N a Brushed Stainless Steel Finish. Supplied with 1940's Pattern Canvas Strap.
This MWC automatic self-winding classic 1940's/1950's pattern military watch with a small subsidiary dial second hand is based on the typical designs used by the British forces from the 1940s through to the 1950s, it retains the acrylic crystal as used on the original watches although the original hand-winding mechanical movement is upgraded to a self-winding automatic which can also be manually wound if required. The watch offers the benefit of retaining the original outward appearance whilst having the advantage of a few discreet updates to improve its suitability for use on a day to day basis. More formally, these watches were known as W. W's, a code established by the British Army to distinguish these from other military equipment and it simply stood for Watch. It doesnt get any more utilitarian than that!This watch has a heavy stainless-steel satin finish case made from Military Grade 316L stainless steel, subsidiary dial second hand, hacking function, black dial, and luminous markings. The face is sterile/unbranded and features the military Pheon logo, the watch also has a historically accurate canvas strap as used in the 1940's and 50's. For general interest the final image shows a library photograph of the original 12 watches. & Crown: 316L Stainless Steel. Crystal: Plexiglas/Acrylic similar to that of the original.
