Omega Royal Air Force Raf 1953 6b/542 Issue Fat Arrow Watch '53 For Sale
I am parting with my small collection of military antiques and collectables. Please check my other sales for WW2 A-2 flight jackets, Vietnam war era clothing, webbing and patches, UK special forces items, RAF watches and other interesting bits and pieces.
This is one of the all time military watch classics, issued by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to Royal Air Force (RAF) personnel in 1953. These were issued for one year only (1953) and limited to approximately 5,900, in this case numbered a low serial 1293/53.
Caliber 283, case reference 2777-1SC. This example retains the original antimagnetic dust cover and spacer ring. Most examples have lost this ring. 17 jewel signed manual wind movement in the correct range (13056224), near mint stainless steel signed screw back case (37mm diameter, reference CK2777-1SC, 1953 Royal Airforce markings), plain MOD crown, fixed lug bars. Perfect signed black dial with broad arrow (MoD original), luminous markers and numerals, sweep seconds, NATO style strap. This watch was serviced nine months ago and is in perfect working order keeping excellent time +/- 1 sec/day. I have owned several of these watches and this is the best.
Below are photos that should allow collectors to identify various positive design and construction techniques. Feel free to ask any questions. Good luck with your offer!
