Spectacular Longines WWW Dirty-Dozen Watch

(Super-Rare Second Dozen MOD Dial)

 

Collector Condition | Fresh-To-Market | Rare

 

Once upon a time, there was a desire by collectors to put together the twelve British military watches that make up the so-called Dirty-Dozen. That is still the case, but for advanced collectors that is too simple. Then came the next ambition, to collect the Dirty-Dozen with factory dials, and a second set with the MOD dials. Suddenly the whole collecting theme became a lot harder. Surprisingly, it is extremely hard to compete a set with MOD dials, and the Longines counts as one of therarest of the dozen.

The Dirty Dozen Longines watch with satin stainless steel, turned case (47.0 mm x 37.0 mm excluding crown), and contract, screw stainless steel case-back. Typical MOD black dial with the Longines trade-name, and War Department arrow. The dial with 1-12 hour digits, 60-second scale with luminous hour-marks. Subsidiary seconds-dial at 18.00 hrs. 

To the reverse, case-back with markings, War Department  arrow, 'WWW F 6965,' serial number, and case number '3241'. The case-lug also with matching stamped  number '3241'. The inside to the case-back with arrow and serial number. The particularly high quality, 15-jewel  brass movement with mercuric gilt finish to the main bridges. The watch balance with screw-in weights. The Longines trade-name, and movement number positioned to the main Bridge.   

Condition report: Just very light use to the unpolished case. Plexi-glass with light use, clear and free from adverse scratching. Dial close to perfect and original. Hands perfect and with original luminous paint. Case-back generally clean and with just some minor scratch marks by the opening grooves. Movement Particularly clean and fresh. Movement functioning and recently serviced.

Condition status: Top Collection Grade Condition 

Note:This style of Longines Dirty Dozen watch is often [incorrectly] referred to as the Greenlander, since it was believed to be the timepiece used in the 1953 Greenland Expedition; the Rolex Tudor was the 'Expediton timepiece.' 

Dirty Dozen second-set rarity factor: 10/10
