CWC - 46 years of Military issue watches


Item code: 73189

CWC RN 1983 SPEC DIVERS WATCH MK.1 (mineral glass, 60-click bezel).
We are sold out of this model but a full reissue will be available later in the year.

The CWC 1983 Quartz Royal Navy Divers watch was the first quartz divers watch issued to RN divers, which replaced the 1980/81 Automatic Divers watch. The '83 spec continued until late 80s / early 90s, when the bezel was changed to the solid metal bezel with etched markings. The original 80s RN divers watches are now becoming very rare and collectable if you can find one. The new CWC 1983 Royal Navy is made to the same spec with polished case, luminous bezel as the original, with the luminous being super luminova as Tritium is now not available in paint form.


CWC watches have been Issued to RN divers for decades and many later issued watches are currently still in service.
