A genuine Omega military Airforce steel open-face pocket watch, made in 1945.

It is engraved military arrow G.S.T.P. and inscribed with the soldier’s number: F020045. The case is signed on the inside: "OMEGA, Fab. Suisse, Swiss Made" with the Omega logo and numbered: 1140.


The inscription on the back of the case G.S.T.P. with a military arrow stands for: “General Service Time Piece”.

This scarce example was supplied by the renowned maker Omega, whose name and trademark appear on the dial. Omega was first contracted by the British during the First World War, when the supplied motor vehicle clocks for army trucks. However, between 1939 and 1945 the British were supplied with huge quantities of Omega watches which totalled over 100.000 pieces. These represented over half the total number of timepieces procured by the British armed forces during the war. After the Allied victory Field Marshall Montgomery visited the Biel factory and personally thanked the staff at Omega for their work towards the war effort.
