CYMA – WW2, British military watch with large, stainless steel case (37x47mm – excluding crown)
This on eis a very special piece – I have seen a good amount of WW2 Cyma’s – but never a „tropical“ one . This is an extra dimension!
Dial with the Cyma trademark and War Department arrow. The dial with 1-12 hour digits, and 60-second scale showing luminous hour marks. Subsidiary seconds dial at 18.00hrs.
Specially designed and custom made for the British Army. W.W.W. stands for Watch, Wrist, Waterproof and was the descriptive code used by the British Army to identify it as a piece of equipment. There were 12 Swiss manufacturers of the W.W.W.’s and as such, the collection is commonly referred to by collectors and dealers alike as “The Dirty Dozen”.
The watch is in good condition, case and crystal shows some use due to it’s use . The original factory dial is in complete original condition. The sword hands and crown are all correct to the original specification of the watch. Screwback case with broad arrow and full military markings.
Cyma 234 calibre movement is currently running well . The watch comes with two straps: a handmade vintage leather NATO and a nylon strap.
