    CWC GS2000 6B were they really issued to the MOD/RAF?

    Have collected four or five of these (and later sold on) at one time or another. However I've not seen one that appears to have been actually issued/supplied to the MOD/RAF.

    CWC state they supplied a small number around 2000 but I've only seen watches with just a C on the case back from this period instead of the expected S/N plus date. A little later still this changed to a C followed by a number, then from 2008 a serial number with year like you would expect on a military issued watch but these are too late to be issued going by CWC's statement and appear to have been sold by Silvermans.

    So has anyone ever seen/owned a GS2000 with real MOD/RAF provenance and if so do they have a S/N and year and if so what year?


    Thanks,

    Ed

    I have one with the 6BB on the back (dunno what the year is as I can't find it currently).

    It has no C on the back.

    Hello Ed

    I found it earlier today, the military info' off the back of it is -

    6B/6645-99
    6052827
    2259/08

    & it shows a Broad arrow.

    I hope that's of interest.

    Cheers Dave,

    although going by CWC's info 2008 is beyond the time they claim to have supplied the MOD?


    Anyway much appreciate your efforts to find it.

    No problem.

    I was thinking about this one. I bought it off the original owner in about 2009, he'd bought it new from CWC & it came in the usual tin etc.

    However like I say, it has no C on the back. Maybe it was oversupply for the military that got sold on to the civilian market perhaps?

    Cheers

    Dave
