While Japan provided SEIKOSHA made, SWISS made & Hybrid [Japan Case/Dial, w/Swiss and Japanese Movement] watches, timers, ships watches and chronographs in limited numbers compared with total amount of forces, many watches we discover that survived the napalm fire bombing, and atomic bombs and bonzai charges in the air and on the land, and the sinking of the ships and subs, were those supplied by the individual soldier and officer. Many of the watches and timers that survived were either captured or sold to the occupation forces such as the 11th Airborne and 8th Army.

A HISTORY OF AVIATORS WATCHES

TO THE RIGHT IS A 1916-18 RED CROSS SEIKOSHA WATCH. DURING WWI, JAPAN HAD ALLIED HER SELF WITH THE US AND WESTERN POWERS. HER “JOB” WAS PRODUCTION OF WAR MATERIALS AND THE SUPPLY OF NURSES FOR THE BATTLE FIELDS OF FRANCE, THE MOVEMENT IS ASSIGNED SEIKOSHA COPY OF A SWISS IMPERIAL.

IMG_9528.jpg (5712 bytes)

IMG_4692.JPG (109143 bytes)

NOTE THE STYLE OF THE STRAPS AS WELL AS THE OUTER CASING SYSTEM, . DO TO THE FACT MOST JAPANESE HAVE SMALLER WRISTS THEN WHAT WAS STANDARD, THESE ARE IN FACT AN IMPORTANT ITEM FOR ALL PERIOD JAPANESE WATCHES.

THE NAMES OF THE MODELS DURING THE PERIOD FROM 1916 THROUGH 194, WERE NAMES THAT PROMOTED THE WILL AND POWER OF THE IMPERIAL NATION. IN FACT, THIS RESTORE IS A SEIKOSHA NATION MODEL WITH A STYLIZED BEZEL

IMG_8794.JPG (123831 bytes)

THIS EARLY 1940 SEIKOSHA “H2” [WATER PROOF] TIMER IS/WAS SIGNED SEIKOSHA ON THE DIAL AND THE MOVEMENT. YET. IN IT’S ENTIRETY IT WAS AND IS SWISS MADE. THE DIALS WERE DELIVERED UNSIGNED EXCEPT FOR THE “H” OVER “2”,. CASE WAS SERIALIZED IN EUROPE, BUT SIGNED BY SEIKOSHA. .
ANOTHER COOL STRAP TRULY MAKES THIS SEIKOSHA DOUBLE CASED MILITARY WATCH WITH SEIKOSHA SWISS BAR FINISHED MOVEMENT

se-2.jpg (62572 bytes)

IMG_8657.JPG (89257 bytes)

A FEW MILLION TIMERS WERE MADE BY SEIKOSHA. CASES WERE USUALLY NICKEL AND SIGNED SKS. THE MOVEMENTS WERE, ACCORDINGLY BY DATE OF PRODUCTION, ALL SWISS OR AMERICAN MOVEMENTS; THEN COPIED SWISS AND AMERICAN, THEN JAPANESE MADE.

NOW, I WOULD ASSUME THAT THE JAPANESE USED EBAUCHES -MOVEMENTS WITHOUT THE TRAIN-, , BUT OF EVERY 100 UNITS, ONLY 5 COULD BE SO. NOTE THE SWISS BARS ON THIS BEAUTY,

IMG_8644.JPG (124937 bytes)

IMG_3218.JPG (91327 bytes)

HERE IS A CENTER BLOOD RED SUN IMPERIAL WITH SUPER RARE SWEEP SECONDS . THE IMPERIAL HAD A FEW MOVEMENTS. NONE WERE AMERICAN. RATHER AN IMPERIAL WATCH CO MOVEMENT OR ONE OF SEVERAL SEIKOSHA “IMPERIAL” MOVEMENTS. ONLY THE SWISS IMPERIAL HAD SWEEPS!

THIS ONE IS SO DOGON RARE. IT IS AN IMPERIAL WWII HACKED CENTER SWEEP SECONDS MOVEMENT. 15 JEWELS, AND, WHAT WAS IN IT’S TIME, THE RAREST SHOCK ABSORBER SYSTEM.

THIS HAPPENS TO BE PROOF THAT WATCHES FROM THE WWI ERA TO THE 1930’S IMPERIAL PERIOD WERE UTILIZED IN WWII. A WATCH WAS AN EXPENSIVE POSSESSION. THEY WERE HANDED DOWN. THIS BEAUTY HAS A 1942 STRAP, A EARLY 1920’S POCKET WATCH WITH WIRE LUGS AND A 1935 MILITARY COMPASS

WITH TRENCH ART CASE BACK

I HAVE RESTORED A FEW THOUSAND JAPANESE 1915 THROUGH 1945 WATCHES. FROM THE HATTORI CASED SWISS TO THE HYBRIDS TO THE TOTALLY SEIKOSHA DESIGNED AND BUILT–NOTE: DOES NOT INCLUDE THE AFTER WAR TO PRESENT.

THIS WAS AN OFFICERS SEIKOSHA WITH SEIKOSHA 7 JEWEL MOVEMENT. THE 7 JEWELS ARE FOR THE ESCAPEMENT, 4 FOR PALLET/PALLET FORK, 2 FOR BALANCE, 1 FOR ROLLER JEWEL. WHY OFFICERS. NOTE THE SILVER COMPASS .. TOP OF THE LINE..

90% OF THESE WATCHES ARE DOUBLE CASED.THIS ONE WITH CATHEDRAL STYLE ILLUMINATED HANDS ARE PREMIUM WATCHES, NOTE THE RED 24HR AND THE RAISED AND OUTLINED ILLUMINATED NUMERALS.

ANOTHER RARE MODEL. I AM NOT STATING THEY “WERE” RARE, ONLY THAT THEY ARE NOW RARE. THOSE WITH THE RED 24HR TIME,

ANOTHER RED SUN. THIS HAS THE FIRST CLASS OUTER CHAPTER OF A DIFFERENT COLOR,

SEIKOSHA DELIKA 1923/1926 WITH THE MOST AMAZING SEIKOSHA DIAL -RESTORED OF COURSE– ANOTHER WITH RADIUM REMOVED & LUMINOVA UTILIZED. NOTE THE 24HR DIAL AND ORIGINAL BLACK MOON HANDS . THE INFLUENCE WERE TRENCH WATCHES.

IT AMAZES US TO SEE REAL STUFF LIKE THIS KILLER WATCH. AN IMPERIAL. I MEAN A SWISS MADE IMPERIAL MOVEMENT IN A JAPANESE CASE. THE LEATHER STRAP WAS 85 YEARS OLD, TOOK ROCK A WEEK TO RECONDITION & REPAIR. NOT THE COMPASS!

ANOTHER POCKET WATCH WITH RADIUM. OF COURSE ROCK PROFESSIONALLY REMOVED THE DEAD RADIUM AND SUBSTITUTED LUMINOVA. I LIKE TO TECH “WATCHERS” THE FACT THAT GERMANY DID NOT USE RADIUM ON SUBS. THEY USED PHOSPHOROUS ZINC MIX. READ “IRON COFFINS”

NOTE CASE BACK. WHEN COLLECTING THESE RARE AND FINE WATCHES BOTH KOREA AND CHINA PLAYED PROMINENT ROLES

ANOTHER RED SUN SEIKOSHA WITH A SLIGHTLY WIDER STRAP. THE BADGE IS POST WAR, I LIKE THESE WATCHES WITH RED SUNS. YOU CAN TELL THEY WERE ADDED AFTER PRODUCTION BECAUSE BO TWO ARE ALIKE..

HERE WE HAVE A RARE TRIPLE COMBO. IT IS A SEIKOSHA. BUILT POCKET WATCH WITH 24HR DIAL. THE MOVEMENT WAS COPIED FROM AN AMERICAN WALTHAM POCKET WATCH — BUILT ENTIRELY BY SEIKOSHA.

WHAT MAKES THIS AN UNUSUAL PIECE IS THE JAPANESE TOKYO HAND MADE LEATHER CASE. ON THE FRONT SIDE ARE NUMERALS STAMPED AROUND A SMALL OPENING. LIKE THE METAL COBBLERS YET IN LEATHER SO WELL MADE WITH TOP LINE LEATHER, IT SURVIVED 85 YEARS …

NOTE THE SMALL OPENING, JUST ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE HANDS AND THE 24 HR RED CHAPTER CAN BE VIEWED WITH EASE

IMG_1459.JPG (115018 bytes)

WHAT A BEAUTY. DIAL IS AS GREAT AS THOSE I DEMONSTRATED AS TOP LEVEL 28/29MM WITH FANCY DIALS LIKE MOVADO, GALLET, OMEGA, PARA, CONCORD, ORIS, IMPERIAL AND OTHERS.

NOTE THE STEEL BAND, THIS WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT AN AMERICAN STEEL BRACELET WITH A JAPANESE POST WAR NAVY SERVICE BADGE. STUNNING AND RUNNING..

IMG_1469.JPG (98267 bytes)

THE SEIKO AT LEFT HAD A DOUBLE CASE. THE OUTER CASE HAD A 24HR MILITARY BEZEL. YOU WILL FIND SOME LIKE THIS WITH DIALS THAT ARE DIFFERENT. PERSONALIZED. EVEN WITH KANJI, THE RED SUN MATCHED THE RED 13.

THE JAPANESE WERE NO DIFFERENT THAN THE AMERICANS OR BRITISH, THEY SUPPLIED SOME TIME PIECES. THESE WERE IDENTIFIED BY THE DIALS. A STAR FOR THE ARMY, A CHERRY BLOSSOM FOR AIR CREWS, AND AN ANCHOR FOR THE NAVY. THE WATCH AT RIGHT IS A SEIKOSHA WITH A JAPANESE SWISS COPIED MOVEMENT

IMG_1675.JPG (111002 bytes) AS WE SEE THE STAR UNDER THE 12 ABOVE TO THE LEFT IS A NAVY VERSION WITH THE ANCHOR ON THE CASE BACK
NOTE THE NAVAL EMBLEM CONSISTING OF AN ANCHOR, SERIAL AND OUTFIT NUMBER IMG_1676.JPG (106505 bytes)

IN SOME CASES –PUN INTENDED– THE MOVEMENTS WERE ALL SWISS. THE ONE AT LEFT IS A 15J SWISS IWC. IT SEEMED THAT THESE EXTREMELY RARE MODELS ACTUALLY WERE GRAVED OR STAMPED MODELS.
THIS NATION WAS AWESOME, IT WAS SNAPPED UP PRETTY QUICK.NO DOUBT IT WAS WHAT I CALL WAR UPDATED WITH RED 24HR CHAPTER. THE HANDS ARE SPECIAL AS FAR AS SEIKOSHA SEIKO WAS CONCERNED. JUST LOOK AT MOVEMENT…,.

IMG_1822.JPG (119574 bytes)

SIGNED SEIKOSHA 15 JEWELS MEANS THIS WAS TOP WWII MOVEMENT. MOST DO NOT EVEN SAY THEY HAVE A JEWEL LET ALONE 15. WE FIND MOST OF THESE WITH NONE JEWEL TO 7 JEWELER. THIS IS A SWISS MOVEMENT.
THE BACK OF THE CASE IS AWESOME. NOTE THE ENGLISH BONKLIP BRACELET. WHILE THERE MAY HAVE BEEN SOME OF THESE TAKEN FROM POW’s, I BELIEVE IT WAS ADDED LATER.
