BRITISH MILITARY
WWII
W.W.W.
SPECIFICATIONS

 

 

 

DURING WWII, THE BRITISH WAR DEPARTMENT ORDERED MILITARY WATCHES DESIGNATED W.W.W FOR WATCH WRIST WATERPROOF. THESE W.W.W. WATCHES WERE TO HAVE BLACK RADIUM DIALS, 15 JEWEL MOVEMENTS, SUB SECONDS- PERSPEX SHATTER RESISTANT GLASS, STRONG CASES WITH EXTRA WATER PROOFING AND LARGE CROWNS. 12 MANUFACTURERS [BUREN, CYMA, ETERNA, GRANA, IWC , JLC, LEMANINA, LONGINES, OMEGA, RECORD, TIMOR  and VERTEX]   WERE SELECTED TO FILL THE ORDERS. EACH WOULD PRODUCE WATCHES SIMILAR TO EACH OTHER. ALL WOULD HAVE SCREW DOWN CASE BACKS EXCEPT IWC, WHO UTILIZED A SNAP CASE BACK WITH A LEAD WASHER SEAL.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

THE US GOVERNMENT NEVER PRODUCED, ORDERED OR
SPEC MILITARY WATCHES WITH W.W.W.

NOT THE US NAVY. NOT THE USAF

FROM THE A-7, A-8, 1-11, A-15 AND A-17 TO THE MIL-W-3818A
MIL-W-46374 i, MIL-W-46374 F, MIL-PRF-46374 G AND GG-W-113

THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN DESIGNATIONS ON THE CASE BACK AND NONE HAVE W.W.W.

SO WHAT ARE WE SAYING HERE? A VENDER SOLD A W.W.W. US NAVY WATCH AFTER A DAYS LONG AUCTION FOR AROUND 256.00. SO THE BUYER GOT RIPPED

*********************************************************************************

 

The History of the  A-7 development was beforeWW2.
 
The U.S. Army Air Corp requested a Navigation Watch designated as the A-7.
Called the AVIGATION  WATCH as in AVIATION and NAVIGATION
it was built utilizing a Gallet Chronograph Movement

The AVIGATION utilized a CHRONOGRAPH movement due to the fact the CENTER SWEEPING SECONDS HAND
WITH HACKING CAPABILITY HAD NOT BEEN DESIGNED NOR PRODUCED YET

The CHRONOGRAPH AVIGATION would be produced in limited production simply because it was too expensive

A new design was required. One that would be smaller, have a greater ability to resist water and shock
and have a hacking ability for the military to equip the hundreds of flyes for WWII.

It was designated the A-11 and produced by Bulova Hamilton and Elgin.
