ARE ALL “MILITARY WATCHES” GOV ISSUED?
HAVE LONG TAUGHT THAT WATCH COMPANIES NEVER EVER GAVE UP MAKING AND MARKETING MILITARY WATCHES DIRECTLY TO SOLDIERS. FROM THE TROOPERS & OFFICERS IN THE CIVIL WAR TO THE MARINES ON THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI TO THE MEN WHO FOUGHT THE SPANISH AMERICAN WAR FROM THE PHILIPPINES TO CUBA TO WWI, WWII, KOREA, AND VIETNAM, TO IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, AND EVEN THE SPECIAL FORCES OF GREEN BERET AND SEAL TEAMS 1 -6, AND NOW THOSE BATTLING A FEROCIOUS WAR ON TERROR ACROSS THE GLOBE
NOTE KITCHENER [FAMOUS WWI BRITISH PERSONA] MILITARY STRAPS
Made By Elgin Sold Direct And To Military
THE “PERSHING” DIALED WATCHES KEPT THE BOYS ON THE MIL WATCH FORUMS HOT. “NO “PERSHING WATCH EVER EXISTED” OR ” NO PERSHING DIAL EXISTED” “JUST A WATCH” WELL, LOOK ABOVE. US MILITARY PERSHING’S & PRIVATE STORE SOLD PERSHING’S & SPECIAL EDITION PERSHING”S – LOOK AT POCKET 17 MADE TO HONOR THE GREAT GENERAL’S TOP BRASS IN GOLD. YUP, THE GEN. WAS THE CREATOR OF THE FIRST ID INFANTRY DIVISION IN WWI, TO BECOME THE FAMOUS BIG RED ONE IN WWII , HE BUILT THE FIRST MODERN DIVISION, HEADED UP THE US VICTORY IN EUROPE. LIKE THE BRITISH KITCHENER “WATCH”, THIS WAS THE “PERSHING DIAL” ,WHEN MOUNTED IT BECAME A PERSHING WATCH. PERIOD. END OF STORY .
WWI WAS TRULY LARGE IN DIRECTLY SUPPLYING OFFICERS NOT TOO MAY ENLISTED COULD AFFORD WATCHES. RADIUM GAINED FAME. AND THE SNAP TOP. BURBERRY GAINED SUPER FAME. AND THE NAME GAINED LUXURY STATUS AFTER THE WAR NOTE THAT THE OFFICERS KIT HAD NUMBER ONE AS A LUMINOUS WATCH WITH BREAKABLE GLASS. I NEVER RECEIVED AN ANSWER NOR FOUND ONE RESEARCHING WHY BREAKABLE GLASS ? THOUGH THAT WOULD LESSEN SHOCK TO MOVEMENT
ALL THESE ADDS WERE DURING WWII AND WERE DIRECT GIANT FULL PAGE NEWS PAPER ADDS IN PAPERS THAT CIRCULATED ON AND OFF ARMY AIR FORCE MARINE NAVY AND COAST GUARD BASES, AS WELL AS OVER SEAS [WERE PERMITTED]
Gallet Flight Officer time zone chronograph. Commissioned by Senator Harry S. Truman in 1939 for pilots of the United States Army Air Forces.DIRECTLY SOLD NOT ISSUED The Flight Officer (a.k.a. Flying Officer) had a rotating 12 hour bezel and the names of 48 major world cities printed on the periphery of the dial (face). These features made it possible to calculate changes in the time as an aviator flew across lines of longitude. Besides being the first time zone calculating wristwatch, the Flight Officer was one of the world’s first wrist chronographs to be housed in a water resistant case. Truman wore a Gallet Flight Officer during his terms as 33rd president
GRUEN WWI AND HERE SHE IS AGAIN IN WWII THIS TIME SHE REAPED MORE CASH THEN BULOVA ELGIN OR WALTHAM DID COMBINED WITH THE MILITARY ISSUED A-11 PILOTS HACKING WRIST WATCH. THAT IS CORRECT, THEY, GRUEN, SOLD MORE OF THE ABOVE WATCHES TO ENLISTED MEN AND WOMAN THEN THE SALES OF THE A-11 TO THE US ARMY AIR FORCE. SO, TRY AND FIND ONE OF THE ABOVE GRUEN, THEN HAVE IT RESTORED
8 SPECIAL DESIGN MILITARY WATCHES FOR 8 SEPARATE SERVICES. DIRECTLY SOLD. ANY ONE OF THESE MODELS ARE WORTH BETWEEN 500.00 TO 900.00 IN RESTORED CONDITION.
I WOULD LIKE TO PLACE FULL PAGE SIZE. NOT ALL WATCHES THE SAME TYPE. LOWER THREE, TWO MEN, 1 FEMALE HAVE SWEEP SECONDS, NOT SUB SECONDS. NOTE THE SECOND FROM LEFT BOTTOM? DOWNLOAD THE FREE “WAR INSPIRED WATCHES PDF” BELOW . YOU WILL NOTE THE INNER CHAPTER RINGS AND 24 HOUR MILITARY TIME. ALSO THAT MOST ARE TOP LINE LUXURY “MILITARY” WATCHES. THAT IS, NON ISSUED WATCHES. BEAUTIFUL! INCLUDING WWII OMEGA!.
ABOVE ARE TWO OF THE MOST FAMOUS WWII ROLEX WATCHES . THE ROLEX WAS TO GAIN FAME AFTER PILOTS, FED UP WITH THE INFERIOR WATCHES SUPPLIED BY THE BRITISH MILITARY OPTED TO INVEST THEIR OWN MONEY INTO THE SPEED KING.
ROLEX WOULD SELL THEIR WATCHES DIRECT TO BRITISH PILOTS. AND, WHEN A PILOT WAS CAPTURED AND MADE A PRISONER OF WAR, THEIR WATCHES WERE CONFISCATED.
Hans Wilsdorf, FOUNDER OF ROLEX, RECEIVED SEVERAL LETTERS FROM DOWNED AND CAPTURED FLYERS NOTIFYING THE FOUNDER OF ROLEX OF THESE HAPPENINGS.
Hans,THROUGH ROLEX, ISSUED AN EDICT, ANY PILOT OR CREW MEMBER CAPTURED AND HELD PRISONER, COULD WRITE ROLEX AND THEY WOULD RECEIVE A ROLEX WATCH FREELY WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY ANYTHING UNTIL THEY WERE FREED.
3000 ROLEX WATCHES WERE SHIPPED FROM 1942/43 TO THE END OF THE WAR. IT WAS SAID EVERY ONE OF THEM WERE PAID FOR. THE MOST POPULAR MODEL WAS #1 THE SPEED KING. #2 WAS THE MOST EXPENSIVE OF THE ROLEX PILOT’S LINE, THE Rolex 3525 Oyster chronograph.
THE TWO YOU SEE HERE ARE TWO OF THE ACTUAL FAMOUS MODELS FROM THE ACTUAL “GREAT ESCAPE”, A TRUE ESCAPE WHERE 76 ALLIED PRISONERS OF WAR ESCAPED AND THE GESTAPO SHOT 50 OF THEM. IT WAS MADE FAMOUS BY THE MOVIE OF THE SAME NAME STARRING STEVE McQueen .
[IMAGINE, THIS BABY WAS 210.00 US DOLLARS]

NOTE THE UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY CLASS RING, THE PROMINENT OAK LEAF ON THE COLLAR OF THE MILITARY UNIFORM SHIRT OF THE NAVEL OFFICER AS HE, “AT DUTY”, PEERS THROUGH WHAT IS OBVIOUS A SUBMARINE PERISCOPE; PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED ON HIS WRIST IS A ROLEX SUBMARINER.THIS IS CLEARLY AN EXAMPLE OF THE OF THE WELL DESIGNED AND NAVAL APPROVED ADVERTISING THAT STATED IN NO OTHER TERMS THE FACT THAT ROLEX SUPPLIED ONLY THE FINEST MILITARY APPROVED AND CAPABLE TIME PIECES.AFTER ALL, THESE WERE NUCLEAR SUBS THEY WERE WRITING ABOUT AND THE COMMANDERS WHO MASTERED AND OPERATED THEM.
CLEARLY THEY WERE THE MOST POWERFUL, SEXY, ADVANCED SUBJECTS AND TECHNOLOGIES OF MILITARY WARFARE AND POWER.
AGAIN, DIRECT MARKETING TO OFFICERS AND THE ENLISTED ALIKE…
AS I HAVE ARGUED OVER AND OVER. THE RIGHT PROPS AND THE THE RIGHT BRASS BECAUSE THE BRASS ALSO WORE THESE AND BETTER…
