WWW Eterna Military 'Dirty Dozen' Watch - c.1945 WW2 Issue - Calibre 520H


Rare c.1945 Eterna WWW 'Dirty Dozen' British WWII military watch.

Second rarest of the ‘dirty dozen’ collection to the Grana, only 5,000 of these were ever produced under tight military specifications from the British Ministry of Defence.

Excellent condition WWII-issued British military watch. This Eterna’s case is in a particularly impressive state, with an almost complete lack of visible wear, exceptionally sharp and crisp: not what you’d expect from a watch made in 1944 and possibly issued to a soldier! The MOD dial is also very crisp, with a subtle matt fade across it which adds a lovely vintage feel, accentuated by creamy lume inserts to the hands. 

Case back is as stunningly preserved as the midcase, as are lug and case edges which are as sharp as ever. Case back engraved MOD broad arrow P854, 31091xx.

The watch runs in excellent working order, having recently been serviced by expert renowned military watchmaker John Senior.
