During WWII, the British Ministry of Defense issued specifications for a military watch to be issued to British soldiers. The specifications were referred to as "WWW" (Watch Wristlet Waterproof), and twelve manufacturers (the so-called "Dirty Dozen") responded to this request. The Cyma WWW is prized by military watch collectors primarily because the case was larger than the others, and it was made of stainless steel, providing for greater durability. Here is an original Cyma WWW with full markings, soft iron dust cover, and original dial with radium hands and markers. CYMA (WWW British Military) - Excellent 37mm signed stainless steel screwback case with broad arrow and full military markings, signed 15 jewel calibre 234 movement (#3815xx), excellent signed original broad arrow dial with full arabic numerals and radium luminous markers, silver and luminous pencil hands with original radium, subsidiary seconds at 6:00, large original crown, excellent domed acrylic crystal, Nato strap. The original crown "clicks" when you wind it. The 15 jewel calibre 234 movement runs fine and keeps good time. The dial is original in excellent condition, with original radium intact on dial and hands. Highly collectible WWII British military watch.
