CWC quartz watch

Recommended Posts

Hello I have found a watch in my late husband's belongings, any info greatly received. Under the CWC is T in circle. On the back 6B/6645-99 and under that 6052627 and under that the letter C?

It sounds like a 'G10' watch - potentially military issue although available to purchase for civilians too... I think the 'C' signifies the latter.

The 'T' signifies Tritium luminous material for the 'glow in the dark' bits on the dial and hands. If original it won't glow anymore! CWC stopped using Tritium a while ago and it has a limited lifetime.

Does it look like this (apart from the 'T')? https://www.cwcwatch.com/products/cwc-gs2000-issue-watch-w-date

Thank you and yes it does look like that. There is no strap.

No problem at all. If you want to find a strap for it, you can search for an "18mm NATO" on eBay (etc.); as much choice as you could hope for, and the work of 30 seconds to swap.

Hope this helps a little

 

6645 - military wristwatch

99 - NATO code for UK

The number  6052627 would indicate a GS 2000 model, which were available with the "T".

What colour is the dial on yours ?

With Wrenny, I empathise with your loss.

I have just looked at Ziggy's link and I must admit that I am gobsmacked by the prices being asked for those CWC "reissue" watches - ludicrous in my opinion, and I don't approve of inaccurately designating the type of lume used either.

Thank you all, the dial.is.black but I made an error, it's not a T in circle but an L

L just indicates it has a different type of luminous paint on the hands and dots marking the hours, it would date the watch as being made after 2002

Jumping on the thread from a sideline,  interesting to hear that thank you, I was under the misguided  impression that the L denoted it was a lithium battery/movement, now I know thank you.
