    Interesting... I always assumed it was a called a W10 and the name referenced the stamp on the back?

    I believe the W10 on the back indicates it was issued to (or by) the Army. Mine has 0552 which I've read is Navy.

    W10 is army, 0552 /0555 are RN/RM up to '95, subsequently 0552 covers both, 6B /6BB are RAF. 66 Is scientific instrument, 45 is a subset of 66 that covers timekeeping. 99 is the NATO identifier for the UK. The last bit of the number is the URN for the watch.
    The line below, 3399/97 is the 3399th watch ordered in the 1997 contract year.
    Sometimes you also get a unit serial number scratched or stamped into the back as the watches as they were "starred items" that had to be accounted for by the CQMS/RQMS.
    troops signed them in or out of the stores using form G1098, hence a G10 watch.
    You had form G1098 for stuff held centrally in unit stores & form 1157 for personal issue kit like clothing etc.

    Error, post 95 it is 0555 that covers both the RN & RM. Also forgot to mention the crowsfoot or broad arrow that has marked government property since Elizabeth's time (the first one).
