A rare British-Issued WWII Grana ATP (Army Trade Pattern) watch, British Army military issue markings on the case back with ‘Broad Arrow’ in original condition and with a fantastic patina.
One of the elusive ‘ATP’ series, this Grana has quite literally been through the wars, but lacks the scars to show for it and following a full service is running perfectly.
A precursor to the famous ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches, produced for the British Armed Forces during World War II by 12 world-famous watch manufacturers , the ATP (Army Trade Pattern) series of watches was made available at the start of WWII via a Military of Defence contract with 16 Swiss suppliers in 1939.
Amazingly, in an effort to demonstrate neutrality, the Swiss supplied almost identical watches, this time with black dials, to the German military although the German versions have not reached the premium prices collectors are now prepared to pay for these pieces.
The 20 variants of these ATPs have become highly collectable and sought after due to the varying rarity of each model and ever so slight difference in appearances. Not only this, their dials have aged wonderfully into unique, organic vintage tones which vary from face to face.
This watch is supplied with a certificate of authenticity and 12 months warranty. As with all of our watches we are more than happy to consider a part exchange.
