c1945 WW2 Record British Army Officers Watch with Military Issue Numbers W.W.W. L15338 and Broadarrow on the Case-Back and 15 Jewel Movement Cal. 022 K A Superb Example
This is one of the very best examples of this British Army Military wristwatch from WW2 made by Record (Longines) that we have ever seen. Original dial with British military Broadarrow on dial and WWW (standing for “Wrist-Watch Waterproof”) and Issue Numbers on case-back. Original large military winding crown. One of the so-called “Dirty Dozen” twelve models of wristwatches officially issued to the British Army during WW2. In the 1940s the British Ministry of Defence produced a standard specification for watches to be issued to the armed forces and these were made by Buren, Cyma, Eterna, Grana, Jaeger Le Coultre, Lemania, Longines, IWC, Omega, Record, Timor and Vertex.This is one of the nicest examples of the Record military wristwatch you will see and it has matching numbers on case-back and lug showing that the case-back is original to the rest of the case (often these case-backs were randomly changed during army servicing of these watches). In summary, one of the so-called “Dirty Dozen” twelve watches issued to the British army during WW2, this Record is easily one of the best original examples that we have seen of this collectable military watch.
