Description

By 1962, the exectutive arm of Her Majesty's Government had been disposing of decommissioned wartime materiel for nearly 20 years. During that time, RAF navigators had adopted the various new Mark 11 watches, while time-served WWII pilots' watches like our Omega "Mark X", made in 1944, were being disposed of by specialist suprlus agencies like United Technical Services on London's Tottenham Court Road. The original bill of sale from 1962, at £12, 18 shillings and sixpence, suggests that even then these highly-accurate and reliable "wristlet" watches were well appreciated. The dial of this example is as perfect as you will ever see, as are the skinny hands, case and movement. One to enjoy wearing whilst on the hunt for remaining eleven of the "Dirty Dozen"! 2-year Watch Club warranty.
