The Watch
The CWC "W10" was initially manufactured for CWC by the Hamilton factory, and is identical to the preceding watches from Hamilton that had been issued from 1973 until 1975. CWC supplied the Armed forces with these Watches between the years 1976-1980, with this guy coming from the first year of issue.
A huge testament to the Quality of W10 was that it was used ubiquitously by every branch of the British armed forces, such was its popularity.
The way to tell which branch a vintage watch was commissioned for was to look at the back. W10 denotes the British Army issue, which this one is, 6BB means that the watch was issued to the Royal Air Force, 0555 Royal Marines and 0552 for the Royal Navy.
The Watch is in very nice order with a fully serviced Hacking ETA 2750 movement.
One for the serious Military Collection having come directly from the personal collection of John Senior.
