Three fat boys: A triptych of British Army-issued CWC G10 military watches


The Cabot Watch Company is arguably the best-known maker of British military watches. It was founded in 1972 and produced watches for a number of different applications suited to the varying demands of the different branches of the British armed services. The most ubiquitous of these is the G10, a general issue service watch produced in large numbers from 1980 until the present day. CWC estimate that about 200,000 of these watches were produced from 1980 until 2008 and were used by the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Royal Marines.

The G10 was the first quartz watch issued to the British Armed forces and through its 28 year life as an issued watch, the thickness of its case tracked the bulk of the movements housed within. The earliest watches were fitted with the ESA 536.121, whose thickness warranted a mid-case of suitably generous girth.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
