About this watch

Arguably the most sought after military collectors watch and said by many to be the most accurate and expensive watch ordered by the British ministry of defense ever this time piece has received so much praise in its 60 year existence and I think its fantastic to see it being worn with so much pride as it is today.

Classically understated and incredibly accurate you can see why these have such a following and at 36 mm are so easily worn in the modern arena

This particular watch was issued in 1952 and the dial ,case back  and movement are all correctly marked .The Caliber 89 movement is protected by  its original anti magnetic cases and the entire piece really is in unbelievable condition .
