These watches were issued to the British Military by Omega and built to the Military of Defence’s DEF-3 specifications of the time.
The ’53 Omega was manufactured with a stainless steel brushed case with fixed lug bars, ‘thin arrow’ luminous hands with luminous dial markings, a 17 jewel, 30 mm, 283 calibre movement which featured shock-protection and non-magnetic components.
The military markings on the caseback are as follows:-
- Government Mark in the form of a ‘Broad Arrow’
- NATO Stock Number – as was often the case, the NSN was truncated to simply 6645 101000
- RAF Stores Reference code: 6B/542
- Serial number of the watch followed by a slash and the year of issue by the RAF: ####/53
This watch is in really beautiful condition and benefits from a recent movement service.
