Steampunk Rare Antique Working Wwi Black Dial British Military Trench Watch Cuff For Sale

Steampunk Rare Antique Working Wwi Black Dial British Military Trench Watch Cuff

FREE SHIPPING JUST FOR YOU!!!

Up for sale is a truly unique piece of history! It is an antique WORKING WWI black dial Royal Artillery pocket watch repurposed into a unisex metal cuff watch. The watch dates to approximately 1914. It measures 46mm in diameter not including the crown. This wonderful watch has a rare black dial with complete luminous paint on all numbers and hands (any markings in the pictures are from dust on the camera lens, NOT the watch dial. It is one of the cleanest dials I have seen on a watch this age). It has a 17 jewel movement that is running very strongly and keeping accurate time (within a couple minutes over a 24 hour period). This is a daily wind pocket watch. Each morning you wind the watch fully at the crown and it will run for 24-30 hours. You also pull the crown to set the time. The chrome case is in impeccable condition for its age. The back case is engraved with the Government Arrow (signifying British military issue), serial number 81274C, and an RA representing Royal Artillery. From the date and markings on this watch, it could have been used by the BEF (British Expeditionary Force), which was the force sent to the Western Front in France during World War I.

I have used a stainless steel pocket watch adapter to attach this pocket watch to a vintage wide metal band. This enables the buyer to wear it as a cuff or to remove it and carry as a pocket watch. You can also adjust the adapter to fit just about any other pocket watch in your collection to wear as a cuff. An antique brass pocket watch drum and antique brass clock nut are riveted to the band for accents. The metal cuff is flexible enough to fit most wrist sizes. I have also attached a safety chain that can easily be adjusted to the wearerʻs tastes (can also be worn without the chain).

It is safe to say this watch has seen a great deal of action during a tumultuous time in the worldʻs history. It epitomizes the saying "takes a licking and keeps on ticking." Donʻt miss your opportunity to add this rare gem to your watch collection!

Check out my other sales. I combine shipping! Thanks for looking! Happy offerding!!!
