Description

This Watch

The WWW British issue wristwatches are perhaps the most desired and collectible watches among all those issued to the British Army. This is perhaps because they were the first to be specially designed and custom made for the British Army.

‘WWW’ is said to stand for Watch, Wrist, Waterproof and was the descriptive code used by the British Army to identify it as a piece of equipment issued by the government.

 

Extra Points 

There were 12 Swiss manufacturers of the WWW contracted to the forces, and as such, the collection is commonly referred to by collectors and dealers alike as “The Dirty Dozen”.
