For sale is this superb Grana WWW British Army Military Wristwatch c.1945.
As many of you may know these watches began being manufactured and issued to the British Army in early 1945. There were 12 Swiss manufacturers of the WWW watches and as such, the collection is commonly referred to by collectors and dealers alike as “The Dirty Dozen”.
Only around 1,500 Grana WWW watches were made for the British Army during WW2 and as such they are incredibly rare. Consequently, finding a Grana WWW is considered to be the “holy grail” by many military watch collectors who aspire to own all twelve of the Dirty Dozen.
The watch for sale is one of the best original examples you could ever hope to find and is in excellent overall condition.
The original dial has aged beautifully and is in lovely condition with no obvious flaws or blemishes.
The sword hands, seconds hand and crown are all correct to the original specification of the watch.
The casing is in excellent condition with very few noticeable marks or scratches.
The KF320 calibre movement is in very good condition and is currently running well and keeping excellent time and includes its original dust cover.
The watch size is 35mm (excl. crown).
Please see photos below.
The watch is listed for sale on our website priced at £9,950 which includes a newly fitted NATO strap and quality hand-made leather watch pouch. This price includes free shipping for members of Chronotrader!
All our items are guaranteed to be completely genuine and authentic. We offer a fourteen day "no quibble" money back guarantee on all the items we sell together with a full six-month warranty on all our wristwatches and clocks. This means that you can buy from us with complete confidence.
