JARWAN HMT

IMG_4981.JPG (133966 bytes)

THIS JARWAN CARRIES THE END DESIGN BROAD ARROWS ONCE LICENSED BACK IN THE DAY OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE.

PERMISSION WAS GIVEN TO West End Watch Company IN THE YEAR 1800 TO USE THE KINGS MARK ON MILITARY AND STRATEGIC EXPORT GOODS.

EVENTUALLY, THE BRITISH KINGS MARK WAS UTILIZED ON THE JAWAN -A WORD IN HINDI FOR SOLDIER- TRENCH WATCH.

ROCK RECENTLY SOLD A WWI JAWAN BY WEST END THAT WAS GIVEN TO A REGIMENT OF BRITISH AND INDIAN TROOPS. THEY WERE TESTING THE TIMES PIECES AND ONLY WEST END KNEW.

WEST END WOULD ALSO MARKET SWISS TIME PIECES TO INDIAN MILITARY MEN, SOME WITH THE MARK,

EVENTUALLY THE BROAD ARROW ON CASE BACK WOULD GROW TO A THIN ARROW ATOP A LONG THIN NECK.

YET DIALS CONTINUED TO FEATURE THE SAME BROAD ARROW UTILIZED ON WWII BRITISH WATCHES.

THE  JARWAN/HMT PARA SHOCK MILITARY WATCH WITH BROAD ARROW CASE & DIAL MARKINGS & ALL STEEL CONSTRUCTION INCLUDING WATER PROOF [WATER RESISTANT] SEALED CASE BACK.

Jawan was first registered as a trade mark by the West End Watch Co..

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.

BY THE end of W.W.II, India was producing military issue watches under the HMT company logo.

The longer shafted version of the English Broad Arrow, as previously explained, was stamped on the back of their cases.

Jawa (from Persian Jawan or Javan, meaning "young") refers to a young man in Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, and Punjabi.

On the Indian subcontinent, it has additionally taken on the reference to an infantryman, and is used in much the same meaning as "soldier".

This term is specific to all ranks below that of a Commissioned Officer, and primarily used in the armed forces of India and Pakistan.
