THE ELGIN A-8 GRADE 582 “A-8” WAS DESIGNATED BY THE US ARMY-AIRFORCE AS: Watch. Navigation(Ground Speed) Type A-8.

THE MAIN FEATURE IS THAT A FULL REVOLUTION IS ONLY 10 SECONDS.

THE A-8 “JITTERBUG” NAVIGATION TIMER IS A 10 SECOND STOP WATCH UTILIZED BY NAVIGATION CREWS TO SET GROUND SPEED TO DETERMINE THE ****AIR SPEED OF EVERY BOMBER THAT SERVED IN THE VARIOUS ALLIED FORCES DURING WWII. THE NAME “JITTERBUG” WAS GIVEN THE A-8 BY AIR CREWS DUE TO NOISE IT MADE WHEN RUNNING.

SO, THIS ELGIN TIMER WAS FOR WWII USE.IT WAS  MADE IN MID 1944. IT PURPOSELY HAS A CROWN THAT ONLY ALLOWS WINDING AND STARTING, AND, THE CROWN MUST BE HELD DOWN TO OPERATE. AND, PICTURES SHOW THAT REPAIRS WERE AT A MILITARY BASE/ESTABLISHMENT. THAT THE CROWN HAS A ROUND WITH FLAT EXTENDED BUBBLE TOP ALLOWS IT TO BE PUSHED DOWN ON OBJECTS. COMBINED THAT  IT WAS ACTUALLY CREATED FROM A BASIC A-8 CONFIGURATION WITH THE COLUMN WHEEL LEFT OUT WITH PURPOSE. SO, NOT ONLY IS IT RARE, IT IS ALSO A MYSTERY THAT WILL COME TO LIGHT ONE DAY.

 

 

 

197 INFANTRY BDE

The 197th Infantry Brigade was an Infantry brigade of the United States Army. The brigade’s mission was to “access and train Soldiers and Infantry leaders, demonstrate Infantry tactics, provide subject matter expertise, develop doctrine and support the USAIS in order to provide the army with soldiers and leaders prepared to fight and win

The unit mission was not only support to the Infantry School but also to specialize in desert, jungle and urban warfare. The 197th Infantry Brigade was a stand alone heavy brigade, which during the Gulf War (Desert Storm) was attached to the 24th Infantry Division out of Fort Stewart, Georgia as their third brigade. Soldiers in the 197th who are veterans of the Gulf War wear as their combat patch the patch of the 197th, not the 24th.

The 197th was inactivated within months of returning from the war, to be officially reactivated as the 3rd Brigade, 24th Infantry Division.

WITTNAUER
ARTILLERY TIMER

 

A prime focus in 1927 were Aviation watches WITTNAUER and LONGINES both worked with a U.S. Navy officer named Philip Van Horn Weems, whose design for a Second Setting Watch included an inner, rotating dial. The aviator would move the dial until he heard a time-tone on his radio, thus capturing any deviations from Greenwich Civil Time.

 

Another influence on Wittnauer timepieces of this era was Wittnauer watchmaker John Heinmuller, who was the official timekeeper of the U.S. National Aeronautical Association and became one of the country’s leading authorities on U.S. air mail stamps. Because of all this attention to navigation wristwatches and devices, Clarence D. Chamberlin and Charles A. Levine used Wittnauer chronometers for their 1927 Trans-Atlantic flight and Charles Collyer and John Henry Mears used two Wittnauers in 1928 when they famously raced the moon around the earth—they did it in 24 days, beating the moon by 72 hours. Howard Hughes wore Wittnauers in the 1930s/ The depression was the cause of the sale in 1936.

Longines-Wittnauer  provided Wittnauer with contracts for Weems wristwatches, as well as compasses and timers, during World War II.

 

 

WITTNAUER GRIDIRON

THIS PARTICULAR GRIDIRON WITTNAUER WAS DEVELOPED AS A SPORTS TIMER WHEN WWII BROKE OUT. WITTNAUER WOULD HAVE OVER 500,000 TIMERS, WATCHES, COMPASSES AND OTHER TIMING DEVICES BEING UTILIZED BY US FORCES –NOTE: BRITISH & OTHER FORCES ALSO UTILIZED WITTNAUER PRODUCTS. THIS PARTICULAR WITTY HAS PROVIDENCE. IT IS LOADED FOR BEAR WITH TRENCH ART: FROM THE THE RIM TO THE CASE BACK ARE INSCRIPTIONS AND DATES. AND THEN THERE IS THE  CREST.DI FOR THE 2ND ARMORED DIVISION!

The 2nd Armored Division (“Hell on Wheels”) was an armored division of the United States Army. The division played an important role during World War II in the invasions of North Africa and Sicily and the liberation of France, Belgium, and the Netherlands and the invasion of Germany. During the Cold War, the division was primarily based at Fort Hood, Texas, and had a reinforced brigade forward stationed in West Germany. After participation in the Persian Gulf War, the division was inactivated in 1995.

THIS TIMER HAS REFERENCES TO BOTH THE 2ND AND 3RD DIVISIONS. THE CASE BACK HAS A DI WITH THE THIRD’S MOTTO “HELL ON WHEELS. THE INCLUDED 3RD DIVISION CHALLENGE COIN IS FROM
DESERT STORM.

The 3rd -aka “Third Herd”- and the 2nd -aka “Hell on Wheels”- were armored Division of the United States Army organized as “heavy” armored divisions.

As a “heavy” division, they possessed two armored regiments. The 3rd division’s core units were the 36th Armored Infantry Regiment, the 32nd Armored Regiment, the 33rd Armored
Regiment, the 23rd Armored Engineer Battalion, the 83rd Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, and the 143rd Armored Signal Company.

As with most American divisions in World War II, they suffered heavy casualties, and by the end of the war, replacement troops often outnumbered veterans in the line units.

[2nd Brigade:

HHC, 2nd Brigade
3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment
4th Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment
4th Battalion, 18th Infantry Regiment]

Desert Storm

In response to the changing cold war scenario, 3AD was instructed to begin selective standing down of various Division elements during the summer of 1990. Some units, for
example 3-5 ADA Battalion had turned in equipment or cross-leveled with other 3AD units by August 1990, when momentous events in the Middle East developed. That month, Iraq
invaded Kuwait, and soon after, President George H. W. Bush committed U.S. troops to the theater, first to defend Saudi Arabia, and then to eject Iraqi troops from Kuwait.
Deployment of advance elements of 3AD began in December, with the remaining deploying units arriving by January. Units that had drawn down were replaced or augmented back to
full strength. As an example, 3-5 ADA was replaced by the 8th Infantry Division’s 5-3 ADA Battalion. Other units were attached to 3AD to bring it up to, and even beyond, full
strength.

The Third Herd was first activated in 1941, and was active in the European Theater of World War II. The division was stationed in West Germany for much of the Cold War, and
participated in the Persian Gulf War.

On 17 January 1992 in Germany, the division ceased operations; in October 1992 it was formally deactivated as part of a general drawing down of forces at the end of the Cold
War.

LEMANIA PRECISTA

NAVAL MILITARY TIMER

 

There is no doubt this is a  British military timer made by one of the greatest Chronograph – Complicated watch-movement companies in the world. Through my experience and knowledge of timers, and what they were made to time, I can see many events this fine timer could operate in. Yet we know that most timers like this one were utilized in submarine warfare; dating to the first world war. And, though most offensive & defensive systems in military use today are computerized, timers like this one still hold their own. Though, these were issued from the late 1960′ to Desert Storm in 1991.

 

Every revolution of this timer equals 6 seconds/5000 yards, the A-8 was 10 seconds, so this timer is faster yet as accurate as the vaunted A-8.  Why 6 seconds? 

I DISCOVERED  SEVERAL OF THESE LEMANIA TIMERS FROM £185.00  TO £345.00 OR BEST OFFER ON EBAY.

According to the information from those offers, this LEMANIA was designed for the Royal Navy.

The explanation of the rapid 6 second per revolution has to do with underwater sound. Under water sound travels at approx. 1450 to 1500 m/s or (1586 to 1640 yards/s). Aping reflecting from a target at 1600 yards would return in approx. 2 seconds. It is stated this LEMANIA was utilized  by asdic/sonar operators on destroyers to find subs and on subs to find prey, and evade destroyers.

 

We know that in 1990, the Senior British Royal Naval Officer in the Middle East was Captain Anthony McEwen (Flag HMS York), then Commodore Paul Haddocks, and finally Commodore Christopher Craig, on HMS Brave and HMS London.

 

We also know that he Royal Navy made a significant contribution to Allied efforts in the early stages of the war. In particular, Royal Navy Westland Lynx helicopters were responsible for the destruction of almost the entire Iraqi Navy. Additionally, Royal Navy minehunters cleared Iraqi mines near the Kuwaiti coast, allowing the US battleships Wisconsin and Missouri to move in close enough to launch devastating bombardments against Iraqi ground forces. HMS Gloucester intercepted an Iraqi Silkworm Missile bound for the US Battleships. The date of this timer coincides with the Royal Navy operations. I have yet to discover timers with dates past the nineties.

****AIR SPEED

 

Air speed indicators on WWII aircraft were controlled by air being forced into the air speed indicator as you flew your plane. The problem was as you gained altitude less and less air entered the device and there was always cross winds straight winds so your speed, relative to the ground, was going to be either lower or higher depending on whether you are flying into the wind or with the wind. Ground speed was required to precisely know your air speed which was important of you wanted to bomb a target, drop men from the plane, to precisely time your flight.. and navigate properly.

 

To figure your actual ground-speed and compare it to the airspeed indicator and then adjust your navigation calculations accordingly, the pilot or navigator would pick out, say, a pair of known parallel roads or other landmarks that were already distance measured,  they would then click the A-8 10 second timer on at the first mark then off at the second. Using the elapsed time along with calculations they could figure their actual ground speed and adjust instruments.
