From CWC Addict:-
The SBS diver is possibly the quintessential CWC watch; whilst most other CWC watches and clocks have antecedents in other models, or have been made or supplied by other brands, only CWC has ever produced the black day-date dive watch for the British military. For this reason, as well as for the link to the British Special Forces, issued versions of this watch are highly sought-after by collectors.
The watch was originally designed to the specifications of the Special Boat Service (SBS) in 1987; it has been suggested that special forces operatives wanted a non-reflective black metal finish for night time operations – possibly inspired by Royal Marines based in Hong Kong who had their issued RN dive watches black-coated locally – and that the day-date function was because they spent considerable amounts of time on mission and found it helpful to keep track of the days. The NSN 7995443 is specific to this watch.
