[VAULT] 1983 Reissue Quartz Divers Watch Ex-Display, Serial /21

Condition: Excellent
Ex-display model, unworn. Like new except for a very small pin-sized indent in the left side of the case, almost imperceptible in normal use. See photos.

A few available all with the same mark on the case. Serial numbers end with /21. One watch will be picked at random from those available.


In 1983, CWC produced the first quartz divers' watch for the Royal Navy and this reissue has been made to the same specifications, with SuperLuminova (as Tritium is no longer available). The T on the dial remains for historical correctness.

The quartz version was specified by the M.O.D. to include a polished case, sword minute hand, Tritium dial and luminous bezel. This continued throughout the 1980s. In the early 90s, the hands and bezel changed.

We take great pride in producing timepieces worn by British forces for fifty years.

Superb 1983 Re-issue RN Divers watch

I purchased the 1983 re-issue RN divers watch from ‘The Vault’ and it arrived quickly and exactly as described. It is superbly crafted. I served in the RN as a diver in 1983, so this also has personal value and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.

Fantastic watch

As the title says, this is a fantastic watch. I’m very happy with it, solid build, great looks and will form part of my CWC collection. Great work CWC
