|Hours, Minutes, Sub-seconds
This Grana W.W.W. is from circa 1945 and retains all of its military case-back engravings. The dial features the British military broad arrow, as well a Arabic numerals, a painted minute track and applied Radium index markers. The luminescent material on the hands has aged to a dark orange/brown patina as have the index markers.
Housed in a 36mm stainless steel case with fixed lugs, it has antimagnetic hands, with an antimagnetic cage protecting the manual-winding Cal. KF320 movement. The W.W.W. watches were renowned for their timekeeping accuracy, regulated to a chronometer level as this was a fundamental specification required by the British Armed Forces.
The collectibility of this timepiece is largely underpinned by its exceptional rarity. With military watches very much in demand today, due to their casual and utilitarian feel, this particular piece certainly fits the bill, especially with its wearable 36mm case, with both dial and case in exceptional condition.
Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
