ABOUT

THIS DO NOT MEAN IT IS NOT, BUT WOULD HAVE TO HAVE OTHER HISTORICAL FACTORS TO WARRANT BEING A WATCH MADE TO PROFIT OFF THE WAR BY LOOKING/ACTING/BEING LIKE A MILITARY WATCH.

THIS PROFIT FROM THE WAR EFFORT FACTOR OFTEN DETERMINED THE WATCH OFFERED. CLEARLY DURING WAR TIME MANUFACTURERS MADE TIME PIECE TO SELL TO THE GI.

IN GERMANY, A STANDARD ARMY ISSUED WATCH CARRIED THE  “DH” STAMPS.THE STANDARD MILITARY ISSUED USA AIR CORP WATCH CARRIED THE A-11 DESIGNATION.

YET  MILLIONS OF US & GERMAN TROOPS SERVED & MOST OF THEIR WATCHES WERE NON MILITARY ISSUE.  AN OFFICER MIGHT INVEST IN A EXPENSIVE 1943 GALLET; THE STANDARD US TROOPER MIGHT INVEST IN A LESS COSTLY WYLER.

WHAT EVER THEY INVESTED IN, IT WAS AN INVESTMENT IN  BENRUS, WALTHAM, ELGIN, DOXA, HELVETIA,  INVICTA, CROTON, LANGENDORF, SEIKOSHA, MINERVA, GENEVA, WYLER, LONGINES, ELCO, BOREL,LANCET, JUNGHANS, ORVIN OR ANY OF THE HUNDEDS OF BRANDS WHOM DESIGNED AND OFFERED TIME PIECES THAT WERE MADE TO LOOK LIKE AND ACT LIKE AND BE FOR MILITARY USE.

WWII MEANT WATCHES DESIGNED BY HUNDREDS OF COMPANIES CREATED FOR THE SOLDIERS OF MANY COUNTRIES. EACH MADE TO BE DURABLE AND AWESOME LOOKING. TWO TONE AND THREE TONE COLOR DIALS WITH REVOLUTIONARY SWEEP SECONDS CHAPTER RINGS, RAISED ILLUMINATION RADIUM DIALS, 24 HR TIME MARKERS. THUS THESE ARE MILITARY WATCHES WWII ERA.

DURING THE VIETNAM WAR,COMPANIES ABLE TO BRIBE / DONATE / CONVINCE THEIR WAY INTO THE U.S. PX SYSTEM MADE MILLIONS. WATCHES WERE BUILT TO BE AND LOOK LIKE MILITARY WATCHES. THE US GOVERNMENT ACTUALLY CREATED THE MARKET FOR WATCH COMPANIES.

THE PX SYSTEM AND THE R&R SYSTEM. THE MOVIE APOCALYPSE NOW FEATURED A SEIKO 6105 SEIKO DIVE ON MARTIN SHEEN’S, THE STAR CHARACTER, WRIST.

THE SEIKO WAS A MAJOR PX SELLER. SO WAS THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF. NO MILITARY ISSUED DESIGNATED NUMBERS BUT GI SALES BEAT THE STRAIGHT CIVILIAN SALES.

 TIMEFRAUD CONSIDERS THESE TO BE VIETNAM MILITARY WAR ERA: STORE OFFERED, PX OFFERED OR R&R OFFERED.

PLATOON DEMONSTRATED THE LEATHER CUFF AND ALSO THE  SEIKO ON THE WRIST OF THE STAR ACTOR CHARLIE SHEEN WHO IS THE SON OF MARTIN SHEEN.

WE HAVE JAMES BOND WEARING WATCHES AND OTHER STARS THAT WERE ACTUALLY CIVILIAN ISSUE THAT MADE THEIR WAY INTO THE MILITARY ACTION ORIENTATED FRONT.

THEN THERE WAS THE VIETNAM R&R SYSTEM. A ” REST AND RECUPERATION   LEAVE” SYSTEM ALLOWING ALL IN COUNTRY  MILITARY PERSONAL THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE ONE  5 TO SEVEN DAY LEAVE [INCLUDED TRAVEL TIME THUS 5 TO 7 DAYS DEPENDING ON DESTINATION]  WHICH BROUGHT THEM TO COUNTRIES AND PLACES LIKE HONG KONG, AUSTRALIA, HAWAII, PHILIPPINES, JAPAN  AND OTHER  ASIAN CITIES WHERE WATCHES WERE SOLD DIRECTLY TO THE SOLDIERS [ALSO MILITARY SUPPLIES LIKE SAWED OFF SHOT GUNS!].
