BELOW IS FROM A MONTGOMERY POCKET WATCH BOX WE OFFERED 4 YEARS AGO. I WAS AMAZED TO READ WHATI WROTE. THIS OFFER IS FOR ONE OF THE DESCRIBED LEONIDAS IN YELLOW BELOW. IT IS GENUINE SORRY WECANNOT DISPLAY THE CASE BACK IN THEWAY WE WOULD LIKE TO. SO IF YOU AE OFFENDED BY WWII GERMA ARTIFACTS THIS OFFER IS NOT FOR YOU. I HAVE PICS ON OUR SITES..

LEONIDAS WATCH CO. WAS FOUNDED IN 1841 AT ST. IMIER BY JULIEN BOURQUIN. LEONIDAS SPECIALIZED IN HIGH QUALITY COMPLICATED WATCHES INCLUDING MOON PHASE, TRIPLE CALENDAR, CHRONOGRPAHS AND EXCEPTIONAL MILITARY WATCHES; WHICH INCLUDED WRIST & POCKET WATCHES, ARTILLERY-BOMBER TIMERS AND AREOPLANE/ AIRPLANE DASH WATCHES.

LEONIDAS WAS A MAIN SUPPLIER FOR THE GERMAN MILITARY.

WRIST WATCHES WITH NA{}ZI EAGLE AND SWAS{}TIKA ETCHED/ENGRAVED ONTO THE BACK OF THEIR CASES WERE STANDARD FARE.

LEONIDAS MADE THE 1940' AEREONAUTICA LEONIDAS DASH PANEL WATCH FOR MOUNTING ON GERMAN AIRPLANE DASH PANELS. 

THE GERMAN NAVY (Kriegsmarine) UTILIZED LEONIDAS ARTILLERY TIMERS.

MANY OF THE LEONIDAS WATCHES MADE FOR THE GERMANS WERE MADE IN THE 1930'.

WITH THE OUT BREAK OF WARIN 1939, THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT, SEEKING QUALITY WATCHES, INVESTED IN LEONIDAS POCKET WATCHES. THEY WERE MAINLY UTILIZED AS "DECK WATCHES"

IMG_1864.JPG (34502 bytes)

NOTE CASE
THE FINISH ON THIS CASE WAS A NONE GLARE MILITARY STYLE FINISH
MORE ON THE LINES OF * PARKERIZING
IT WAS NOT CHROME PLATED
WUITH CHROME PLATING WE REMOVE THE WORN CHROME
THEN REFINISH IN NICKEL
ON THIS CASE WE JUST PERFORMED A COPPER WIRE WHEEL BRUSH
AND
ELECTRO CLEANIING
IT CAME OUT VERY NICE

*WE HAVE OFFERED WATCHES DATINGAS FARBACK AS WWI AND THE 1920/30'S THAT WERE FINISHED IN THE SAME LOOK AS PARKERIZING. EARLY US MILITARY "ORD" CASES COME TO MIND. WHILE   MOST MODERN  PARKERIZING IS PERFORMED ON STEEL FIREARMS, THE PROCESS OF AND   TITLE "PARKERIZING" IS ONLY UTILIZED HEREIN TO DESCRIBE THE TYPE OF FINISH RATHER THAN THE ACTUALWAY IT WAS ACCOMPLISHED. AFTER A COPPER WHEEL AT 4000 RPM AND SERIOUSE DETAILING, ONE CAN SEE THAT THE SURFACE STILL LOOKS "PORUS" THOUGH IT IS NOT ACTUALLY PORUS.

Parkerizing, bonderizing, phosphating, or phosphatizing is a method of protecting a steel surface from corrosion and increasing its resistance to wear through the application of an electrochemical phosphate conversion coating. Parkerizing is usually considered to be an improved zinc or manganese phosphating process, and not to be an improved iron phosphating process, although some use the term parkerizing as a generic term for applying phosphating (or phosphatizing) coatings that does include the iron phosphating process.

I ATTEMPTED TO MATCH THE ORIGINAL FULL LOOK
