CWC: The Watch That Replaced The MilSub

CWC: The Watch That Replaced The MilSub

by Jason Heaton "Among collectors of vintage military watches, there are a handful of grails worth chasing: one of the rare Dirty Dozen WWW watches, a Royal Air Force–issued IWC Mark XI, or a Heuer Bundeswehr flyback chronograph, amongst a few others. Of course, at the top of the heap sits the legendary MilSub, the Rolex Submariner that was issued to British Royal Navy divers in the 1960s and '70s. These sought-after watches regularly sell for six-figure sums, with a minefield of intimidating nuances and variations through which to wade."

I really like this article. It got me searching and spending. I have just picked up a CWC Gulf War W10. It is a 1991 Unissued British Armed Forces watch. Straight from the MOD. So your article has enabled me to picked up a rare unworn 26 year old rear watch. Thank you. You can see a picture of the watch here.
