The West End Watch Company began there journey in 1886 from "The West End", a district of the center of London. The market that West End catered to was the British controlled Mid-East and India. By 1914, West End was offering solid, well made and cased Trench and Pocket Watches. Specializing in the Indian Military and Civil Services, West End, with acceptance of the British  Military, produced Trench Watches that were marked C.S.for the Civil Service in India and C-tailed broadarrow-S for Indian Military personal under British control.

JARWAN/HMT PARA SHOCK MILITARY WATCH WITH BROAD ARROW CASE & DIAL MARKINGS & ALL STEEL CONSTRUCTION INCLUDING WATER PROOF SCREW CASE BACK. Jawan was first registered as a trade mark by the West End Watch Co.. Since the late 1800's, West End Watch Co was a well established trade name in India . Jawan is a word in Hindi for SOLDIER. West End marketed Swiss watches to Indian military men. Within several years of the end of W.W.II, India began producing military issue watches under the HMT company logo utilizing a longer shafted version of the English  Broad Arrow on the back of their cases.

Jawan
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jawa (from Persian Jawan or Javan, meaning "young") refers to a young man in Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, and Punjabi. In the Indian subcontinent, it has additionally taken on the reference to an infantryman, and is used in much the same meaning as soldier in English. This term is specific to all ranks below that of a Commissioned Officer, primarily used in the armed forces of India and Pakistan.

TAKE A PAIR OF 19C EYE HOOK SHOES
WHILE NEVER USED OR POLISHED
AND KEPT IN A BASEMENT
THEY WERE WIPED DOWN EVER SO MANY YEARS
TAKE ANOTHER  PAIR OF 19C EYE HOOK SHOES
WHILE NEVER USED, POLISHED OR WIPED DOWN
THEY WERE KEPT IN A UTILITY CLOSET IN THE HOME
WHICH OF THESE WOULD YOU WANT TO BUY?

THE PAIR WIPED DOWN..... LEATHER MUST BREATH

IMG_5317.JPG (147140 bytes)

YES, FOR THIS LESSON THE ANSWER IS:
THE PAIR THAT WAS WIPED DOWN OVER THE PAST CENTURY
ALLOWED THE LEATHER TO BREATH


IMG_5343.JPG (164520 bytes)

LET US NOT GET TOO DEEP HERE. THERE ARE MANY REASONS
LEATHER BREAKS DOWN WHEN YOU KNOW THESE YOU CAN

AND WHICH CANNOT. 75% OF THE STRAPS ROCK OFFERS ARE
VINTAGE LEATHER OR COMPLETE VINTAGE  STRAPS.
ON THEIR 12 WEBSITES YOU CAN SEE STRAPS INVESTED IN
