Paul Wyler presented his first 16 and 19-line precision movements to the public in 1927. The particularity of these was the Incaflex balance wheel, which was legendary at the time.

The Wyler Incaflex balance wheel is protected along its diameter by two curved, elastic arms, which absorb any shocks to the balance wheel. In addition to producing his own caliber’s, Wyler also modified movements of other large-scale producers and sold these to other watch companies.

In some cases, the basic caliber was changed so much that the movements should actually be considered as Wyler caliber’s.

1937 WYLER INTRODUCED THE WATER PROOF/RESISTANT watch that was not fitted with the conventional soft gaskets. The crystal was pressed in between the edge of the case and a pressed or screwed bezel, the gap between the winding shaft and the watch case was sealed hydraulically by fitting the winding shaft and bushing together, in the same material, to 1/500mm

IMG_2265.jpg (121744 bytes)

NOTE HIGH CRYSTAL WALL ONE PIECE CASE

NOTE LACK OF NUMBERS IN THIS ONE PIECE CASE

DENISE FOND THIS ONE BY ACCIDENT. SHE SAYS LOOK AT THIS NICE OLD WYLER BEING SOLD IN A LOT OF 101ST VIETNAM AND WWII 11TH AIRBORNE ITEMS. SHE SAYS, “, IT LOOKS MILITARY”SHOULD I BID?” I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT NO ONE WENT FOR THIS BEAUTY. THIS IS ONE OF ONLY A FEW THAT I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT,  W/O A DOUBT, WERE A TROOPERS WRIST WATCH. I SERVICED IT AND  DECIDED NOT TO NICKEL PLATE THE BEZEL. JUST LEAVE IT AS IT WAS MADE.  I DID ADD AN ORIGINAL NEW OLD STOCK SIGNED “W” CRYSTAL AND THEN I PLACED A WWII  REPRODUCTION US GOV ISSUE CLOTH STRAP AS SEEN ON THE MINI SERIES THE PACIFIC. THIS WATCH HAD A THICK WIDE WYLER SOLID BRASS CRYSTAL RETENTION RING AND LARGE MILITARY STYLE UNSIGNED TWO PART STEM AND CROWN.


WITH WWII BREAKING OUT, THOUGH THERE WERE MANY WYLER DESIGNS AVAILABLE,  ONLY A HAND FULL WERE ACTUALLY DESIGNED FOR MILITARY USE
AND SOLD DIRECT IN GERMANY, ITALY, ENGLAND AND THE USA. BY 1943 TWO STYLES OF CASES  WERE AVAILABLE  DUE TO MATERIAL AVAILABILITY. FROM 1943 THROUGH 1946, THE SINGLE CASE DESIGN HAD TO BE  PLACED ON HOLD AND THE STANDARD SNAP BACK UTILIZED.DUE TO THE FACT STEEL AND OTHER MATERIALS BECAME SCARCE SO, WYLER HAD TO INVEST IN SURPLUS READY MADE BRASS WITH CHROME PLATED CASES  WITH SNAP BACKS. THUS  THE MILITARY STYLE WATCHES WERE EITHER SINGLE CASE OR STANDARD SNAP BACK CASED

 AAAAAAwyl98.jpg (24799 bytes)

ABOVE IS THE BREAK DOWN OF THIS WYLER I AM USING THIS TO SHOW
YOU WHY IT WAS BETTER THAN ANY OTHER WATCH IN THE WORLD
BACK THEN.  TOP RIGHT IS INCAFLEX BALANCE. THE ONLY SHOCK ABSORBING BALANCE BOTTOM IS CASING NOTE THE TOP “RING” IS THE BEZEL IT ACTUALLY COMPRESSES THE CRYSTAL TO THE CRYSTAL WALL

WWII WAR INSPIRED MILITARY WATCHES

German Born, Paul Wyler, famous founder of the Wyler Watch Company and engineer who developed the Incaflex Balance and the Single Case Water Proof System, obtained seven Swiss patents for watch inventions between 1927 and 1980

WYLER-PILOT-27MM.jpg (140176 bytes) WYLER-GERMAN.jpg (179723 bytes)

WYLER MILITARY

Only two WWII Italian Air force Macchi-202 ‘s exist in museums today. This Italian Pilot may have invested in a “Wyler Pilot ” due to the fact is was only offered in Italy and the model shown was taken as booty by a Britt from an Italian Pilot in North Africa in 1943.

WYLER MILITARY

.The above Wyler was created and presented to the public during the 1936 Olympics in Germany. This rare Wyler model was only offered in Germany: making it a candidate for wear during WWII.

IMG_2324.jpg (97188 bytes)


THE “JUMP WATCHES” CAME IN TWO MODELS

SINGLE SEALED CASE & SNAP BACK CASE

THIS WWII Wyler, WITH Raised Radium Numeral and Hands with center sweep on a matte black dial is awesome. It served in France and Germany in WWII before finding itself in the Vietnam War Tet Offensive in 1968. In fact, this Wyler was with the 101st and was part of the rescue team in a Dustoff crash. Great history to say the least.

CLEANED UP. NOTE HOLE THROUGH, WHAT MANY INDIVIDUALS ARE NOT AWARE OF, THESE ALLOWED WIRE TO BE UTILIZED IF THE SPRING BAR BROKE.   I DID PAINT THE RED AND WHITE ON THE BEZEL. BUT DUE TO THE FACT IT IS SO RARE, REPLACING THE BEZEL IS NOT FEASIBLE. IT COULD BE MACHINED, BUT COSTS ARE ALWAYS THE QUESTION.

I LOCKED THE BEZEL.

I DID NOT RE-ILLUMINATE DUE TO THE FACT
THIS BEAUTY IS WORTH MUCH MORE AS IS

LOOKS ALMOST LIKE A BUBBLE. OPTICAL ILLUSIONS CAUSED FROM THE GREAT DESIGN OF THE DOUBLE BEZEL, DEEP POT CASE AND HIGH DOME CRYSTAL

THE STRAP IS LIKE THE ORIGINAL. NOTICE IT FITS LUGS PERFECTLY. STEEL WAS RATIONED DURING WWII MOST CASES WERE BASE BRASS WITH CHROME THE WYLER WAS EITHER STEEL SINGLE CASE OR CHROMED SNAP BACK CASED WIDE CHUNKY BEZELS WERE BRASS WITH CHROME THIS BEZELS IS SOLID BRASS ACTUALLY NEARLY REACHES THE TOP OF THE  CRYSTAL RATHER THAN BELOW

NATURALLY WHEN I RECEIVED THIS INVESTMENT IT HAD AN ORIGINAL COTTON STRAP LIKE ABOVE BUT IN SUCH DAMAGED CONDITION I HUNTED ONE DOWN THAT WAS PRETTY CLOSE TO THE ORIGINAL.

 ABOVE IS A PICTURE FROM OUR WWII GOV ISSUED 276 PAGE US MILITARYWATCH REPAIR MANUAL IT SHOWS  A MILITARY ISSUE STRAP UTILIZED ON WWII WATCHES THE OLIVE DRAB MILITARY  STRAP OFFERED WITH THIS WATCH IS A NEAR EXACT  COPY THE SAME AS SEEN ON THE MINI SERIES “PACIFIC” EPISODES 7, 8 AND 9

THE WWII WYLER MODELS WERE ETA OR AS EBAUCHE WITH MOD INCAFLEX AND HACKED SWEEP SECONDS. I HAD TY HE VERY NICE ORIGINAL MODEL BUT IT WAS MISSING PARTS.  IN ANY CASE, DENISE SAYS TO ME “IS THIS LIKE YOUR OTHER ONE? SHOULD I BID?” BOTTOM LINE IS THAT FOR ONLY 40 BUCKS SHE GOT IT!! AFTER IT WAS SHIPPED I REMOVED THE  PARTS AND REBUILT THIS ONE.

WWII
CENTER SWEEP


Prior to WWII, most watches had a sub-second register above the #6 position. This design failed to allow precision seconds timing. The sub-second style dial, with a tiny second hand rotating around a tiny seconds register at the 6 position, was difficult to utilize for timing events. In most cases it was ignored. On the other hand, a sweep second hand could be used to time events, mark events, and was easier to read .

By 1942, the sweep second hand watch had became “the” watch. Two of the major reasons were the Government issued U.S.A. A-11 hacking sweep seconds pilots watch and the sweep seconds watches in demand by Doctors, Medics and Nurses and other professionals.. The sweep second watch simply made the watch more than an instrument to “tell time”….

THE DESIGN

So, what did Pierce and others do?

Did they re-tool and re-design new movements? NO!

They simply placed a hollow canon pinion that allowed a wheeled center shaft to protrude through the dial, mounted a second hand to it, and ran the combo with the very sub-seconds wheel they were eliminating…

wpe1.jpg (30490 bytes)
gsw/mwb/gsww archive photo

 Instead of the drive train turning the dial protruding shaft/pinion at 6 position connected to the tiny second hand, they mounted a large brass/alloy wheel on the opposite side of the shaft that now protruded through the bridge. That wheel turned a wheel on top of a NEW center “shaft’ held in position be a new this jeweled bridge that went through a new HOLLOW center cannon pinion in the center of the movement that then protruded through the center of the dial where a new long sweep second hand attached;  the idea being that one had a large second hand that went round in tune with the movement and the chapter ring so one could count, time & now even synchronize.
