A rare beautiful British Military Issued WWII ATP (Army Trade Pattern) stainless steel watch, British Army military issue markings on the case back with'Broad Arrow'. Keeping accurate time and running superbly. Tested for 1 week without any issues. One of the elusive'ATP' series, this watch has quite literally been through the wars. A precursor to the famous'Dirty Dozen' watches, produced for the British Armed Forces during World War II by 12 world-famous watch manufacturers (hence the nickname), the ATP (Army Trade Pattern) series of watches was made available at the start of WWII via a Military of Defence contract with 17 Swiss suppliers in 1939. Amazingly, in an effort to demonstrate neutrality, the Swiss supplied almost identical watches, this time with black dials, to the German military. Just over 133,000 ATP watches were produced during World War II, and while the watches were meant to have been destroyed as fighting drew to a close, many were decommissioned and some continued in service. The 31mm solid stainless steel case is in lovely condition for a watch of this age and has the scalloped edge on the case back, distinctive to this watch. The watch dial and blue skeleton hour and minute hands along with the subsidiary hand are in excellent condition. It also has a smaller than usual subsidiary seconds dial which makes the watch easily recognizable from other ATP's. The dial is pretty well unmarked and in beautiful condition. The dial on this watch really deserves some praise a stunning character to the ATP without affecting its legibility in the slightest. Thankfully, the skeleton hands are in superb condition and show a distinct contrast between the blue steel edges (still incredibly sharp and reflective). Original Movement: Clean and bright unsigned 16 Jewels keeping accurate time and in excellent condition. Numbered 57 and retains original ring. Original Caseback cover inner: Marked Stainless Steel Swiss Made. Caseback cover outer: Signed ATP with broad arrow marking. Has surface scratches commensurate with age and wear.

Case: Solid stainless steel 31mm without crown overall good condition. Has surface scratches all over associated with stainless steel commensurate with age and wear. There are no deep scratches or dents that I can see. The lugs are in excellent condition.

Crystal: Acrylic in excellent condition. Strap: A new aftermarket good quality NATO strap and stainless steel buckle recently fitted. Lug height (lug to lug): 37mm. Please observe pics carefully as they form part of the description.
