RAF observer's pocket watch

Code: C27370

SOLD

Stores reference 6E/50.  Manufactured by Cyma with a Swiss made 15-jewel movement.  White metal case approximately 5cm diameter.  White dial with Arabic numerals and black painted brass hands plus subsidiary seconds dial.  Snap-backed case with rather worn War Department broad arrow markings, '6E/50', and serial number 'A6728'.  The dial is excellent, the case has normal wear and tear with more on the back, the crystal is good but the winder bow (loop) is a little loose.  The movement is in good working order when test run for 24 hour periods.  Pocket watches like these were preferred by navigators who found it easier to place the watch on their maps and charts whilst working.  Stock code C27370.
