Description

Made for the Swedish armed forces, this steel Swiss watch most likely dates from the 1970s.

The case back has the arms of the Swedish Royal Family, three crowns in a triangular formation.

The case back also bears the engravings 0980, which seems to be in issue number and also 10511, which would appear to be a model number.

The solid steel case is of two-piece construction with a screwed back, removable spring bars and a unitary case top which means there is no separate bezel. The domed glass is acrylic and in remarkably good condition. The back of the case shows parallel lines caused by the action of a nylon G10 (NATO) band, these can easily be polished out but if the watch is to continue to be worn on a G10 strap, it seems pointless.

The movement is the Swiss ETA 2750 with 17 jewels and Incabloc shock protection.

The dial is gloss black dial has full Arabic numerals with heavy tritium paint and white pencil hands, which also have tritium infill.

The whole of the watch is in exceptionally good condition for a used military watch.

The case is 95% whilst the dial and the movement are both 95+%.

The watch measures 40mm Diam, 48mm lug to lug and is 14mm high; it takes a 20mm strap and a new G10 (NATO) strap has been fitted.
