While Japan provided SEIKOSHA made, SWISS made & Hybrid [Japan Case/Dial, w/Swiss and Japanese Movement] watches, timers, ships watches and chronographs in limited numbers compared with total amount of forces, many watches we discover that survived the napalm fire bombing, and atomic bombs and bonzai charges in the air and on the land, and the sinking of the ships and subs, were those supplied by the individual soldier and officer. Many of the watches and timers that survived were either captured or sold to the occupation forces such as the 11th Airborne and 8th Army.
