WATCH CASES. THIS RIGOROUS PROCESS INCLUDES THE USE OF SEVERAL
TYPES OF ROUGE . ONE HAS TO “FEEL” THE PIECE TO GET IT RIGHT. THAT MEANS USING
MY HANDS. WHEN YOU COMBINE THE EXTREME TEMPERATURES AND THE ROUGE, THE DEPOSITS ON MY

PHOTOS ABOVE ARE DEMONSTRATIONS OF

THE PHOTO TO LEFT IS A DIAL RESTORE FOR A VINTAGE OMEGA PHOTO IN
CENTER IS AN ALPINA TOTAL RESTORE PHOTO TO THE RIGHT IS AN ELGIN REVERSE INVERTED DIAL

WWI-1919-DRIVERS-AIRCORP-MILITARY–REVERSE/

INVERTED-DIAL-POCKET/CAR/PLANE-WATCH

INVERTED dials were originally developed to enable
owners of cars, trucks and airplanes/areoplanes to convert pocket watches into dash
clocks.

The inverted dial positioned the winding stem at the
bottom, making is convenient to wind, and to some what protect the watch from soil, dirt
water.

Those watches with sub-seconds would mean the
register would be at the top making it easier to view more precisely and time more
precisely.

By 1908, speedometer companies were producing and
marketing clocks as after-market accessories.

In 1911 the first dash board Chronograph was
patented by Heuer. It had it’s crown UP.

Between In 1912- 1925, Phinney-Walker and Waltham
made available car clocks that wound from the front rim of the clock and eight day clocks.
with winding from bottom. [ Jaeger & Waltham made eight day watches with inverted
dials].

USAGE

During its day, the reverse/inverted dial was
popular among military personal, private drivers, pilots, race car drivers, and many
others who required an easy access dash mounted watch/clock device .

MILITARY

I have seen WWI photos of men wearing ELGIN
reverse/inverted dial pocket watches on LANYARDS around their necks. And I have overhauled
several ELGIN 15j inverted dial pocket watches with long loop-over-loop leather “belt
fob”s. I have worked on some Japanese and German inverted dial military pocket
watches; including two Japanese ELGINS! And Waltham was extremely popular in Japan since
1914.

AIRCRAFT

Following World War I, the United States was swamped
with aviators who invested in war-surplus aircraft. These flyers earned income with
barnstorming campaigns and by performing aerobatic maneuvers at events. Many of these
flyers would EVENTUALLY join various commercial ventures.

In 1918, the United States Postal Service received
financing from Congress to begin experimenting with air mail service using Curtiss Jenny
aircraft procured by the United States Army Air Service. And in 1919 Chalk’s International
Airlines began a service between Miami and Bimini in the Bahamas.

CONCLUSION

THIS BEAUTY IS A DATED 1925/1926 WALTHAM 8 DAY WITH
INVERTED AND ILLUMINATED DIAL. WITH SCREW DOWN BEZEL AND SNAP BACK CASE. NEW GLASS CRYSTAL
AND TOTAL AWESOME RESTORE. DIAL WAS NOT REFINISHED BUT WAS RE-ILLUMINATED AND TOUCHED UP.
HANDS RESTORED. MOVEMENT SERVICED AND CASE BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE.
