DESCRIPTION            Here we have a very rare CWC 81/ auto.. From looking closely at the watch, i believe all the parts are genuine  CWC .  Correct thin case, correct “brevet”0977.165-81 inside case back and NATO numbers to the outside, without issue stamps. The movement is an ETA 2772, correct bakelite click bezel and correct hands.  This is the interesting part, “the dial”. The 80/81 dials were non circled CWC as these circled CWC dials came on the 83 quartz watches with “quartz” in writing under. This dial is in between 81-83, what i would call a 83 onward quartz dial but with out the word quartz on the dial. I’ve  studied the dial  under the lupe and it looks totally original and the quartz wording has not been removed. Could this be an “82” watch using up parts of the 81 autos before full production on the 83 models ?.  I sadly believe, we will never know.   LAST PICTURE  SHOWING MY 81- THIS 82 WATCH- AND MY QUARTZ 83
