    Have MWC watches ever been issued ?
    I've seen one with RAF markings but Im a bit suspicious.

    Not that I'm aware of and if your thinking of the RAF 91 currently on eb then that's not a military issue watch, just one made to look like it is. The last of that style of MOD GS watch was supplied by CWC in 1980.

    This question cropped up elsewhere some time ago and I believe the answer is no.They attempt to promote their watches as used by security and military services but are vague about who.

    Haha, lucky for you, your reputation could have been tarnished for life.

    Thumbs up

    MWC are just copying CWC and their watches are never been issued.

    Do not buy that as they are fooling many people with their military provenance...

    No question they are a poor imitation of the real thing, but they are fun to "mod" nonetheless.



    If it doesn't work out it's no great loss either financially or historically.

    They produce military unit commissioned watches for around 100.

    They definitely insinuate on their website that they are supplied to the military and police but I'm almost certain they aren't issued, (especially in the UK) so any manufacturer could claim the same I suppose.
