THIS ESSAY CONCERNS THE INDIAN JAWAN PARA SHOCK MILITARY WATCHES WITH BROAD ARROW

Jawan is a word in Hindi for SOLDIER. Jawan was registered as a trade mark by the ENGLISH ” West End Watch Co” founded by MM. Amstutz and Droz, owner of Alcide Droz & Sons,  in 1886 in “The West End” district of London, West End Watch Co would become a well established trade name for the marketing of time pieces to the British controlled Mid-East and India Civilian and Military market.

By 1914, West End Watch Co were well established and owned the contracts for both the Indian Military and Civil Services markets. With acceptance of the British Military, West End Watch Co produced  solid, well made and cased West End Trench and Pocket Watches for the Military [long tail broad arrow] and the Indian Civil Service [marked C.S. with C-tailed BROAD ARROW].

WEST-END-WATCH--goldsmithworks.jpg (43900 bytes)
HISTORIC EVENTS

West End Watch Company developed the first waterproof pocket watch ever produced: “L’Impermeable” (Displayed at the International Watchmaking Museum of La Chaux-de-Fonds).

During the First World War, a large force of British and Indian soldiers were sent from Bombay to the Persian Gulf to reach Mesopotamia (Iraq). Each received a West End Watch Company watch; marking the first official use by British Forces of a West End “Military” Watch leading to the brand becoming famous among British Enlisted Forces.

In 1917, West End Watch Company changed its name to Société des Montres West End SA and was registered in Geneva. At the same time the sub-brand Lowan was also registered and introduced in England..

In 1934, the Société des Montres West End SA was the first brand to introduce the Incabloc anti-shock system invented by Mr. Braunschweig

Within several years of the end of WWII, West End Watch Company began producing watches in India.

In 1961. ****Hindustan Machine Tools [HMT 1953] set up a watch division utilizing equipment and movements from West End Watch co, with assistance from citizen watch company, to  produce watches, including the Jawan, a military issue watch under the HMT logo utilizing the long shaft version of the English Broad Arrow.

***Conviently Named So To Continue To Utilize The British Military “HMT” –which stood for “HIS MAJESTY’S TROOPS”! on the dial!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jawan
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jawa (from Persian Jawan or Javan, meaning “young”) refers to a young man in Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, and Punjabi. In the Indian subcontinent, it has additionally taken on the reference to an infantryman, and is used in much the same meaning as soldier in English. This term is specific to all ranks below that of a Commissioned Officer, primarily used in the armed forces of India and Pakistan.

THIS JAWAN ALEGEDLY BELONGED TO AN Australian Special Forces member who served in Vietnam in 1968./69.

IMG_8370.JPG (131761 bytes)

BEFORE THE USA SENT THE FIRST GREEN BERET TO VIETNAM, THEY FIRST WENT TO AUSTRALIA TO RECEIVE TRAINING FROM THE AUSSIE SPECIAL FORCES IN GUERILLA WAR FARE.

IMG_8375.JPG (163313 bytes)

THERE WERE TWO COUNTRIES THAT THE VIET CONG FEARED THE MOST, THE SOUTH KOREANS AND THE AUSTRALIANS. WHERE EVER THE KOREANS WERE BASED, WAS THE PLACE THAT HAD THE LEAST CONTACT WITH THE VIRT CONG.

 IMG_8362.JPG (118342 bytes)

WHETHER THE RUMORS OF IN COUNTRY AUSTRALIAN SPECIAL FORCES WEARING LEATHER STRING WITH VIET CONG EARS ATTACHED WERE TRUE OR FALSE, THE FACT THAT THE RUMOR PERSISTED WAS ENOUGH TO SPARK FEAR IN THE VIET CONG.

IMG_8354.JPG (132871 bytes)

ON THE OTHER HAND, THE RUMORS OF THE SOUTH KOREANS MURDERING THOSE SUSPECTED OF COLUSION WITH THE CONG WERE IN FACT TRUE. MASS KILLINGS OF VIETNAMESE “CIVILLIANS” BY SOUTH KOREAN TROOPS WAS A FACT AND THEY TERRORIZED THE CONG.

IMG_8357.JPG (162177 bytes)

THUS, WHILE THIS TIME PIECE WAS INDIAN MADE WITH AN INDIAN BRITISH BROAD ARROW, IT WAS RECOVERED IN VIETNAM AND THE ESTATE STATED IT WAS AUSSIE….

IMG_8358.JPG (105137 bytes)

I decided to remove this JAWAN from my safe after a Patron offered more cash for   the Zodiac Sea Wolf  BY ITSELF, RATHER THAN MOUNTED ON THE CUFF STRAP WITH IN COUNTRY ZIPPO LIGHTER. WE HAVE SINCE PLACED A WHITE DIALS SEA WOLF ON THE CUFF AND THAT LEFT AN AWESOME HMT. THUS THIS OFFER

IMG_8374.JPG (167182 bytes)

I have not restored the dial. The illumination WAS Radium, IT IS NOW AF LUMINOVA, A ZINC AND PHOSPHORUS MIXTURE. .

IMG_8359.JPG (108293 bytes)

I did invest in another JAWAN, same date, to get parts for the movement -this movement work does not change the fact it is original. Unless a complete different movement is installed, the Servicing and/or Movement repairs do not alter it’s ORIGINAL STATURE and NATURE.

THE FIRST GREEN BERET “ADVISORS” WHO SERVED IN VIETNAM WERE TRAINED IN GUERRILLA WARFARE BY THE AUSTRALIAN SPECIAL FORCES.  BESIDES THE US FORCES, AUSTRALIAN SAS MEMBERS WERE THE FIRST COVERT OPERATIVES IN THE EARLY 1960’S.  IN FACT, AS I STATED, THE AUSTRALIAN SAS WOULD BECOME AS FEARED BY THE VIET CONG AS THE US NAVY SEALS WOULD IN THE LATE 1960’S. BOUNTIES WERE PLACED FOR THEIR DEATH OR CAPTURE.

Aus-sasr_svg.png (17525 bytes)

Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War began with briefly TRAINING US SPECIAL FORCES. In 1962, 30 Australian Military Advisors were stationed in Vietnam. Over the decade that number grew to 7,672.   Australian troops that deployed to South Vietnam included  ground forces, support troops and the SAS [special forces].
IMG_8361.JPG (103501 bytes)

The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest war only recently surpassed by Australia’s long term commitment of combat forces in Afghanistan. Initially enjoying broad support due to concerns about the spread of communism in Southeast Asia, controversy soon developed into an anti-war movement in response to Australia’s draft and the same conceived evils as those viewed in the USA. 

IMG_5875.JPG (157420 bytes)
BIEN HOA 1969 SERVICE NUMBER??

From 1966 to 1971 three “sabre” squadrons of the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) completed two tours of Vietnam. The SAS was based at Nui Dat where it acted as the “eyes and the ears” of the 1st Australian Task Force (1ATF) and operated throughout Phuoc Tuy province as well as in Bien Hoa, Long Khanh, and Binh Tuy provinces.

IMG_8356.JPG (134116 bytes)

SAS personnel were highly trained and their role in Vietnam varied from conducting reconnaissance patrols and observing enemy movement to offensive operations deep in enemy territory. The SAS had the highest “kill” ratio of any Australian unit in Vietnam. The Australian SAS operated closely with the New Zealand SAS and New Zealand SAS soldiers were attached to each Australian squadron.

SAS PATROL VIETNAM

The withdrawal of Australia’s forces from South Vietnam began in November 1970 when 8 RAR completed its tour of duty and was not replaced.

IMG_8353.JPG (120388 bytes)

A phased withdrawal followed, and by 11 January 1973 all Australian involvement in hostilities in Vietnam had ceased and only the Australian Embassy Platoon remained deployed in the country until 1 July 1973.

In April 1975, during the Fall of Saigon, Australian forces were deployed briefly  to evacuate personnel from the Australian embassy.

 

CASE AND MOVEMENT
ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION

SPECIAL FORCES OPERATED WITH ARMY SUPPORT FORCES FROM 1960 THROUGH 1965. WHEN, IN 1964, THE NORTH VIETNAMESE ALLEGEDLY FIRED UPON TWO US SHIPS IN THE GULF OF TONKIN, CREATING THE ALLEGED “GULF OF TONKIN INCIDENT” OF AUGUST 2 & 4 1964, PRESIDENT JOHNSON ESCALATED THE VIETNAM SUPPORT MISSION TO A CONFLICT BY SENDING THE FIRST U.S. GROUND TROOPS TO VIETNAM

ON MARCH 8, 1965, THE FIRST US TROOPS,  3500 U.S. MARINES, ARRIVED IN DA NANG, VIETNAM. .

ROCK HAD THE SEA WOLF PICTURED ABOVE ON THIS STRAP. THE SEA WOLF WAS PURCHASED BY A PATRON LEAVING THIS ENSEMBLE LACKING A WATCH. SEARCHING THROUGH HIS COLLECTION, ROCK CHOSE A WELL WORN YET SEMI-RESTORED [DIAL WAS LEFT AS IS] JAWAN HE PICKED UP IN 1989 FROM AN ESTATE SALE OF AUSTRALIAN MILITARY ARTIFACTS..  

IMG_8355.JPG (133193 bytes)

AS YOU CAN SEE, DIAL WAS CLEANED. BUT THE RADIUM 12 3 6 AND NINE
WERE BADLY “BURNED IN”, COATING WITH LUMINOVA WAS THE ONLY
ANSWER WITHOUT RESTORING THE DIAL COMPLETE. ROCK CHOSE
TO KEEP AS IS. IT SIMPLY ADDS TO THE VALUE AND LOOK
ESPECIALLY WITH THE AGED WIDE CUFF STRAP
AND THE CUSTOM MOUNTED VIETNAM LIGHTER

BACK HOME, HARDLY ANY OF MY FRIENDS OWNED A WATCH LET ALONE WORE ONE EVERY DAY. IN FACT, IF YOU OWNED A WATCH IT WAS FOR DRESS, CHURCH OR NIGHT CLUBS. YET IN THIS POPULAR SCENE IN THE MOVIE “FULL METAL JACKET”  A VIETNAMESE PIMP IS SELLING THE REASONS WHY HIS  “GIRL IS WORTH THE MONEY” HE IS ASKING, WE SEE THAT NEARLY EVERY MEMBER OF THE PLATOON ARE WEARING WATCHES– ONLY ONE LOOKS GOV ISSUE

THE DEER HUNTER

ANYONE WHO WITNESSED “THE DEER HUNTER”..CAN RECALL THE SCENE WHERE ROBERT DI NERO AND CHRISTOPHER WALKEN, AS PRISONERS OF WAR, ARE PULLED FROM THE BAMBOO CAGES BY THE VIET CONG AND FORCED TO “PLAY” RUSSIAN ROULETTE.  THE SCENE INCLUDES THE PILE OF “ITEMS” PLACED ON THE TABLE BY THE BETTING CONG.  YOU SEE A PILE OF OF VIETNAMESE, FRENCH AND AMERICAN CASH AS WELL AS THE GREATEST CURRENCY–  WATCHES REMOVED FROM THE PRIOR/PREVIOUS PRISONERS WHO DIED THE WATCHES ARE OBVIOUSLY SWISS AND AMERICAN.   VIETNAM DID MORE FOR THE WATCH INDUSTRY THAN ALL THREE PRIOR US WARS PUT TOGETHER

IMG_8355.JPG (133193 bytes)

WATCHES BECAME A POPULAR MUST HAVE DURING THE VIETNAM WAR
I CANNOT SAY JUST HOW MUCH THAT MEANT. IT WAS THE ONLY ITEM
BESIDES PLACING A MEDALLION ON YOUR DOG TAG ROPE OR CHAIN
THAT MADE YOU DIFFERENT. THAT REMINDED YOU OF OF THE “WORLD”
THOUSANDS OF YOUNG TROOPS HAD AMAZING CHOICES

FROM 1964 -1972 PRICING CAME DOWN WITH FEATURES GOING UP
OVERSEAS MEANT LOWER PRICES WHETHER ROLEX OR BENRUS
THAN RETAIL PRICE BACK IN THE “WORLD
” IT WAS EASY TO PICK ONE UP AT THE PX-BX OR WHILE ON R&R
OR FROM HUNDREDS OF VIETNAMESE VENDERS FROM SAIGON
NOOKS TO THE KHE SANH HOOKS
THE ONLY ITEM MORE DESIRABLE WERE THE CUSTOMIZED CUT DOWN
SHOT GUNS YOU COULD GET IN AUSTRALIA AND BRING BACK IN COUNTRY. 

BUT TO GET TO AUSTRALIA R&R YOU HAD TO HAVE MORE TIME IN COUNTRY
YOU HAD SAY A DOZEN CHOICES, FOR THE TOP PLACES YOU HAD TO TAKE YOUR R&R LATER IN YOUR DEPLOYMENT.
