About this watch

One of an estimated 15,000 produced and I know I have said this before but judge for yourselves from these untouched images for its 70 years of age, this watch is fantastic.

For many military watch collectors, the famed Dirty Dozen need no introduction, In brief the M.O.D in the 1940’s needed to standardize its issued timepieces and so the Wrist Watch Waterproof (WWW) was born and 12 Swiss watch manufacturers were chosen by the MOD to develop appropriate timepieces. Vertex were, at that time, one of the most highly respected. It is estimated that Vertex delivered less than 15000 to the MOD towards the end of the second world war and this piece will have survived through many other conflicts since the 1940’s

This piece is in stock and ready for worldwide shipping.
