    G'Day Gary,

    Just had a look at that on TZ-UK. Looks like a nice example. Not sure but think its with the original radium lume, unless I'm mistaken.

    Here is a great link with regards to all www watches http://www.sfu.ca/~mmh/BritishX.htm

    If you're interested in this one, Gary, I think Mike (River Rat) is an expert on these?

    Regards

    Jon'.

    Thanks Jon', I'm not interested in buying this particular example, just trying to expand my rather narrow Omegacentric knowledge base.

    How about a beginners guide for www / issued virgins like myself? EZ's link is very good but I'm sure there's a lot more to learn.

    Cheers,

    Gary

    I am still learning on the WWW watches.Last year I bought my first it was a CYMA and I should of did my home work.I have seen post on these so I know what they look like on the out side.I got it at a NAWCC mart so you think you can trust other member's right.Well I pop the back cover off it had a CYMA movement so I thought it was OK.Well if I remember right it had a 17 jewel movement.All WWW had 15 jewel movements.I found all this out at the MWR forum I learned a lot from that post.The dial and case some one did a lot of work to make a $400.00 fake it even fooled some of the member's there.So when you buy these learn what movement that went in every model there Were twelve .Omega,Buren,Eterna,Grana,IWC,Record,Timor,Vertex, Jaeger LaCultre,CYMA,Longines.I will look for that post on the Fake over at MWR and post it here.I was able to get my money back but I will not be buying from that seller agian.Here is the post from MWR on the fake CYMA.
