Cabot Watch Company Mellor-72 W10 handwound mechanical.
Read the Hodinkee article by Jason Heaton here.
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.
What a beauty this lil'handwind timepiece is! It's as close to finding that untouched NOS as you can get (without having to fork out for a service before wear)! This watch is just lovely to look, wind up and wear. Out of box it was giving me 0 to +1 sec/day. Outstanding. This watch just oozes old school Mil-Cred and I love it. Tonne of willpower needed to stop me from indulging on more CWC watches!
I love my Mellor and the RAF strap. Great value, great product.
Received the watch quick and in perfect condition.
Wearing it now for 2 weeks still with the stickers on it. I love it and hate it at the same time. It was smaller then my expectations and would have bought a different CWC watch from their website. Will buy a CWC again.
Not sure what I will do with the Mellor 72. But be sure, the watch itself is really really nice, just not on my wrist.
