Hi, I've just inherited what I think is a WWW1 military pocket watch which is stamped with a three legged arrow head mark and the issue number 32129F. I'd appreciate any guidance on how I could trace the history of the watch. Who it was originally issued to and when would be interesting and may help trace it's history and how it has ended up in my hands.

many thanks
Steve

Yes, especially the movement and inside of the case back. Large and in-focus is always a plus,

BTW...WWW1....what does that third "W" stand for?

One name comes to mind - - - literustyfan. He's on this forum. He should be able to point you in the right direction.

Given that was his one and only post, I tend to agree. I'll probably never learn what that 3rd. W stood for! :lol::001_tt2::lol:

A military watch with the arrow "pheon" and stamped "W.W.W." on the case back means "Watch, Wristlet, Waterproof." In British military parlance.

I shall remember that...thank you!

Of all the watch & clock topics, I'm probably weakest when it comes to pocket watches.
