    Help please!? Cyma Navigator from Ď55?

    Hi Guys,

    Im new to this forum and have been recommended by the dutch watch forum to ask my question here.
    So here goes a small introduction:

    Iíve been interested in British Military watches for a few months now and came across a nice watch online. Itís supposed to be a Cyma Navigator if i look at the caseback saying: 6B\346. And its supposed to be from 1955... Too my knowlegde watches from 55 didnít look this modern. See picture below:






    For the last few days if been doing some research and couldn't find any information regarding this watch. In my opinion itís a fake or at least a watch put together from different watches.

    So I hope you guys can tell me more about this watch. Or have some information regarding

    You did the right thing to ask. Excellent advice from size11s.

    If you are at the beginning, maybe start with a CWC G10 quartz watch from the 80s/90s/00s. Popular, wearable military watches with less risk.

    Never be afraid to ask before buying.

    Thanks for your advice Billy!
    I will check the link you send.

    This Cyma really looks like its been put together from differenr from watches. The strange thing is that it does seem too have a Cyma caliber... It looks like a Case from CWC/Hamilton navigator with a Cyma Dail and caliber. See picture below.

    Im wondering what you guys think.





    Last month I bought my first BMW a G10 from 85 :) A very nice medium fatboy which I really enjoy wearing.
    I was looking too add a much older piece to to my collection but it seems this Cyma watch isnít the watch Im looking for.

    Good choice - CWC G10

    Hereís a thread with interesting information on each year of production.

    https://www.mwrforum.net/forums/show...Cwc+production

    If you are looking for something older, and more expensive, look out for a Smiths W10 or Hamilton 6B from the 1960s (both real beauties), Hamilton or CWC tonneau cased watch from the 1970s (currently popular, but Iím not a fan), or something like a Cyma or Record WWW from 1945. If no luck, have a look at Timefactorsí current re-edition of the Smiths W10.

    The Smiths military in black dial is now sold out at TimeFactors. I would also suggest the CWC Mellor-72 mechanical, unfortunately it is sold out for now over at their web site.
