HELBROS WWII WATCH BOX INSERT

In 1913, when only the relatively well-to-do could afford a timepiece, HELBROS was created by the Helbein Brothers. The middle class Swiss German watchmakers goal was to manufacture quality timepieces affordable to the working public. Throughout the 20's and 30's, Helbros became a household name and by the 40's and WWII,   Helbros was supplying watches to American Forces and a major promoter of the War Bond efforts of the United States. HELBROS Quick as a Flash was a 30-minute radio quiz program which featured drama segments with guest actors from radio detective shows.

Created by director Richard Lewis and emcee Ken Roberts, the program debuted over the Mutual Network on Sunday, July 16, 1944. Sponsored by the Helbros Watch Company, the show was produced by Lewis and Bernard J. Prockter with scripts by Gene Wang. Music was by Ray Bloch and the Helbros Orchestra.Six contestants from the studio audience competed for cash and other prizes. Clues were presented in the form of dramatic sketches covering such subjects as current events, movies, books and historical situations. With a buzzer, a contestant could interrupt at any time to submit an answer.

IMG_5661.JPG (43452 bytes)

THE ONLY AREA OF WEAR IS THE BEZEL
WHICH IS A GENUINE DIVERS
BI-DIRECTIONAL BEZEL WITH
WIRE LOCK SPRING
SOME OF THE EDGE  HAS WEAR BUT IN REAL LIFE
IT IS MUCH LESS AT 38MM

IMG_5555.JPG (52297 bytes)

NOTE THE WIRE SPRING ABOVE

IMG_5668.JPG (35085 bytes)

THE TRITIUM ILLUMINATION IS ORIGINAL
IT DOES NOT GLOW AS LONG AS

BUT WHEN YOU GET YOUR HANDS ON
A FULLY ORIGINAL TIME PIECE
IN SUPER OUTSTANDING FINE CONDITION
YOU GO WITH THE FLOW
AND WEAR THE WATCH KNOWING
ITS VALUE WILL CONTINUE TO GROWN

IMG_5646.JPG (31921 bytes)

THIS NAVY-MARINES EMBLEM BRACELET
IS RARE AND AWESOME

IMG_5647.JPG (35141 bytes)


THIS BRACELET IS LIKE THE TIMEPIECE
CLEAN SMOOTH LOOKING FANTASTIC
ESPECIALLY FOR A
VIETNAM ERA PX HELBROS DIVERS WATCH

IMG_5652.JPG (34365 bytes)

THIS FITS UP TO 7.5 AND I HAVE
AN EXTENSION IF YOU REQUIRE ONE

IMG_5657.JPG (35858 bytes)

THIS IS A 100% SOLID
STAINLESS STEEL TIME PIECE
CASE IS NEAR PERFECT
BRACELET IS NEAR PERFECT
IT HAS WEIGHT
AND IS A NICE
38MMM X 46 MM

IMG_5658.JPG (39675 bytes)

THE ORIGINAL LARGE DOUBLE SEALED CROWN
WITH MATCHING STEM TUBE
HAS BEEN RESEALED AND SILICONE 7
ADDED FOR BETTER PROTECTION

IMG_5566.JPG (51316 bytes)

AFTER NEW SEALS WERE PLACED IN CROWN
I PLACED ENOUGH SILICONE 7 VACUUM PROTECTION
YOU SEE IT OOZING OUT BEFORE I CLEAN THE EXCESS

IMG_5557.JPG (42494 bytes)

THIS IS NOT REFINISHED
IT IS ORIGINAL
NOTICE THE CROWN DOUBLE FLANGE
NOTICE THE T SWISS T DENOTING TRITIUM
IT IS A 1965 AND THEY WERE SOLD IN THE US PX SYSTEM
THE ZODIAC STYLED MARKERS WITH LUME AND NUMERALS
WAS NOT COINCIDENTAL
HELBROS MADE A SERIOUS ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE
SOME OF THE ZODIAC FAME
AND THEY DID WITH THIS STUNNING
SKIN  DIVERS WATER PROOF STAINLESS TIME PIECE

IMG_5571.JPG (44407 bytes)

THIS HELBROS WOULD BE NEAR MINT IF NOT FOR THE BEZEL INSERT
THE WEAR FROM 20 TO 30 DOES NOT SHOW AS IT DOES HERE WITH
MAGNIFICATION. IN FACT, I TRULY GAVE LOTS OF THOUGHT
TO KEEPING HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IMG_5565.JPG (40637 bytes)

NOTE THE LARGE STEM TUBE ON LEFT
CASE WAS SUPER DETAILED WHILE KEEPING
THE CORNERS AND BEVELS SHARP AND FRESH
A NEW CRYSTAL WAS INSTALLED

IMG_5564.JPG (48766 bytes)

I HATE CRYSTAL INSTALLATION
I UTILIZE UV CEMENT IN ADDITION TO THE NATURAL
PRESSURE FIT. IT INSURES S GREAT SEAL
BUT A NIGHTMARE ENSUES DUE TO SMALL AMOUNTS
WINDING UP ON THE CRYSTAL

THERE IS A NEW BLACK CASE BACK SEAL ALSO 

IMG_5579.JPG (34345 bytes)

LIKE I SAID. THE CASE IS SUPER

IMG_5567.JPG (51071 bytes)

DOES THIS NOT LOOK LIKE
THE WATCH CASE NEEDS HELP?

ALL THAT "STUFF" IS VACUUM
SILICONE 7. IT IS GENEROUSLY PLACED
ON CASE BACK SEAL AND STEEL
THEN CASE BACK IS SCREWED TIGHTLY

THEN EXCESS WIPED OFF


IMG_5640.JPG (34732 bytes)

A LOT OF WORK WENT INTO THE CASE BACK
IT WAS SCRATCHED AND MARRED
FROM PEOPLE TRYING TO OPEN THE CASE
THIS PARTICULAR CASE, WHEN TIGHTENED DOWN
ACTUALLY DOUBLE SEALS

ANTI MAGNETIC
SKIN DIVER ALL STAINLESS STEEL
100%

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND.
