This remarkable piece from the 1930's has survived in fantastic original condition .The military markings HS 8 confirm that this piece was issued to the Fleet air arm Pilots .These pieces differed to the other watches issued to the mainstream RAF as these use a nickle plated brass case with a solid stainless steel case back .the fleet air arm found that brass cases resisted corrosion better than cheaper later versions another feature of these earlier cases was the fixed lugs
The Omega 30 T 2 caliber movement was serviced last year by John Senior one of the UK 's leading military watch experts and so performs exactly as it should
The 33 mm case wears much bigger due to the very slim case .
A great vintage pilots watch from the 2nd world war That is increasing in value all the time
