THE FIRST TRUE AFFORDABLE AVIATORS WATCH 

The First True Aviators Watch Designed By A Pilot Specifically For Pilots By An Industry Great That Laid The Ground Work For Both The Linburgh Hour Angle Watch And Glycine Airman Was The Longine Weems…. …

http://www.weems-plath.com/images/content-page-photos/weems-photo.jpg

In 1927 – The Year Lindbergh Crossed The Atlantic. Captain Philip Van Horn Weems (1889-1979) Designed The “Weems System Of Navigation” His “System” Employed A Modified Sextant Taking Two “Shots” Of The Sun, Allied To An Accurate Time Reading From His “Second Setting Watch”, Followed By Making Reference To The Tables In The Line Of Positions Book.

A FEW OF ROCKS WEEMS RESTORATIONS

 

 

In 1929,Captain Philip Van Horn Weems DESIGNED A Second Setting Watch Watch That Used A Rotating Exterior Bezel Or Center Dial With Minutes/Seconds Chapter Ring To Synchronize The Watch To The Second Using The Radio Time Signal Without Adjusting The Hands AND Incorporated A Second “Locking” Crown That Allowed The User To Lock Down The Rotating Bezel At The Precise Timing On The Bezel.

IMG_1067.JPG (86406 bytes)

*****************************

ok. seems there are always someone that is jealous that we have 150,000 images of our completed restores online; that rock began trading vintage watches in 1992 on the polygon jeweler to jeweler

There there are several versions of the Weems. The first did not have a  patent. the patent was added i believe in 1935.

To Demonstrate Why YOu Should Invest W/Us

Please Select This Link To Our
Basic Aviator History

PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY OFFER OUR
PRODUCT ONLINE WITH EBAY
The Link Above Has No Links Offers Just History

GETTING BACK TO VERSIONS. THERE ARE NO WRITING ON DIA VERSION  WHICH IS OFFICIAL US MILITARY RULES –YES WE HAVE MANY DOCUMENTS INCLUDING THE EXPLAINATION FOR THIS RULE.

THEN THERE ARE THE 1936 VERSION WITH THE OFFICIAL PATENT.

THEN THERE IS THE AC VERSION THAT WAS CREATED IN THE 1940’S. AS YOU WILL SEE THROUGH OUR FREE PDF, AM “AC”, SINAGE ON BACK WITH  THE REGULAR A-11 SPECS .

SOME OF THESE HAVE A ARMY AIR CORPS SIGNATURE ON THE SWEEPS HOLD DOWN BRIDGE.

THEN, LITTLE DO THESE PEOPLE WHOM BOMBARD ME WITH ENDLESS HATE IN  QUESTIONING OF WHAT I AM OFFERRING, EVEN CAUSING HEADACHES WITH LISTINGS, THERE WERE 200 FREE 1934/35 WEEMS THAT WERE PROVIDED FREELY WHEN THE ARMY AIRCORPS HAD A TERRIFIC PROBLEM WITH NAVIGATION. THESE 200 WERE SHIPPED TO TWO BASES. THEN. IN THE LATE PART OF 1935 EARLY 1936, 1800 MORE WERE PURCHASED FOR THE US ARMY AIR CORPS. THESE WERE NOT STAMPED, SIGNED OR GIVEN A MILITARY NUMBER. LIKE A-7  A-11  A-17  3118B

IN FACT, THE COSTLY LARGE A-7 LONGINES –I HAVE PIC BELOW- NAVIGATION WATCH WAS ENDED DURING THIS TIME. IT WAS REPLACED WITH WEEMS. NO NUMBER UNTIL 1940!!!! WHICH IT JOINED THE A-11 CLASS UNTIL LONGINES PRODUCED THE STRAIGHT LONGINES A-11. A HACKING LONGINES ON THE LARGE SIDE–COMPARED WITH ELGIN WATHAM BULOVA AND WEEMS.

His “System” Then Employed A Modified Sextant Taking Two “Shots” Of The Sun, Allied To An Accurate Time Reading From His “Second Setting Watch”, Followed By Making Reference To The Tables In The Line Of Positions Book.

(The Line Of Position Book Provided Extensive Charts With Precalculated Positions; Allowing A Pilot To Look Up The Positions Quickly And Easily, Instead Of Performing The Complicated Calculations Himself.)

IMG_1075.JPG (93127 bytes)

*******************************************

In 1929, in partnership with Longines, Weems registered a patent for his design. Longines produced the original 28mm “WEEMS” with locking crown at 2 position and added a 30mm larger model with locking crown at 4 position., [thus the Weems came in two sizes. one the same size as the decade later U.S. GOV MIL WWII A-11 PILOTS WATCH]

A SCREW IN POST

THE ACTUAL THREADED HOLE IN CASE WAS NOT TOUCHED

IMG_1074.JPG (87760 bytes)

*****************************************

The Weems System Along With His Invention Of The Second Setting Watch Enabled Pilots And Navigators To Read Truly Accurate Time Directly From The Watch Face During An Era When Chronometrical Precision Was Costly And Rare. Especially With The Help Of A Radio Signal….

 

IMG_1007.JPG (137509 bytes)

Unless Your Watch Had A Hacking Seconds-Hand, Like The WWII A-11 Pilots Watch W/Hack [Introduced Ten Years AFTER THE WEEMS Later] along With Precise Timekeeping And You’HAVE Set Your Watch Correctly In The First Place, You Can Be Out By A Few Seconds At Any Given Time And A Few Seconds At High Air Speeds Over Great Distances Can Prove Dangerous, If Not Fatal.
