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. M2302.'  Good quality K.F.320 movement with 15 jewels, nicely finished with Geneva Stripes.

Condition report: Case showing some general wear. The dial generally clean, and with luminous hour markers. The plexi-glass with significant scratch at the 10.00 position. Case-back generally clean but some scratches evident. Movement not functioning. Broken balance.

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.

Provenance: The watch originally the property of Special Constable Charles Nixon.
