Precista G10 RAF issue (1984)

£ 495
The quartz "G10"  was the first quartz watch supplied to the British military, with the name coming from the form G1033 that had to be filled in in order to be given one.  It is by far the most common issued watch, which makes it a great first military watch.  The G10 watches were supplied to the MoD between 1980 and 2006 and to all of the branches of the British military are represented, although the RAF only ordered watches in 1983.

This particular watch is one of the RAF order from 1983, and was issued in 1984 as shown on the case back engraving (/84); the rest of the engraving is decoded as follows: 6BB identifies watches issued to the RAF, 6645-99-5415317

6645 is the code for a “Time Measuring Instrument” and 99 is the country identifier for the UK. 5415317 is the NATO stores number for a quartz wristwatch conforming to the appropriate specification and finally 30028 is the issue number of this particular watch.

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
