The Watch
.
Here we have a Original CWC 'Fat Boy'.

.

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.
