WWW Record Dirty Dozen - British Military Watch c.1945


c.1944 Record WWW 'Dirty Dozen' British WWII military watch.

One of the finest ‘Dirty Dozen's’ we’ve laid eyes on. Commissioned by the MOD in 1944 for WWII military service, Record’s piece has become highly collectable. The deep pumpkin tropical patina that has grown with age across the hour plots is miraculous, truly a thing of beauty. It’s hard to do this vintage tone justice in photographs, but it leaves little to be desired. The rest of the dial doesn’t disappoint: crisp white tracking ring, sub-second register and broad arrow MOD markings.

The case too is in wonderful condition, having seen very light wear around case edges but remains otherwise remarkably preserved, with only the slightest bit of wear which is great for a watch of this age and that probably saw active service, albeit towards the end of WWII.

Original sword hands filled with a tropical, orange lume. Recently serviced for us by expert renowned watchmaker John Senior.
