Of the twelve brands, the Cyma WWW is one of most popular for several reasons. It is housed in a solid stainless steel case, measuring a respectable 38mm wide not including the large crown. Many of the other manufacturers used chrome plated cases which have survived to varying degrees, making the steel case of the Cyma easier to find in nice condition. The 38mm case is also the largest of the dozen, making it a bit easier to wear today.
Despite all these desired features, the Cyma is one of the more affordable of the twelve. Many of the other Dirty Dozen are relatively rare and expensive, but the Cyma is one of the more common to be found, making it a prime choice for a burgeoning mil-watch collector.
The stainless steel case is 38mm wide by almost 45mm long, and it features 18mm lugs. The original factory finish had the case largely brushed, with a wide, beveled polished bezel. The crystal is acrylic, with a nice mellow dome to it. These crystals are extremely difficult to source, so watch out for bad or ill-fitting crystals.
The steel crown is a healthy 6.6mm wide, making it easy to grip and wind. The movement in these is the Cyma caliber 234, a 15-jewel manual wind movement. Oddly, this movement does not have a shock protected balance. Closing the movement in is a soft-iron dust cover, which also helps with anti-magnetic protection.
The lugs have fixed bars (meaning bars are soldered onto the case). With fixed bars, you’re most basic option with regard to straps are mil-straps, but there are also open-ended straps designed for fixed lugs.
