This superb vintage WW2 British Military issue RAF broad arrow wristwatch is built to take the rigors of military service while clearly displaying the time at a moments glance.  With a massive 36mm diameter case this timepiece has a hard to miss presence on the wrist.  The crystal design is unique in that a flared edge fits into the case from the back while the movement is removed, then screwed into place by an inner ring before the watch movement is replaced, hence giving more water-protection and strength.  This watch shows beautiful wear giving it that unmistakable vintage military worn feel.

Style: Military

Circa: 1940's

Case: Huge military style case with chromium plated bezel and solid stainless steel screw back.  Measures 36mm in diameter excluding the original crown.  Stamped on the back with the correct broad arrow marks "W.W.W. L29889" with serial number, and again the same on the inside.  Overall some minor wear, typical of a military issued timepiece.

Dial: Original factory printed dial signed Record, with the broad arrow mark.  Large white numbers and small seconds in white have faded slightly, but the luminous is very bright, possibly re-applied at some point.  Original stainless steel hands are also in good shape with matching luminous.

Movement:  Large Record Watch Co. caliber 022 K is in excellent cosmetic condition and has just been fully serviced by our watchmaker, so keeping great time.  Signed Record, Swiss Made, 15 Jewels.
