THE ELGIN PERSHING

DURING WWI, ELGIN CREATED A WATCH WITH A UNLQUE BLACK “AMERICAN MILITARY DIAL. WITH 48 STARS FOR THE STATES, A SHELD AND EAGLE, WITH USA AND ELGIN. THEY WERE AWESOME. THE DIAL WAS CASED IN CUSHION CASES IN SILVER, GOLD FILLED AND NICKLE – SIMILAR TO THE 1918 GERMAN ALPINA BELOW. IT DID NOT SELL WELL. AND ELGIN HAD A FORTUNE TIED UP SO THEY CAME UP WITH AN IDEA… USE GENERAL PERSHINGS NAME…..

[EVENTUALLY THEY WOULD PRODUCE SOME WITH WHITE DIALS,]

REMEMBER, THEY WERE AN EXPENSIVE DUD. SALES WERE NOT IN LINE WITH COSTS. BUT ALL IN ALL THEY NEEDED A PROPER NAMES. INTRODUCE GENERAL JOHN J “BLACK JACK” PERSHING. THEY NAMED THE WATCH AFTER THE NOW FAMOUS GENERAL. THUS THE WATCH COMPLETE WAS CALLED THE PERSHING. ADVEERTISE AS JONN J BLACK JACK PERSHING. THE POPULARITY OF PERSHING MEANT THE WATCHES BEGAN FLYING OFF THE SELVES.

WWII BIG RED ONE
1ST ID

In 17 months under Gen Pershing, the 1st ID went from a a small,loose group of rapidly trained ground troops, to a concise, well trained and courageous unit that helped defeat the most powerful army in the world’

Over 22,320 1st ID troops perished in the Great War, 1ST ID helped clear St. Mihiel salient , fought in the Meuse-Argonne Forest advancing seven kilometers and defeating eight German divisions, completed the farthest American penetration of the war, was first to cross the Rhine into occupied Germany. Five Medals of Honor were awarded. The 1st ID colors carry campaign streamers for (1) Lorraine, 1917; (2) Lorraine, 1918; (3) Picardy, 1918; (4) Montdidier-Noyon; (5) Aisne-Marne; (6) St. Hihiel; and (7) Meuse- Argonne.

America’s military stepped into the 20th century on the backs of those troopers of the 1st ID . And two decades later the 1st ID would once again place the U.S. Army at the forefront of the Western world.
