Probably the most accurate and faithfully reproduced 1970's British Military W10 available. If there was a contract today for this watch we would have no hesitation submitting this to MOD for tender.

The original had a solid one piece case with a split crown stem so that access was through the front, Today we produce this watch with a two piece case so the case back is removed  making it much easier to service. 

A fitting tribute to the first watch Mr. Ray Mellor made for the M.O.D. 

1970s reissue mechanical hand-wound watch which was originally issued to
British Army W10, Royal Navy 0552 & RAF 6BB.
Classic military tonneau case design. Luminous hands and markers, acrylic glass. Clear to read, functional and reliable. A classic military timepiece that will provide years of service. Mechanical Swiss movement. Swiss parts, Swiss-made.

Engraving is available for this watch, however we cannot accept returns of any items that have been personalised.
