THE DIAL WAS ONCE THE EXACT COLOR OF OUR DIAL RESTORATION ANDILLUMINATION DOTS WERE USED. THE HOUR, MINUTE, SUB-SECOND AND COUNTER HANDS ARE CORRECT – SEVERAL VARIATIONS WERE USED. THE CENTER CHRONO-SECONDS HAND SHOULD BE BLACK AND IT SHOULD FOLLOW THE DESIGN OF HOUR & MINUTE HAND. WE SAW ONE SEIKOSHA NAVY AIR CHRONOGRAPH WITH 24 HR MARKERS THAT HAD AN OPEN DIAMOND TIP WITH CLOSED DIAMOND TAIL. AT THE END OF OUR RESTORATION, WE WERE FORCED TO USE A SIMILAR BLACK SWEEPS AND AN ORIGINAL JAPANESE 24HR POCKET WATCH/TIMER DIAL IMPRINTER –TO IMPRINT THE RED 24 HOUR CHAPTER – WHICH PLACED THE “18” BELOW THE CENTER OF THE SUB-SECONDS HAND. OTHER THAN THAT, IT CAME OUT STUNNING!

JAPANESE WWII NAVEL AIR CHRONOGRAPH ON MILITARY WATCH FORUM
Seikosha Cased Longines Chronographs

4TH DOWN
Classic Seikosha Navy Air Chronograph, with 24hour markers.

LONGINES: “We have sent 1 movement alone on the 28th June 1941 to Messrs. Hattori, who were our agents in Japan at that time. It is a movement caliber 18.72 chronograph”

NOTE
I HAVE LONG ASSERTED THAT MANY SIGNED SEIKOSHA MOVEMENTS IN CLOCKS, WATCHES, TIMERS AND CHRONOGRAPHS WERE/ARE IN FACT SWISS OR AMERICAN MOVEMENTS; THAT SEIKOSHA UTILIZED THESE SWISS AND AMERICAN MOVEMENTS, SOME WITH MODS, OTHERS AS THEY WERE.

IN FACT, I RECEIVED ALL KINDS OF NEGATIVE COMMENTS FROM FORUM MEMBERS AND FAMOUS, PUBLISHED MILITARY WATCH BOOK AUTHORS WHEN I WROTE ABOUT THIS FACT 6 YEARS AGO.

THE ABOVE LINK IS JUST ONE OF MANY WRITE UPS THAT HAVE APPEARED DEMONSTRATING THE FACTS AS I WROTE THEM 6 YEARS AGO!

OMG
LOOKS LIKE THIS MOVEMENT WAS ONCE
SUBMERGED HALF IN HALF OUT OF SALT WATER.
IT DEFINITIVELY EXPERIENCED A TOUGH TIME
TO SAY THE LEAST

I RECEIVE HIGHER PRICE WHEN EVER I CAN SHOW WATCHES THAT EXPERIENCED YEARS OF WAR FARE.

THUS WE ATTEMPT TO DUPLICATE WHAT WE SEE AND WHAT WE FINDONLINE AND IN OUR MANY MILITARY RELATED BOOKS [450] WHEN WE RESTORE A WAR TEMPERED TIME PIECE.

THE GREATEST DIFFICULTY WAS THE COLUMN WHEEL MOVEMENT ABOVE IS IT’S TERRIBLE CONDITION. YET, AS TESTAMENT TO IT’S PRECISION PARTS, MATERIALS AND ASSEMBLY, THIS BABY STILL CHUGGED ALONG.

UNLIKE DISCOVERING A PRISTINE EXAMPLE THAT NEVER SAW THE WEAR AND TEAR OF COMBAT, THIS JAPANESE IMPERIAL NAVY PILOTS CHRONOGRAPH COME FROM AN ESTATE THAT HAS AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTION AND INVENTORY OF COMBAT WATCHES.

WATCHES THAT BELONGED TO SOLDIERS, AIRMEN, MEDICS, NURSES, DOCTORS AND OTHER MEN AND WOMAN THAT WERE IN THE THICK OF ACTION FROM WWI THROUGH VIETNAM.

THE MAJORITY CAME FROM BATTLE FIELDS OR PRISONERS OF WAR!

NOW, READ BELOW TO SEE THE BUTTERFLY THAT MORPHED FROM THE WORM!
