WWW Military IWC Mark X (The dirty Dozen)1944-48

This vintage IWC is one of the worlds most important military issue timepieces from one of the worlds most important manufacturers. This is a hand wound watch from WW II which was issued to troops in the early part of 1945. Only six thousand examples were made starting with case number 1,131,001. 

As one of the Dirty dozen military watches, this one is unique as instead of screw back, it  is a two part steel case with a snap on back, satin middle body and polished bezel which has fixed (spring) bar. The watch Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42.5 mm long x 10 mm thick.
