Product Description

A WWII RAF Air Ministry stopwatch in good working condition dated 1936.

The stopwatch is clearly marked on the back cover with the King’s crown over AM 6B/117 and on the inside are the markings G & S Co Ltd which stand for Goldsmith & Silversmith Co Ltd, a rare marking to find on any WW2 timepiece. The white face of the pocket watch is in very good condition with no visible crazing or fractures.

The dial is divided into 60 seconds, with a smaller dial for minutes elapsed. The reference number 1430/36 is hand written in the middle of the face. The movement of the stopwatch is in good clean condition with a serial number of 26566 and has no visible maker’s mark. The serial number on the inside of the back plate is 217183. The nickel silver plated case shows very little age related wear, probably as a result of the chronometer being contained in a leatherette covered wooden case, which is lined in dark blue velvet and turquoise silk. These stopwatches were supplied for a variety of roles, but most importantly for use by Navigators.

Size watch: 7 x 5 x 1.7 cm (2 ¾ x 2 x 5/8 inches)
Size case: 9 x 11.5 x 4 cm (3 ½ x 4 ½ x 1 ½ inches)
Weight: 183 g
