During 1944 and 1945, twelve watchmakers (Buren, Cyma, Eterna, Grana, JLC, Lemania, Longines, IWC, Omega, Record, Timor, and Vertex) produced a total of approximately 150,000 of these almost identical timepieces. As these watches became highly sought after by collectors over the ensuing decades, they became known as "The Dirty Dozen" - earning this nickname from the 1964 war film of the same moniker. Members of this exclusive club are now in constant demand as few remain in good and original condition, and as production volumes differed widely across the 12 wartime manufacturers. Omega made approximately 25000 of these watches.

What's on Offer

This is one of the nicest examples of the Omega Dirty Dozen watches we have seen recently - the rich black dial has been very well preserved and boasts the bold Arabic numerals, outer minute track, sub-seconds dial at 6 o'clock and the military pheon we expect to see as the hallmarks that all of these watches carry. The dial still boasts the original lume that allowed for visibility in low light, and it has aged to a beautiful light pumpkin colour. The case and lugs are also in great shape and the case back displays the original military engravings (WWW /|\ Y8368 10672567) we would expect to see alongside the military pheon again - the arrow which denotes the watch as property of the MoD. We are very pleased to offer such a well-preserved example of the Omega Dirty Dozen watch in original condition in full working order. Still fully functional, this watch wears beautifully and offers a workhorse of a timepiece as well as a genuine piece of British military history, a superb addition to any collection.
