WW2 British Army 'Commando' Service Watch . Early War style.


WW2 British Army 'Commando' Service Watch . Early War style.

These brand new reproduction British Army Service wristwatches are based on an early WW2 model.

Service watches were commonly made for the British Army by Swiss watch manufacturers. We are pleased to offer this faithful copy of the early style WW2 watch used by the British Army from 1939 to about 1944.

Each watch has a black dial which is lined around the edge with luminous markings. The main hour and minute hands are also luminous so can easily be read in low light conditions. Beneath the main hands is a smaller dial with a single hand which is used to record seconds. The dial is encased in a silver coloured stainless steel watch housing. The special 'Pumpkin' style winder crown is typical of watches of this era.

The reverse of the watch case is stamped WWW (which means Watch Wrist Waterproof- although by modern standards the watch is water resistant to 3 ATM) together with a pattern number.

The watch case measures 37mm in diameter. The total width including the crown is 42mm. The total height including the lugs is 42mm. It measures 10mm in thickness including the lens, 7mm not including the lens. It is also the same weight as the original watch.

The PU leather strap has a matt black textured finish with a traditional silver coloured metal buckle. It is held in place with spring bars so it can easily be replaced if desired and has a maximum wrist size of 20.5 cm

The watches are all battery powered with a Quartz movement with a small dial on the side to change the time if required and are supplied in a smart presentation box complete with sculpted recess to safely secure the watch.

These reproduction Army Service watches would make a great addition to your impression or to use as an everyday watch
