Other Camel & CT watches

Collection
 

These watches have made it into my collection for different reasons. It coud be they are pioneers of the CT watches, Later watches (after 136) or Rare Camel watches.

There is no order on this page.

This watch:
The "Date Zone 03" is another prototype watch that didn't make it into the Camel Trophy range. They must have only been made for a very short time and it looks like they were only sold in Italy (and maybe England) . The watch is fitted with a very good Swiss ETA movement. The original strap is solid leather.

These watches came from: Italy, 2008 - July 2009 - July 2009

Case and back plate :  All Stainless Steel bronze bezel
Battery:  


This watch:
This watch was sold in the UK under the name "Off Road". The Camel Logo is moulded into the case. The crown has no protection which is very unusual, so the watch must be before 1991/2

Personal notes: This watch is a very early model that used a very inexpensive movement. This surprises me as the watch case, dial, hands and strap are of good quality!


This watch came from: Italy, June 2009

Mondaine number given (after 1993):  N/A
Date of manifacture: Ca. 1985/88
Functions:  Hours,Mins., Secs.Date date and week day plus moon sweep. Rotating bezel  
Movement make & model:    Akita Ltd. Japan
Number of jewels: 0

Water resistant:    States on dial 200 m & on the back 100 m (I would not try it at 1m!)
Case and back plate :  Alloy & Stainless Steel  back plate with bronze bezel
Battery:  


This watch:
Very light watch, low quality, Thick glass, Works well.  This watch must be one of the reasons WBI thought that a watch range would be good for business. As the watch is called a Safari Trophy I would guess that the watch was made around 1986/7 when the Camel trophy was held in Madagascar. They come up quite oftern for sale but there are alot of fake Safari's where the small dials do not work.

This watch came from: Germany, July 2009

Watches ID     A1072    
Mondaine number given (after 1993):  N/A
Date of manifacture: 1983
Functions:  Hours,Mins., Secs.
Movement make & model:    Harley 3973
Number of jewels: 5  
Movement Type:  Quartz Unajusted
Water resistant:    Waterproof ?
Battery:  371


This watch:
This must be the rarest of any Camel/Camel Trophy watches! I have only ever seen one other (and It may have been this one!) I read somewhere that a wrist watch was presented as a prise on one of the CT's, If it was then this must have been it! I can not find any information about O&P design (Makers). The Harley movement is gold plated and works well. The watch is only 7.60mm thick. The case and back plate are heavy! but the strap is light. I even had to pay inport tax!
Update 10-2011: I have been informed that the watch was indeed presented as a prize on the Camel Trophy 1983. My informant is quite sure the watch was limited to only 50 examples! He knows of one other so that makes 3 from 50 that we know still exsist.

This watch came from: Switzerland, 2011
