No prizes for guessing the inspiration for this one. Once quite affordable prices have now gone through the roof, a Grana is currently on offer for over £22,000!   

Known collectively as “The Dirty Dozen”, these were issued to British forces between 1944 and 1945,  manufactured by Buren, Cyma, Eterna, Grana, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Lemania, Longines, IWC, Omega, Record, Timor, and Vertex.   It is estimated that these manufacturers delivered a total of 150,000 watches to The War Office (now the Ministry of Defence).

Although designated a “General Service” timepiece, this did not mean that each serviceman was issued with one, the watches were held in unit stores and only issued on an “as needed” basis for a particular task and returned to the stores when that task was completed.


This reintroduction is a completely new watch, built from scratch and incorporating improvements over the original. It is available only in 36mm diameter, now having a hi-dome sapphire crystal and drilled lugs with shoulderless springbars to allow a greater choice of straps to be fitted. Both versions have a soft iron dial and anti-magnetic cage, giving an anti-magnetic rating of 20,000 A/m (251 Oe).


Supplied in a 2- watch travelling case with 24 months guarantee.

All watches are guaranteed against defective workmanship for 24 months from
date of purchase and the guarantee for the first 12 months applies to the
