Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a certificate mentioning the special Reconnaissance Regiment and stating that it is a limited edition of 167 pieces, instruction booklets, guarantee card, hangtags, a presentation box and the outer packaging.

The Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR) is a Special Forces Regiment of the British Armed Forces. The SRR was established in 2005 to meet a demand for a special reconnaissance capability and conducts a wide range of classified activities related to covert surveillance and reconnaissance. It is believed to contain only between 100 - 300 personnel.

This watch is one of 167, which were part of a special order supplied directly to the Regiment by Rolex. The certificate, issued by the Special Reconnaissance Regiment, states the serial number of the watch and its limited edition number "BA101" that is also engraved on the back of the watch. The document is further signed by both the recipient and his Regimental sergeant major (RSM).

The back of the present example was engraved with the cap badge of the Special Reconnaissance Regiment and the individual limited edition number.
