What’s On Offer
Here we have a fantastic Royal Marines issued British Military CWC dive watch, this one was issued in 1995. The statement rotating outer black bezel showcases the depth of the black dial which in turn allows the Tritium hour markers to pop with their attractive butter-yellow patina. The 'statement' big triangle marker at 12 o'clock and chunky lumed hour markers punch from the dial as do the signature, minute markers, and Arabic numerals, giving the watch a current look that can hold its own against any modern-day tool watch.
The case shows slight signs of wear as does the unidirectional bezel as one can expect to see on any military-issued watch, especially one that was likely worn for the purpose intended! The fixed lugs are perfectly straight and the screw-down crown secures tightly.
Case back is engraved with the Royal Marines issue number 0555/6645-99 7573314 together with the British Government ‘broad arrow’ property symbol and the watch issue number and year, which is extremely low at number 067/95.
Overall a great 'tool' watch, which was recently serviced and a new battery fitted by John Senior the renowned military watchmaker. The watch appears unpolished and with some pleasing signs of use, a great everyday wearer to add to your existing collection or as a one off special piece!
