The Watch

.
Here we have a completely untouched and all Original CWC 'Fat Boy', it is even accompanied by its Original rare heat sealed Nato.

.

The 1980 to 1982 watches are often referred to as 'fatboy' due to the depth of case needed to accommodate the ESA 536.121 movement.

.

The quartz "G10"  was the first quartz watch supplied to the British military, with the name coming from the form G1033 that had to be filled in in order to be given one.

.

This represents a fantastic opportunity and investment, as Collectors preach Originality.
