VARIOUS TIMOR MILITARY BEFORE RESTORATION


RESEARCH FROM
"A CONCISE GUIDE TO MILITARY TIME PIECES"
"1880-1990"
Z.M. WESOLOWSKI\

FROM 1938 ON , TIMOR SUPPLIED A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF WATCHES TO THE BRITISH MILITARY. THE TIMOR MILITARY WATCH HAD BLACK OR WHITE LUMINOUS DIALS, WATERPROOF CASES, LARGE CROWN  AND  [DEPENDING  ON DATE FROM 1938-1954] FIXED STRAP LUGS. THOUGH THE FACT IS THAT MANY THOUSANDS OF THESE WATCHES WERE DELIBERATELY DESTROYED AT THE END OF THE WAR, THE WAR DEPARTMENT CONTINUED TO INVEST IN MILITARY WRIST WATCHES UNTIL THE 1950'S.

MILITARY WATCHES

SEVERAL YEARS WENT INTO REVERSING THE MYTH THAT WATCHES MADE FOR PRIVATE SALE TO MILITARY PERSONAL, ADVERTISED TO MILITARY PERSONAL, AND DESIGNED FOR MILITARY USE WERE NOT "MILITARY WATCHES."

TOUR CLAIM AND THE RESULTING FACTS, HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT THERE   WERE/IS WATCHES THAT GOV ERMENTS CONTRACTED FOR AND ISSUED,  AND THERE ARE THOSE THAT WERE DIRECTLY MANUFACTURED, OFTEN BETTER THAN THE GOV ISSUE, AND ADVIRTISED AND SOLD DIRECTLY TO  MILITARY PERSONAL IN STORES, THE US MILITARY PX/BX SYSTEM, AND R&R LOCATIOMNS ACROSS THE GLOBE..

VINTAGE ADDS ARE POSTED ON OUR 9 WEBSITES SHOWING THE ABOVE TO BE FACT.

INCLUDING PICTURES, ADDS AND WRITING THAT GO CONTRARY TO THE AGED POPULAR BELIEF THAT MORE MILITARY TRENCH WATCHES WERE SOLD DIRECTLY TO SOLDIERS IN WW I THAN WERE EVER  ISSUED BY ALL MILITARIES PUT TOGETHER DURING THAT WAR..

WE NOW KNOW AS FACT THAT THAT HATTORI/SEIKOSHAS USED RADIUM FOR   ILLUMINATED POCKET WATCHES, POCKET  CHRONOGRAPHS,TIMERS AND WRIST WATCHES AND THAT FROM AT LEAST 1912, THE JAPANESE USED ACTUAL SWISS AND AMERICAN  MOVEMENTS, MADE CLOSE COPIES OF SWISS AND AMERICAN MOVEMENTS, AND  RESTAMPED SWISS AND AMERICAN MOVEMENTS INTO SEIKOSHA MOVEMENTS.

THE TIMOR MILITARY WATCH
GOV CONTRACT VS DIRECT SALES

LAST BUT NOT LEAST.  THE TIMOR COMPANY, PRODUCERS OF WACHES DESIGNED FOR MILITARY USE SPECIFICALLY DURING  WWII AND KOREA, OFFERED A NEAR EXACT COPY OF THE BRITISH  TIMOR OF WWII. DIRECTLY TO US SOLDIERS.

WHEN I STATE "NEAR EXACT COPY", ONE WOULD FIRST BELIEVE THIS TO MEAN "NOT AS GOOD" OR  "FUNTIONS WERE LESS THAN THE REAL DEAL"!

RIGHT??

WELL, AS I HAVE STATED FOR YEARS. MOST WATCHES MANUFACTURED FOR DIRECT SALE TO SOLDIERS DURING WWI,  WWII, KOREA AND.... YES, THAT IS CORRECT, VIETNAM, WERE CONTRUCTED BETTER THAN THE BETTER THE GOVERNMENT ISSUE!

FOR INSTANCE,  WHILE THE BRITISH STAMPED "ATP" AND/OR BRITISH "BROAD ARROW" / "CROWS FOOT"   ON MANY TIMOR WRIST WATCHES, THE FACT REMAINS THATNEARLYALL OF THOSE DISCOVERED TODAY  HAVE THE AS 1194 15 JEWEL WITHOUT INCABLOC. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT ONLY A FEW   RARE RARE RARE BRITISH TIMOR FINDS EVER HAVE THE 24 HR MILITARY CHAPTER AND WERE SUB-SECONDS AND LATER, SWEEP SECOND HAND. --THE BRITISH GOV PLACED 15 AS THE JEWEL COUNT FOR WRIST WATCHES AND POCKETS.-----.

YET, FOR DIRECT SALE, ESPECIALLY IN THE AMERICAN MARKET AS WELL AS MILITARY PX/BX SYSTEM, THE TIMOR OFFERED HAD THE AS 1194 17 JEWEL MOVEMENT WITH INCABLOC, 24 HOUR MILITARY TIME, AND HAD SWEEP SECONDS .

I REST MY FACTS.................

NOW THIS DOES NOT GO AGAINST THE ORIGINALITY OF THIS WWII TIMOR
INFACT THEY WERE MANUFACTURED WITH AND WITHOUT THE BRAND
THE REASON IT WAS NOT ON THIS USA VERSION
WAS THE FACT TIMOR WAS SUPPLYING THE BRITISHARMYWITH 15JEWEL MODELS
