WWW Record Military Watch - Calibre 022K - 'Dirty Dozen' c.1940

£0.00GBP
vws0729

A Record World War II Military issued watch, part of the infamous ‘Dirty Dozen’ collection. Superbly preserved example with an impressively clean dial, crisp case edges with little wear and a New-Old stock crown replaced at service by John Senior (expert military watchmaker).

Dial reads beautifully, with crisp markings and almost no sign of wear whatsoever to the 'rail track' hour ring or numerals. The lume plots and hand inserts have aged to take on a deep, creamy overtone – all of which still glow brightly under UV light (although nowhere near as long as originally). This is an impressive testament to the watch’s condition and construction; the watch is over 70 years old now.

A very nice original example of a Record Dirty Dozen. These were made in a production run of only 25,000 – a piece of history and rarity to put on the wrist!
