This remarkable and substantial watch is completely new/old stock and dates to circa 1977/78. The watch was manufactured by the Croton watch company and is identical to their iconic 120M divers chronograph, which, with the exception of the dial markings, is absolutely identical.
For many military watch collectors the famed Dirty Dozen need no introduction, In brief the M. D in the 1940s needed to standardize its issued timepieces and so the Wrist Watch Waterproof (WWW) was born and 12 Swiss watch manufacturers were chosen by the MOD to develop appropriate timepieces.Vertex were, at that time, one of the most highly respected. It is estimated that Vertex delivered less than 15000 to the MOD towards the end of the second world war and this piece will have survived through many other conflicts since the 1940s. What makes this piece exceptional is that it still retains its original Radium lume pots, I have seen very few to be this intact. This a very special collectors find.
