ONE THE DIAL:

THERE ARE REASONS WHY THE DIAL ON THE ONE ABOVBE IS BLANK EXCEPT FOR LONGINES. 1929/30 WAS THE LAUNCH DATE. BY 1935 . DIALS HAD LONGINES WEEMS. THE PATENT IN 1935 MEANT 1936/37 MODELS WOULD HAVE   LONGINES WEEMS & THE FAMILIAR PATENT NUMBER.

WHEN,  IN WWII, THE US PLACED THE SPECS FOR THE A-11 AND OTHER MILWATCHES. IT WAS STATED THAT NO BRAND NAMES ON THE DIALS WOULD BE PERMITTED.  WEEMS, EVER THE SALES MAN, WOULD GET A CONTRACT –A SMALL ONE THAT DID LITTLE TO PROMOTE THE WATCH. THEY WERE INFORMED THAT DIALS HAD TO BE BLANK.  NOTE, VERY FEW US MIL WATCHES EVER HAD THE BRAND NAME ON THE DIAL, SOME DIVES IN VIETNAM PERIOD.

I HAVE A WWII LETTER ON LSYF.COM THAT INFORMS WALTHAM THAT NO ATTER WHAT, NO NAMES UNLESS IN THE CODE ON BACK.

SO. I WAS ASKED WHY I SAY MILITARY WEEMS WHEN IT IS OBVIOUSLY NOT MARKED ON INSIDE BRIGDE -ANSWER BY WEEMS TO NO BRAND– WELL, AFTER INVESTING I WENT TO A FRIEND, HE HAS TWENTYON ME. 80 YEARS OLD. WE BOTH CONCLUDED THAT THE DIAL WAS KEY. IN 1935, 200 WEEMS ITH NO PATENT OR WEEMS ON DIAL, ONLY, LIKE THE LONGINES A-7, WHICH HAD LONGINES ON50% OF THE WATCHES, WE HAVE FOUND THE 2200 WEEMS HAD JUST LONGINES ONLY ON DIAL. THE 200 HAD JUST LONGINES, THEN, 2000 MORE WERE PURCHSED. 

SO, WHEN I OVERHAULED HER WE ALSO RESTORED THE DIAL WITH PLATES FROM 1937. IT REALY DOES NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WHAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS THE OVER HAUL.

NOTE THE HANDS ARE ORIGINAL BUT NOT IN COLOR. THIS BEAUTY HAD GOLD HANDS. WE LEARNED THAT DUE TO THE SIZE OF DIAL PILOTS WOULD HAVE THEIR JEWELER/ WATCH MAKER COLOR THE HANDS WITH THREE COLORS. IT MADE VISUALS ON THE “FLY” –PUN INTENDED– FANTASTIC.IF YOU WANT VBLACK ODR GOLD LETME KNOW BEFORE YOU ONVEST.

[NOTE ROCK HAS THOUSANDS OF HANDS]
ROCK CHOSE A EARLY STYLE OF HANDS
MANY PILOTS WERE ABLE TO  MAKE A
QUICK GLANCE AT WATCH AND IT WAS EASY TO READ

THUS. ON THE DATE OF THE BIRTH OF THIS
LONGINES WEEMS, ONLY TWO GENRE INVESTED
IN THIS WATCH. PILOTS AND MILITARY.

***********************************************************************************/

THE WEEMS SIMPLY WAS NOT AN A-11. YOU SEE,  THE A-I1 WAS SIMPLY A HACKING WATCH FOR PIOLTS, NAVIGATIORS, AND, ON ITS WAY TO THE A-17 , AND THEN THE 3118A, A  VIETNAM WAR PILOTS, GROUND FORCES, AND SPECIAL FORCES WATCH [BUILT UNDER DIFFERENT NAMES/STYLES]

VERSION 1 W/TWO CROWNS DIAL LONGINES OR LONGINES WEEMS 1929-1933

VERSION 2 W/TWO CROWNS  JUST LONGINES ON DIAL USED FOR MILITARY 1935/36

VERSION 3 LONGINES/WEEMS + PATENT ON DIAL END OF 1935 TO 1942

VERSION 4  ARMY AIRCORPS A-11 SPEC CONTRACT 1ST HAD MARKED DIAL LAST CLEAN 1942/43

THE WEEMS A-11 ARMY AIRCORPS DID NOT LIVE UP TO SPECS.  WITH IT’S LARGE BEZEL ITS DIAL WAS  SMALL WHEN COMPARED TO THE BEZEL AND DIAL IN THE A-11 BY COMPANIES LIKE BULOVA ELGIM WALTHAM , ETC. ALSO PRICE WAS REDUCED TREMENDOUSLY IN  THE   CHEAPER, STREAM LINED NON BEZEL A-II

VERSIONS 5 IS WHAT WE MAINLY SEE TODAY. THEY HAVE LONGINES,WEEMS AND PATENT ON DIAL. SOME THE 1930’S “CROWNS UP” AND THEN “CROWNS DOWN” AND EVEN  A LARGER CASE VERSION.

FREE HTM ON BASIC HISTORY OF AVIATOR WATCHES
NO ADDS LINKS JUST ANOTHER ITEM TO LEARN FROM

THE WEEMS ON THE OTHER HAND REQUIRED A BOOK AND A TRAINING TO USE/ IT HACKED LIKE THE A-11, BUT THE US MILITARY HAD EXPERIENCE DATING BACK TO 1935 WITH   WEEMS HIMSELF. WEEMS  TOUTED HIS WATCH TO BE THE ANSWER TO A HUGE NAVIGATION PROBLEM IN THE US ARMY AIR CORP. HE REVEN CONTACED THE SEC OF WAR . WEEMS  HAD EVEN TRIED TO TRAIN  Amelia Earhart BEFORE HER LAST DEADLY FLIGHT.*

*COPIES OF LETTERS AT BOTTOM  NOTE THE DATES

THE WEEMS Second Setting Watch ALSO
REQUIRED A SEXTANT FOR CELESTIAL SIGHTINGS.

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.)

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)

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

IMG_0998.JPG (125869 bytes)

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

IMG_1075.JPG (93127 bytes)

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

IMG_1018.JPG (122611 bytes)

IN FACT, THE COSTLY LARGE A-7 LONGINES AT THE TOP. THE VERY FIRST INTERACTIVE PILOTA WRIST WATCH WAS ENDED IN 1934. 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

. IMG_1007.JPG (137509 bytes)

IMG_1075.JPG (93127 bytes)

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

IMG_1065.JPG (170476 bytes)

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

In 1929, in partnership with Longines, Weems registered a patent for his design [APPROVED 1935]. 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]

FOUND ONE THAT MATCHED THE ORIGINAL
MACHINED THE INTERIOR
AND TAP AND DIE 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.
