The British military watches are highly collectable but many relate to the war periods as the need for war died down and as military spending was reduced in the 70’s in Britain, the quantity of watches produced reduced as a consequence. This is where we see the introduction of the ‘Fab Four’ watches. In the early 70’s, the Ministry of Defence’s DEF-STAN (Defence Standardization) was altered in order to produce more commercially viable pieces for the military.
The result of this was the creation of watches over a decade by four brands – Hamilton, CWC, Newmark and Precista. Despite the change in specs, these watches followed the specifications of its predecessor, the Lemania Mono-pusher as it remained house in the 39mm asymmetric stainless-steel case and consisted of a black dial with luminous hands and markers. The change was that instead of one chronograph pusher, you now had two. As such, these watches were now powered by the workhorse cam lever Valjoux 7733.
The Hamilton is perhaps one of the most recognisable out of the four and a brand with the most heritage. They had a much longer stretch producing watches for the military and were known to be one of the best and most prolific producers.
This watch sits beautifully on the wrist and will be supplied with a new service and 12 months warranty / certificate of authenticity. Viewing is available in central London and we can ship worldwide
