THE ABOVE ADD DEMONSTRATES THAT MILITARY
WATCHES WERE MADE AND SOLD DIRECTLY TO TROOPS
ALSO THE USE OF RADIUM HAD COME OF AGE

 WWI

THE GREAT WAR
World War I (W.W.I) or First World War (called at the time the Great War) was a major war centered on Europe that began in the summer of 1914. The fighting ended in November 1918. This conflict involved all of the world's great powers assembled in two opposing alliances: the Allies (centered around the Triple Entente) and the Central Powers. More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilized in one of the largest wars in history. More than 9 million combatants were killed, due largely to great technological advances in firepower without corresponding advances in mobility. It was the second deadliest conflict in Western history.

TRENCH WARFARE
Trench warfare is where combatants occupy fighting lines consisting of fortified trenches. Trenches provided protection from small arms fire and, in most conditions, sheltered soldiers from artillery. Elaborate trenches and dugout systems were built by all sides and these were from assault by barbed wire. Though trenches were built to protect soldiers, life in the trench, with mud, rats, human waste and casualties, gas attacked and sustained artillery, was sheer hell. 

THE TRENCH WATCH
The Trench watch or wristlet was a type of watch that came into use by the military during World War I, as pocket watches were not practical in combat. The trench watch had to be rugged. Yet many trench watches were actually pocket watch conversions, with most having a clam shell back and snap on bezel. SHIELDS or SHRAPNEL GUARDS were introduced to protect the crystal of watches from damage due to life in a trench and not from artillery. It protected  the crystal from accidental breakage.

SERIOUS BUFFING AT HIGH HEAT & PRESSURE IS REQUIRED TO RESTORE
WATCH  CASES. THIS RIGOROUS PROCESS INCLUDES THE USE OF SEVERAL TYPES OF
ROUGE . ONE HAS TO "FEEL" THE PIECE TO GET IT RIGHT. THAT MEANS USING MY HANDS. WHEN YOU COMBINE THE EXTREME TEMPERATURES AND THE ROUGE,
THE DEPOSITS ON MY HANDS ARE SEMI-PERMANENT.  IT TAKES DAYS TO GET THE ROUGE OUT OF MY HANDS. SO, IF THE PICS OF MY HANDS LOOK "DIRTY", KNOW IT IS DUE TO THE MY HANDS ABSORBING WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT ON YOUR AWESOME RESTORED TIME PIECE!  HAVE A GREAT DAY!.
