CWC Quartz Diver's Issued Wristwatch (025/83) in excellent overall condition.
This is a genuine watch that was actually issued during it's life to a member of the armed services (probably a Royal Navy Diver). It bears the stores reference 0552/6645-99 7573314 and the issue number 025/83 indicating that it was the 25th such watch issued in 1983.
The case of the watch has some very minor blemishes as is to be expected for an issued watch but nothing to detract and overall it is in very good condition still bearing it's original high polish with no visible corrosion. The dial and crystal are in virtually mint condition.
The bezel on this watch has the characteristic plastic insert with the numbers set below the surface of the plastic unlike the later version which has the numbers printed on the surface. I have not seen this style of bezel serration before on a CWC but this is a very early quartz and it may well be original to the watch. I have adjusted the price to reflect the fact that the bezel may not be original.
The watch measures approximately 40mm across it's diameter and 45mm including the crown. Thickness is 10mm. The watch takes a 20mm strap, has fixed bars and would normally be worn on a 'NATO' style strap.
This watch is priced at a premium over that of a new unissued watch to reflect it's more sought after issued status for collectors of military timepieces. These earlier versions of the RN Diver's watch are much less often seen for sale than the more common updated versions.
The watch is functioning very well although it has not been serviced during my ownership. A new battery will be fitted prior to despatch.
