In 1929,Captain Philip Van Horn Weems of the U.S. Navy (1889-1979), designed a system for navigation along with a Second Setting Watch watch that used a rotating exterior bezel or center dial with minutes/seconds chapter ring to synchronise the watch to the second using the radio time signal without adjusting the hands, This design incorporated a second “locking” crown that allowed the user to lock down the rotating bezel at the precise timing on the bezel.

Captain Philip Van Horn Weems designed the “Weems System of Navigation” in 1927 – the year Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic. 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. (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.)

Unless your watch had a hacking seconds-hand, [THE A II PILOTS WWII WATCH W/HACK WOULD BE INTRODUCED TEN YEARS LATER] along with precise timekeeping and you’ve set it correctly in the first place, with the help of a radio signal, you can be out by a few seconds at any given time. And a few seconds at air speeds and over great distances can prove dangerous, if not fatal.

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 chronometric precision was cotly and rare.

In 1929, in partnership with Longines, Weems registered a patent for this design. Longines produced the original “WEEMS” with locking crown 2 position [same size as U.S. GOV MIL WWII A-II PILOTS WATCH].and added the larger model with locking crown at 4 position,

HOURS ANGLE WATCH
MODERN VERSION

A note of interest, Charles A. Lindbergh, who was a pupil of Weems, used the concept as an additional feature in his Hour Angle Watch. This patent was registered in 1935.

NOTE THE PUSHER CAPS. THEY ARE REPLACEMENTS. THEY DID NOT COME WITH THIS CASE. IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET NEW ONES. PERIOD. JULESBOREL NOR OTTO FREI DID NOT HAVE THEM.. YOU CAN SEE THEY DO NOT COVER THE PUSHERS.
