As you may have seen over the last several weeks, we have had a number of wonderful CWC Royal Navy Divers in, well, this one is no exception.
In 1983, CWC went to a new dial and bezel design, in 1985/86 they changed the font on the acrylic inserts but some 85's have been seen to have the earlier 83 insert, like this one. Only 350 of these were produced by CWC in 1985.
As you can see that watch has lived quite a kinetic life, the watch has had some water ingress at some point in time based on the dial, like most used RND's. These were tool watches after all. The hands have some spotting on them and a feint crack on one hand but this is only visible under a high powered loupe.
From what we can see there isn't another original issued 85 RN for sale online, however, considering only 350 were made and no doubt some have been lost over time, we aren't at all surprised.
The watch has been resealed by our watchmaker and passed its pressure test, ready for its next adventure.
