A rare and interesting Omega RAF 1953 military watch. This 17 jewel manual wind movement watch has dust cover, black dial with white Arabic numerals and luminous dots and hands. The back case is marked 6645 101000 (for NATO issue), 6B/542, 3150/53, with the large RAF arrow to the top. The dial is also marked with the fat arrow above 6 and the encircled T below 12. This watch is mounted on a retrospective strap and may also have retrospective hands. The watch is in apparent good working order but has a crack to the glass and scratches to the lugs etc as expected with a watch of this age and character. Only 5900 of these timepieces were issued for pilots and officers, in a one year order of this exciting antimagnetic chronometer.
