WWII HISTORY

ff40_3.jpg (56252 bytes)

THE HELBROS STORY

In 1913, when only the relatively well-to-do could afford a timepiece, Helbros was created
by the Helbein Brothers. The middle class Swiss German watchmakers goal was to manufacture
quality timepieces affordable to the working public. Throughout the 20’s and 30’s, Helbros
became a household name and by the 40’s and WWII,  Helbros was supplying watches to
American Forces and a major promoter of the War Bond efforts of the United States.

WWII WOMAN IN ACTION [1917 WWI RED CROSS MILITARY WATCH]

 

THUS, THE SUCCESSFUL HELBROS EFFORTS
FORMED THE FOUNDATION FOR TREMENDOUS SALES THAT INCLUDED A WIDE VARIETY OF USA WATCH NEEDY
PROFESSIONS: FROM NURSES, MEDICS, DOCTORS, OFFICE WORKERS AND BOMBER PILOTS, TO THOSE
COUNTRIES PARTICIPATING IN THE US LEND-LEASE PROGRAM, HELBROS PROVIDED THE LARGEST US
SECTORS WITH WATCHES.

THESE
EFFORTS WOULD NEARLY CAUSE A SCANDAL INVOLVING  HELBROS, THE GERMANS AND THE SOVIET
UNION. AS DEMONSTRATED BY THE BELOW SCREEN SHOT

extract from  a book about Helbros and money “channeling” in WW2:

WOULD BECOME ONE OF THE LOUDEST PROMOTERS OF WAR BONDS AND STAMPS AND..

EVEN AS THE WAR WOUND DOWN, HELBROS KEPT THEIR EYES ON THE PRIZE
BY CONVERTING THEIR MARKING PROGRAM BACK TO THE POPULOUS WITH THE FIRST EVER RADIO QUIZ
PROGRAM!

Quick
as a Flash was a 30-minute radio quiz program which featured drama segments with guest
actors from radio detective shows. Created by director Richard Lewis and emcee Ken
Roberts, the program debuted over the Mutual Network on Sunday, July 16, 1944. Sponsored
by the Helbros Watch Company, the show was produced by Lewis and Bernard J. Prockter with
scripts by Gene Wang. Music was by Ray Bloch and the Helbros Orchestra. Six contestants
from the studio audience competed for cash and other prizes. Clues were presented in the
form of dramatic sketches covering such subjects as current events, movies, books and
historical situations. With a buzzer, a contestant could interrupt at any time to submit
an answer

CROYDON

Croydon & Son, Devonport, By Appointment to the
Admiralty, Actually built watches for civilian and military use. Charles Croydon is
recorded working in Fore Street from 1844 until at least 1878 and then WITH his Son at 20
Fore Street circa 1890.

By WWII, Croydon Watch Company sold WATCHES produced in
Switzerland . Helbros was a supplier of specialty watches. this Helbros has 17 jewel top
grade movement with shock system.

The hand design had a reason and meaning and was ordered by
Croydon. I can assume with confidence several reasons for such a set-up. Whether or not it
actually worked for their SPECIFICATIONS, but watches like this one are the ones I live to
find and restore. And, this is only one of a few I ever kept so original!

WITH AN ITALIAN HAND MADE LIZARD SKIN STRAP

YOU MAY REQUEST A DIFFERENT STRAP

LEATHER SKIN HIDE NYLON STEEL PVD

PRICING WILL BE LESS COST OF THIS STRAP

OR

THE OPPOSITE IF LESS

IMG_7027.JPG (128818 bytes)

NOTE THE HANDS… ARE ORIGINAL

YES, I KNOW, THE MINUTE HAND LOOKS  COOL BUT
WEIRD! 

IMG_7020.JPG (162871 bytes)

THIS WATCH IS A HELBROS CUSTOM ORDERED BY CROYDON

CROYDON WAS  AN  ENGLISH WATCH COMPANY

“By Appointment to the Admiralty”

THEY ALSO SOLD WATCHES

TO THOSE IN THE BRITISH ARMED FORCES

IMG_7030.JPG (147250 bytes)

THE MINUTE HAND IS AWESOME

WITH RADIUM USED ON

NUMBERS & HANDS

ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT

IMG_7028.JPG (141064 bytes)

WE HAVE RESTORED A FEW HUNDRED HELBROS AND THREE
[COUNTING THIS ONE] WERE CROYDON HELBROS WATCHES ALL MADE AT THE SAME TIME AND ALL WITH
THE SAME MINUTE AND SECOND HAND

NOTE HOW EASY IT IS TO READ

THE ARROW POINTED PROVIDES LOOKS AS WELL AS EASE OF USE

NORMALLY WE HAVE TO RESTORE THE DIAL

WHEN WE REMOVE OLD RADIUM

IMG_7027.JPG (128818 bytes)

BUT RARITY AND CONDITION DICTATED

A LIGHT RESTORE OF ILLUMINATION

USING AF LUMINOVA

A PHOSPHORUS/ZINC COMBINATION

NOTE NO GLARE OR SHINE ON CASE.

A MILITARY CASE FINISH.

AND,  A STUNNING STRAP.

IMG_7026.JPG (157805 bytes)

THE MINUTE HAND ORIGINALLY WAS  BLACK

AT FIRST WE LEFT IT AS IS WITH PAINT MISSING

COPPER WITH RED

THE RADIUM LONG FLAKED OFF

BUT WE DECIDED TO PAINT IT AS IT WAS

AND ILLUMINATE THE TIP

IMG_7017.JPG (153378 bytes)

DIAL HAS LIGHT EVEN PATINA

I SEE SOME OFFERS WITH STAINED DIALS

BEING STATED AS “PATINA”

THIS BEAUTY HAS A GENUINE AGED PATINA DIAL

IMG_7031.JPG (141101 bytes)

I WILL START WITH RE-ILLUMINATION,WE HARDLY EVER
RE-ILLUMINATE W/O REMOVING EVERYTHING.- BUT THIS TIME PIECE IS WORTH SO MUCH MORE IN
ORIGINAL CONDITION REGARDLESS OF WEAR OR AGE.  SO ROCK TOOK THE TIME TO ILLUMINATE
THE NUMERALS WHILE MAINTAINING THE OUTLINES. WE ARE ALL HAPPY IT CAME OUT GREAT

IMG_7008.JPG (167204 bytes)

WE HAVE NEARLY 4 THOUSAND SETS OF HANDS INCLUDING
OVER 400 SETS OF ORIGINAL 1930 TO 1950 BLACK STEEL MILITARY HANDS WITH WINDOWS
[ILLUMINATION] LIKE THE ABOVE HOUR HAND. IF THE HAND WAS AMISS, WE WOULD SIMPLY PULL A .85
MM HAND,  RE-ILLUMINATE AND PLACE IT ON THE WATCH

 

 

HERE SHE IS BEFORE RE-ILLUMINATION. THE STRAP IS
WWII BUT IS A SMALL SIZE DUE TO SHRINKAGE. SO IT IS NOT ON THE WATCH NOR IS IT PART OF
OFFER.

 

IMG_5334.JPG (128849 bytes)

ANOTHER SHOT TAKEN WITH NO PROPS OR LENSES JUST
PLAIN PICTURE IN FULL LIGHT. THINK, 1930 TO 1940!.

ONE ITEM, RADIUM PAINTS ON. IT WAS RADIOACTIVE. IT
GLOWED 24/7. THE LUMINOVA IS AWESOME, BUT IT HAS TO BE CHARGED BY LIGHT, THE OTHER ITEM IS
WHEN PAINTED ON, RATHER THAN IN A “WINDOW” , IT GOES ON SLIGHTLY
BUMPY

IMG_7012.JPG (149752 bytes)

CASE HAD AN ANTI GLARE FINISH

IT REMAINS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION

IMG_7005.JPG (172097 bytes)

THIS STRAP COLOR IS 1940 STYLE

IMG_7004.JPG (176432 bytes)

REMEMBER YOU CAN ASK FOR BLACK OR BROWN NO
ADDITIONAL COST

IMG_7015.JPG (100999 bytes)

THIS ORIGINAL DIAL IS SUPER NICE. PERFECT PATINA,
OUTER NUMBERED TRIPLE SWEEPS CHAPTERS ARE BOLD. A PERFECT  AGED WITH GRACE PATINA
DIAL SIGNED CROYDON , SHOCK PROOF & SWISS. WHICH DEMONSTRATES THAT HELBROS MADE THIS
WATCH FOR CROYDON AND THE ONCE FAMOUS ENGLISH MARKET IN WWII.
