IT WAS A BIG PAY DAY FOR MANY COMPANIES AND COUNTIES/CITIES WHO LOBBIED THE MILITARY. YOU WERE REQUIRED TO RENT CLOTHING, RENT A HOTEL ROOM OR APARTMENT IN ADVANCE. DEPENDING ON DESTINATION, YOU HAD CERTAIN OPPORTUNITIES. YOU COULD BUY MILITARY GEAR AND WEAPONS, SUCH AS SAWED OFF SHOTGUNS IN BANGKOK AND SYDNEY.  THE BEST SHOPPING WAS IN BANGKOK AND HONG KONG, YOU COULD BUY TAPE DECKS, CAMERAS, AND WATCHES INCLUDING SEIKO AND ROLEX, SOMETIMES PRICES WERE AS LOW AS 1/3 OF U.S. .

THUS EACH DESTINATION WAS GEARED FOR THE MASSES OF GRUNTS AND THEIR DOLLARS. DURING THE WAR, LITERALLY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WERE AT STAKES.  MANY WATCH COMPANIES SOON REALIZED THAT, BESIDES THE BEER AND WOMAN, THE GI WOULD INVEST IN A WATCH.  SOMETHING THAT THEY COULD BUY AND REMEMBER THE EXPERIENCE.

SEIKO. BENRUS, ZODIAC, BULOVA. WESTCLOX, ROLEX AND TIMEX LOBBIED THE JEWELERS AND THE MULTITUDES OF GREEDY SHOP OWNERS TO CARRY THEIR BRANDS.

IN FACT WESTCLOX ACTUALLY BUILT A BETTER WESTCLOX MILITARY WATCH WITH HONG KONG CASES THEN THE PLASTIC 7 JEWEL MODELS THEY WERE REQUIRED TO BUILD FOR THE U.S. GOVERNMENT.

BENRUS, WALTHAM, ELGIN, DOXA, HELVETIA,  INVICTA, CROTON, LANGENDORF, SEIKOSHA, MINERVA, GENEVA, WYLER, LONGINES, ELCO, BOREL,LANCET, JUNGHANS, ORVIN OR ANY OF THE HUNDREDS OF BRANDS WHOM DESIGNED AND OFFERED TIME PIECES DID SO WITH THE INTENT TO OFFER A MILITARY WATCH DURING MILITARY ENGAGED TIMES.

THUS WE CONSIDER A WATCH MADE FOR TROOPS DURING ANY WAR TIME BUT SOLD FROM A STORE A MILITARY WATCH.

AND WE CONSIDER WATCHES ORDERED BY GOVERNMENTS FOR MILITARY USE, BE IT A-11 A-8 OR GSTP, AS “MILITARY ISSUED WATCHES”.

IN ADDITION, TIMERS AND STOP WATCHES CREATED FOR MILITARY USE, AND THOSE ISSUED TO CIVILIANS,  UNIVERSITIES, LABS, AND FACTORIES ARE OFTEN THE SAME AS MILITARY. EACH OF THESE TIMERS/POCKET WATCHES, HAND CHRONOGRAPHS, MAY HAVE “MILITARY” DESIGNATION OR “WAR ERA” DESIGNATION. IT DEPENDS ON THE TIME PERIOD AND ANY FURTHER “PROOF” .

TIMEFRAUD IS MAINLY INTERESTED IN WRIST WATCHES, CHRONO’S, TIMERS. STOP WATCHES, POCKET WATCHES  AND MOVEMENTS THAT ARE OFFERED AS A BRAND AND ARE CLEARLY NOT WHAT THE SELLER CLAIM THEM TO BE.
