Engraved On The Movement G C T. With hack function working! Included is the Rare Metal Aircraft watch case with glass view lens as pictured!!!! WWII Air Mans Pocket Watch History. During World War II, Hamilton & Elgin produced a variety of time pieces to support the war effort. In fact, all of Hamilton’s & Elgin’s production was dedicated to defense purposes. However, they did still produce some wrist watches using excess movements produced in the 1920′s. One of the war-related watches was a pocket watch with a central sweep second hand. The movement was based on the 21 jewel, 16 size 992B for Hamilton & B. Raymond movement for Elgin. However, an extra jewel was added to support the second hand pinion, so the movement got 22 jewels. Known as a “Navigator’s Watch” as it was used by aviators to aid in navigation by the US Navy during the war. You’ll often see these in a case or a box that was intended to isolate it and protect it from shocks or accidental damage. If you look closely at the dial, you’ll see that it’s a 24 hour dial so it takes a full day for the hour hand to make a full rotation. 12:00 noon on a 24 hour dial looks like 6:00 on a 12-hour dial. The minute hand still makes it around the dial in one hour, so the ratio of the minute hand to the hour hand is modified using a different minute wheel and hour wheel ratio. Another interesting aspect to the Air Mans watch it “hacks” or stops when you pull out the crown to set the time. This allows you to set a very precise time… The old, “synchronize your watches” phrase comes to mind.

Illinois Washington Army & Navy 19 Jewel 16s Rare Hunting Case Pocket Watch Mvt

16 size 19 jewel hunting case lever-set Washington Watch Co. “Army & Navy” pocket watch movement/dial/hands. A rare and attractive high grade Getty model movement, based on a close study of Washington Watch Co. Production I believe the total production of the 19 jewel 16 size hunting case Army & Navy was approximately 350 made. Watch is fronted by its correct double-sunk enamel Gothic numeral dial. Serial number is 1845044. Started running when fully wound but balance motion is very weak with low amplitude and some escapement noise and is weaker in some positions than others, and I think very likely this movement hasn’t seen a servicing in many years. Beautiful movement cosmetically with excellent color and luster. Dial is beautiful with just a very faint outer chapter hairline at 23 minutes and two minuscule nicks to the rim of the center hole.
