About this watch
A splendid example of the 1945 Timor Dirty Dozen W.W.W, which originates from the first line of non-civilian wristwatches commissioned by the British Military of Defence and worn by the British military.
Measuring at 36mm, it has a 15-jewel manual movement (produced in-house by Timor), is Cal. 6060 and has a really neat and well-balanced design, which features: a signature black dial, arabic numerals, luminous pencil batons and hour markers, a sub-seconds dial at six o’clock and a shatterproof crystal.
The W.W.W, engraved on the back of the case, stands for Watch, Wristlet, Waterproof and was used by the military to distinguish these watches from other military equipment. The broad arrow, on the dial, often seen on military dials, marks the watch as Crown property.
Fully serviced and regulated, this watch runs well and keeps excellent time.
The ‘Dirty Dozen’ was the name given to a group of 12 similarly-styled watches worn by British soldiers at the time of WWII, which were commissioned from 12 companies by the British Ministry of Defence. Each company delivered as many watches as their manufacturing would allow. Of a total of roughly 145,000 watches, an estimated 13,000 were manufactured by Timor.
