CWC G10 Fat Boy (1980)
This is a very nice example of the first generation of quartz watches supplied to the British Military. It was supplied by The Cabot Watch Company (CWC), which was established in 1972 specifically to supply watches to the British military. The G10 General Service wristwatch was intended to be a general purpose timepiece and was widely issued to all branches of the British Military.
This first generation of G10 is characterised by a thicker case compared with later generations, hence the nickname "Fat boy". The case back has the Nato stores number for this type of watch engraved, along with the individual identifier for this specific watch (6436) and the issue year (80, i.e. 1980).

These watches are a good size and robustly made in a two piece, satin finished stainless steel case. The movement has been serviced and is working excellently and keeping very good time, as one would expect from a quartz mechanism. The case has been cleaned, but as with all out vintage watches we have left it unpolished. The crystal has been polished and the watch has been fitted with a Nato one-piece nylon strap. The watch comes with our standard 12 month guarantee.
Case diameter: 35mm
Case material: stainless steel
