will be delivered with a 12 month guarantee.
