WWW Cyma Military Watch - Calibre 234 - 'Dirty Dozen' - P177xx 227xx - c.1940


A stunning example of a highly collectable and valuable military watch which was issued to the British Armed Forces during the Second World War. One of only 20,000 ever produced, this watch stands out from an already small crowd based on its exceptional state. The condition of this watch stands testament to this quality, remaining in great shape to this day.

Another fantastic handpicked example of a ‘Dirty Dozen’ collectable watch, in exceptional condition, the hands, dial and case are original, and all are in great condition. The dial has a great slightly faded vintage patina to it. The lume plots and hands look to have been repainted, historically, but have added a deep caramel tone which looks superb. We hope you’ll agree that this watch speaks for itself; the dial and case are something to behold, especially considering its age (approaching 80 years old!)

The stainless steel lugs and case embed a stunningly preserved dial bearing Cyma's self-styled logo, one of 12 manufacturers to provide watches to the MoD as part of war efforts. The collection that has arisen has consequently been coined 'The Dirty Dozen', and we hope you'll agree that this stands out as a highlight of any watch fanatic's military watch collection.
