Grana WWW Dirty Dozen First Series Watch


British military WWW watch for sale manufactured by Grana, Switzerland.  The W.W.W. watch with nickle-silver over brass case,  silvered dial with 1-12 hour digits, and subsidiary seconds at 18.00hrs. The reverse with typical stainless steel screw-style case-back bearing the broad, War Department arrow, and designation, 'W.W.W. M2347.'  Good quality K.F.320 movement with 15 jewels, nicely finished with Geneva Stripes. The watch on its original (1940s / 1950s) period brown leather strap.

Condition report: Case showing light wear. The silvered dial generally clean with a fantastic patina, and with luminous hour markers. Slight missing lume to the hour hand. The plexi-glass clear and free from scratches or other damage. Case-back with some adverse scratches. Movement clean and functioning. The brown leather strap with general wear, but remaining supple.

Condition status: Collector Grade Condition

Note: Grana were responsible for supplying service wristwatchse to the British Army during WW2.  Grana A.T.P., and W.W.W watches are particularly desirable on account of their extreme rarity. This example is a part of a small consignment of Grana contract watches which were designated 'W.W.W specification' with white,  A.T.P dials. These may have been the first consignment of W.W.W. watches before the introduction of black dials.

Additional notes:  A comparative example  is illustrated in the notable publication British Military Timepieces by Knirim, [page 553]. The serial number for the watch illustrated  in Knirim's book ['M 2119'] is particularly close to the serial number of this Dirty Dozen Grana watch.

Dirty Dozen rarity factor: 10/10
