Another rare piece has recently arrived – A United Arab Emirates dial bi-metal Datejust military issued watch!
This special watch was presented to Commodore Geoffry Trist C.B.E while serving as Defence Director at the Ministry of Defence from 1978-1980.
The watch comes with the rare UAE crest Datejust dial and is in superb condition looking like it has probably very rarely been worn – it still has the protective sticker on the caseback!
A full collector set that includes rare UAE presentation leather box with UAE crests both inside and outside, original punched guarantee papers and translation booklet, original numbered hang tags and all presentation stickers.
If you are looking for something with a bit of class, great military provenance, superb collector quality and that is not going to break the bank then this is it!
