The Grana watch is one of the ‘Dirty Dozen’ wristwatches made by 12 Swiss manufacturers for an order from the British Ministry of Defence during the tail-end of the Second World War for issue to army personnel. The acronym WWW to the case back stood for ‘Watch, Wrist, Waterproof’. Twelve different brands were commissioned to make the watches in c.1945: Buren, Cyma, Eterna, Grana, International Watch Co, Jaeger-Le-Coultre, Lemania, Longines, Omega, Record, Timor and Vertex. The Grana is considered the Holy Grail of the Dirty Dozen with perhaps as few as 1500 produced.
