    Is this CWC genuine?

    Your opinions are greatly appreciated, particularly with regard to the case back markings and battery hatch:









    Cheers.

    I've just found this thread which has settled me a little. Still interested in your thoughts though:

    There's looks to be nothing wrong with that David. If you check the caseback at 5 o'clock you should see a slight cutout on the joint to allow a blade to be inserted to remove it. Also there should be a small mark on the caseback where the crown is to allow it to be lined up with the battery hatch when refitting. The hatch looks spot on. As has been mentioned the contact plate/retainer on the top of the battery isn't usually present (at least not on the pre 2000 models) but I don't own a 2004 model so I'm not sure whether they are included on one that late.

    Thanks Duncan, the things you mention are present.

    Thanks for all comments - I'm now suitably assured.

    CWC + Hamilton issued

    Just picked up an issued 0552 CWC from the 1980's and
    an issued 1970's Hamilton G-10
    I am very partial to vintage British military watches
    Unfortunately they are hard to find in the US
    Anyone know where to find a Hamilton crystal for the above 1970's G 10?
