For sale is a nice fully working example of one of the famous “Dirty Dozen” pieces from CYMA. It has the larger 38mm, all stainless steel, case with all the correct WWW military and later civilian serial numbers. It has the original and rarer Radium dial and hands that has gone a beautiful tropical brown colour. The crystal is the original and has the typical stress type cracks in it that follow with Radium dials.

The watch was fully serviced by Andrew Leftley (a member of the British Horological Society and acknowledged military watch expert) in 2015 with documentation to verify it, and it should be noted that as part of the service he touched up two of the luminous plots and a little part of the hands to stabilise them.

It comes complete with a set of British WW2 medals that are for the North African and Italian campaigns as well as general WW2 service medals. These medals are not named, as is typical with British WW2 medals, so their original owner cannot be verified but these have been kept together as this is how the watch originally came to light and is how they were sold to me.

The watch is in full working condition (also comes with a spare new mainspring from John Senior) and is presented on a custom made leather open ended strap together with a matching leather Zulu strap (not shown).

I’m located in Hong Kong so will ship internationally using EMS Speedpost. PayPal from verified accounts will be accepted and the watch will ship to the verified address only. Price is US$1650 (or HK$13000) including shipping.
