UPDATING FOR THIS TIME PIECE WILL BE ON LSYF.COM

KF GRANA

WWII GERMANY

WHAT WOULD IT BE WITHOUT ITS HISTORY. AMAZING IS WHAT IT IS. YOU HAVE TO PLACE YOUR SELF IN THE BOARD ROOM OF KF..

… THE WORLD HAS CHANGED. THE SWISS ARE LOOKING AT THE DOLLAR AGAIN. MANUFACTURERS SEE GERMANY RISING. THE 1936 OLYMPICS ARE SPLASHED ACROSS THE WORLD. THE DEPRESSION IS RESCINDING. ORDERS ARE COMING IN FOR STEEL, CHEMICALS AND IN THAT BOARD ROOM A YOUNG MAN STANDS AND INTRODUCES THE NEW TOP OF THE LINE KF GRANA..

THEY TALK ABOUT THE MOVEMENT AND A DRAWING SLIDES ACROSS THE TABLE AS THEY OOOH AND AAAAH..

FIVE DAYS ABSENT FROM THE MEETING ADVERTISEMENTS ARE BEING DESIGNED,, FROM PARIS, THE NUMBER ONE DESTINATION OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS TO HAVANA,CUBA, THE NUMBER TWO DESTINATION, SWISS KF GRANA LIGHT UP MAGAZINES.. ON STREET CARS ACROSS EUROPE KF IS EVERY WHERE…

SOON ORDERS ARE COMING IN FROM THE GERMAN WEHRMACHT….

YOUR WATCH IS SHIPPED…

AMONG 50 OTHER BRANDS, 22 BOXES STAMPED “SWISS KF GRANA” LINE THE WALL AS THE BORED YET BUSY 3 STRIPE ENLISTED GRABS ANOTHER 4 BOXES OF PHENIX WATCHES .. HE STOPS, HOLDING THE 4 BOXES HE HAD PICKED UP.. HE RECOGNIZES OTHERS WITH THE KF BRAND ON THEM ..

‘DID I NOT JUST SEE A KF ADVERTISEMENT ON THE STREET CAR?’

HE PLACED THE PHENIX BOXES DOWN AND, WITH EXTRA CARE, HE PICKED UP 4 KF BOXES -EACH HOLDING 12 GRANA WATCHES – AND PLACED THEM WITH EXTRA CARE ON HIS STAMPING BENCH.

GENTLY OPENING THE FIRST WOOD BOX, REVEALED SOMETHING GLOWING GREEN UNDER THE STRAW, 12 GLOWING GREEN GRANA WATCHES SOON REVEALED THEM SELVES.

EACH GLOWING BRIGHT RADIUM GREEN KF GRANA SEEMED FROM ANOTHER WORLD.. A GIFT OF THE GODS THAT ONCE RULED THE GERMANIC PEOPLES.. OTHER WATCHES WERE RADIUM ENHANCED, BUT THE KF GRANA WAS THE LATEST LOOK. BLACK DIAL, SUB REGISTER, PAINTED NUMBERS, STEEL CASED.. HE WAS STUNNED..

HE HAS NEVER OWNED A WATCH LET ALONE SEEN SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MECHANISM.. “YOU ARE ALIVE” HE SAID TO THEM AS HE PICKED UP THE FIRST ONE…

…THUS HE BEGAN HIS STAMPING…..

TWO WEEKS LATER, THE DAY ARRIVED WHEN 48 GERMAN OFFICERS GRADUATED TRAINING. THERE THEY STOOD, UNIFORMS PRESSED, CAPS SET WITH INVISIBLE LEVELS, AND THEIR BOOTS SLICK WITH SPIT AND POLISH. ASSIGNED TO THEIR VARIOUS DIVISIONS, COMPANIES, PLATOONS.. EACH ONE WAS HANDED A GLOWING 24HR RADIUM KF GRANA AND TOLD: “THIS IS GOVERNMENT PROPERTY, EXPENSIVE GOVERNMENT PROPERTY, WEAR IT WELL AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT”…

NEEDLESS TO SAY, MOST OF THESE MEN STOOD STUNNED. OUTSIDE OF A FEW WEALTHY OFFICERS, MOST OF THESE LEUTNANT, KAPITANLEUTNANT, HAUPTMANN AND OBERLEUTNANT HARDLY HAD LIGHTS IN THEIR HOMES LET ALONE SOMETHING TO TELL TIME BY.. EVEN AT NIGHT!

… THE DAY THEY SHOW UP FOR DUTY OTHER OFFICERS MILL AROUND TO LISTEN TO THE TALK OF WHAT IS HAPPENING IN BERLIN OR OTHER CITIES AND PLACES THE NEW OFFICERS ARE FROM. IT IS NOT LONG BEFORE ONE SEASONED OFFICER NOTES SOMETHING MORE THAN THE SPIFFY NEW UNIFORMS, THE POLISHED TO MIRROR BOOTS… YES, SOON ALL THE EYES FOCUS ON THE BEAUTIFUL BLACK DIALED RADIUM ILLUMINATED KF GRANA’ PEEKING IN GREEN FROM UNDER THE CUFFS OF THE NEW OFFICERS JACKETS AND/OR OVER COATS.

WHAT IS THAT? ONE OFFICER REQUESTS.. A GRANA SIR, MADE BY KF!

“KF YOU SAY? BEAUTIFUL… THE SWISS ARE ACTUALLY GERMANS….”

[THE GERMAN ANSWER TO AN ITEM MOST WONDERFUL YET NOT MADE IN GERMANY]

IN EVERY LANGUAGE, IN EVERY TIME, NOTHING IS DIFFERENT BUT THE OBJECTS WE BUILD, DESIRE, FIGHT FOR, REQUEST OR GIVEAWAY.

HUMAN EMOTION THOUGHT AND ACTION HAS REMAINED THE SAME SINCE MAN FIRST WALKED THE EARTH….JEALOUSY, GREED, DESIRE, JOY, HATE, LOVE ARE PART AND PORTION OF THE INITIAL SPARKS THAT CONTINUE TO CREATE OR ALTER OR BUILD OR DESTROY OUR WORLD.

ALL THAT OCCURS BEGINS THEREIN; NO MATTER THE LANGUAGE OR ACCENT….

PEACE AND WAR FROM WITHIN THE FAMILY UNIT TO THE NATIONAL UNIT EVOLVE FROM ALL THE SAME FEARS, DESIRES AND WANTS..EACH MOTIVATED BY PROPERTY.

THUS WE SHOULD THINK OF HISTORY MORE THAN SIMPLY A TIME IN THE PAST,
OR THE PAST OF OUR HISTORY.. WE MUST THINK OF IT AS THE FUTURE OF OUR TIME, FOR HISTORY DOES REPEAT ITSELF UNDER NEW NAMES AND PROPERTY.

THE GRANA AND OTHER WRIST WATCHES FROM SOME OF THE BEST IN THEIR DAY WATCH COMPANIES WERE SUPPLIED TO GERMAN OFFICERS AND NON COM ENLISTED. MORE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY.. INCLUDING THE US. TOWARDS THE END OF WWII, MANY GERMAN SOLDIERS SURVIVED BECAUSE OF THE KF GRANA AND OTHER WATCHES THEY WORE, AND OTHERS DIED BECAUSE OF IT. MANY RUSSIAN AND EASTERN EUROPEAN SOLDIERS TOOK THESE WATCHES FROM SURRENDERING GERMANS, AND SHOT EVEN MORE FOR THEIR WATCHES.

YOUR WATCH SURVIVED THIS TERRIBLE HISTORY WHERE MANY OF THE MEN WHO WORE THESE WATCHES MURDERED NEARLY AN ENTIRE PEOPLES…

YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME PIECE . WHEN I COMPLETE IT IT WILL BE AS IT WAS NEW YET HAVE WITHIN IT THE ABOVE TRUE HISTORY

grana-1938

View picture in original size

Certina, Kurth Frères SA
Grenchen, Solothurn

1888:
Founded as Gebrüder Kurth by Adolf and Alfred Kurth in
Grenchen. Production of ebauches and watch parts, with just three employees.

1897
: Finishing of a new factory building

1906:
Introduction of the brand Grana for complete watches (from Latin Granacus = Grenchen)
.
1934:
The Swiss Law for Protection and Regulation of the Watch Market
(Uhrenstatut) didn’t allow the supply of complete watches and
ebauches simulateously. While e.g. Eterna responded with the separation
of the movement activities under the name ETA, Kurth Frères gave up the ebauche supply, and engaged stronger in
watch manufacturing, and sold complete movements mainly to customers in Switzerland and the U.S.A.

1939:

Registration of the brand Certina. Initially it was intended for economical volume models,
while Grana was reserved for top models. But it soon proved to be too expensive
to hold two brands on the market, and so the brand Grana vanished.

1944:
Introduction of the model line Labora, representing economical but rugged watches.

1955:
Renamed to Certina, Kurth Frères SA.

1958:
Production start of the famous DS line, although it was
officially lounged in 1959. DS = double security represents extremely heavy duty watches.

1971:
Certina is foundation member of the General Watch Co. (GWC) initiated by the ASUAG;
further members: Edox/Era, Endura, Eterna, Longines, Mido, Rado, Rotary, Technos.

1982:
Merger of the ASUAG with the SSIH (among others Omega, Tissot), initiated by Nicolas G. Hayek. This trust developed within few years
to the SMH (Société Suisse de Micro-Électronique et d’Horlogerie SA), which was renamed to Swatch Group in 1998.

GRANA WAS THE KF [LATER THE CERTINA BRAND) HIGH END BRAND
THIS GRANA KF WATCH DIAL HAD RADIUM NUMERALS
NOTE THE SECONDS REGISTER AT BOTTOM
IT WAS CUT INTO DIAL
SEE THE BRASS SHOWING THROUGH

I WILL RESTORE THE DIAL AS IT WAS AND LOOKING LIKE IT WAS
WITH NEW AF-LUMINOVA PHOSPHORUS AND ZINC ILLUMINATION
HANDS WILL BE RESTORED BLUED BLACK ANF ILLUMINATED

IMG_1049.JPG (142120 bytes)

MOVEMENT RING KEEPS MOVEMENTS IN CASE
THIS GRANA WOULD NOT HAVE HAD A CHEAPER STYLE HOLDER
RATHER TWO SCREWS WOULD HAVE HELD THE MOVEMENT IN A STEEL RING

THIS MOVEMENT RING IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG
ALL MOVEMENTS THAT ARE SMALLER THAN HOLD LEDGE
REQUIRE THE INSERT STYLE FLAST SIDE STEEL RING WITH SLOTS PERFECTLY PLACED
THE MOVEMENT IS PLACED INTO THE RING
THE MNETAL TABS DROPED IN, ONE ON EACH SIDE
THEN SREWS PLACED AND TIGHENED
IT BECOMES ONE PIECE

I WILL HAVE TO FIND ONE?????
OR MAKE ONE

MOVEMENT-HOLDER

IMG_1045.JPG (136568 bytes)

THE MOVEMENT & DIAL ARE SMALLER THAN THE OPENING OIN THE CASE
IT FALLS THROUGH WHERE CRYSTAL FITS.
THE STEM IS THE ONLY ITEM GFHOLDING THE
MOVEMENT/DIAL FROM HITTING CRYSTAL
NOTE THE HEIGHT OF EDGE OF MOVEMENT
AND THE STEM

NOTE THE AWESOME KF BRANDING

NEW CROWN/TUBE SEAL WILL BE FITTED
NO GUARANTEE APPLIES TO STEM/CROWNS

IMG_1042.JPG (168790 bytes)

NOTE THE RIGHT SIDE IS UP AND HELD UP BY STEM
WHILE THE LEFT SIDE IS THROUGH THE CASE TO CRYSTAL
THE SPACE BETWEEN INTERIOR CASE WALL AND MOVEMENT TOOLARGE
USING THE CASE HOLDER SIMPLY PUSHES MOVEMENT T FURTHER WHEN CASE BACK IS SECURED

WHILE THIS IS A LATER MOVEMENT
IT IS APPROPIATE TO THE TIME PIECE
AND ONLY ONE MODEL UPGRADE OFF
THUS

MOVEMENT OVERHAULED
SERVICED
NEW MAIN SPRING WILL BE ADDED FOR FREE

IMG_1040.JPG (202521 bytes)

NEW PROPER SPRING BARS ARE REQUIRED THESE ARE WRONG

THE HOLDER IS RESTING ON THE DIAL SIDE LEDGE
YET THE MOVEMENT EDGE NOR DIAL ARE OVER THE LEDGE
SO HOLDER IS ACTUALLY HOLDING NOTHING

IT IS MY PRO ESTIMATE AND CONCLUSION THAT THIS MOVEMENT IS NOT
ORIGINAL TO THIS CASE OR PERIOD.

KF DID MANUFACTURE WATCHES FOR GERMANY BEFORE WWII ACTUALLY COMMENCED.
THE PERIOD THAT D H WAS BEING IMPRINTEED 1935 THROUGH 1941
AFTER THE WAR BEGAN, THE SWISS WERE NEUTRAL AND CONTINUED TO DELIVER WATCHES?
MORE AND MORE WATCHES WERE ISSUED W/O THE DJH

THOUGH THE DIAL MAY ALSO BE 1950/55 .
IT IS EXAXCTLY AS THE 193O’S ISSUE
THE MOVEMENT SIZE DID NOT CHANGE
THISMEANS THE STEEL RINFG SYSTEM WAS USED

SO, THE DIAL IS FOR THIS CASE. BUT A
STEEL RING WITH SLOTS AND SCREWS WITH METAL STUBS THAT
FIT IBNTO SLOTS, ALLOWED THE MOVEMENT AND DIAL TO FIT THE CASE

ONCE IT ARRIVES 3 HOURS AND
THE MOVEMENT WILL BE COMPLETE

you are a lucky investor. only 29999 [1 under 30,000]
Waltham 6.0 b movements were made IN 1942. And though the walthams are the most difficult
of the quad suppliers -elgin-bulova-hamilton-waltham— FOR THE a-11 and ord watches for
the us military, it remains the rarest. 1942 WAS THE FIRST YEAR OF THIS MODEL.

the fact is, there are existing figures that should blow
you away.. while Waltham designs were more difficult than any other brand to
service/repair, such as the 5 part main spring barrel -notorious for failure – and their
A-II hack lever that broke constantly– once running with proper service it will be a
great time piece.

If worn all the time, this watch would require a service
every 4 to 5 years. though i will use rolex synthetic lubes to extend that period.

synthetic lube is 60 dollars a gram ves 25.00 for 2
ounces of top grade natural oils….

and, on the good side, these facts mean that your time
piece is one of the rarest of the military issue… that is fact. 29999 thousand 6/0
movements were made.

your serial number is 32098606

32084001 the first serial / the last serial 32114000

29999 how many made
32098606 your serial

though there were other runs for later 6/0 WALTHAM WATCHES, LIKE THE KOREAN WAR A-17…
rest assured this one is rare….

NOTE-THERE WERE OVER 33 MILLION 6/0 MOVMENTS IN VARIOUS STYLES MADE FROM 1940 THROUGH
1958. MORE THAN 3/4 ARE/WERE 6/0 POCKET WATCH MOVEMENTS. THESE ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE
WITH WRIST MOVEMENTS. SOME OF THE WRIST STYLES CONTAIN INTERCHANGEABLE PARTS. PROBLEM ISM
THOSE THAT SURVIVED ARE PARTS WATCHES HIDDEN AWAY IN OLD WATCH MAKER RUINS…
