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)

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

 I RESTORED THIS TO FULL DIAL RED LINE AT 12, CHAPTERS, LONGINES WEEMS AND PATENT, THE ORIGINAL DIAL HAD NOTHING BUT LONGINES. WHICH WAS THE ONLY LETTERING ALLOWED UNTIL WWII AND ON COMPLETE BAN.

We have 150,000 images of our completed restores online;rock began trading vintage watches in 1992 on the polygon jeweler NETWORKr

We have demonstrated that there are several serious versions of the Weems. The first did not have a  patent. The patent was added in  1936.Weems watches for military had only longines [1935]

GETTING BACK TO VERSIONS. THERE IS NO WRITING ON DIA/DEFENSE VERSIONS  AFTER 1935 – WHICH IS AN OFFICIAL US MILITARY RULE — WE HAVE MANY DOCUMENTS INCLUDING THE EXPLANATION FOR THIS RULE. THEN THERE IS THE 1936 VERSION WITH THE OFFICIAL PATENT, LONGINES AND WEEMS ON DIAL

THERE IS THE AC VERSION THAT WAS CREATED IN THE 1940’S. IT IS THE A-11 VERSION. PROBLEM WAS THE WEEMS WAS OUT CLASSED BY THE BIG 3, BULOVA, ELGIN, WALTHAM A-11. AS YOU WILL SEE THROUGH OUR FREE PDF, AM “AC”, SIGNAGE ON BACK WITH  THE REGULAR A-11 SPECS . BUT NOT MANY DUE TO THE FACT THE DIAL DID NOT MEET SPECS AND OTHER CAUSES.

THERE WERE 200 1935 WEEMS THAT WERE PROVIDED FREELY WHEN THE ARMY AIR CORPS HAD A TERRIFIC PROBLEM WITH NAVIGATION PROBLEMS. THESE 200 WERE SHIPPED TO TWO BASES. THEN, IN 1936, 1800  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.

THIS ORIGINAL WEEMS PURCHASED ON EBAY IN FEBRUARY 2015
HAD A MOVEMENT AS BAD AS THE CASE
THE PLAIN DIAL TOOK 1 WEEK ON AND OFF TO RESTORE
NOTE BELOW PICTURE OF THE LONGINES I AM OFFERING
IT HAS NO CHAPTER NO RED LINE AT 12 NO WEEMS.

LATER, IN WWII, ALL WATCHES WOULD NEVER EVER HAVE MAKERS NAME
OR PATENT OR ANYTHING BUT BASICS.
THAT CARRIED THROUGH KOREA AND VIETNAM

 

THE LONGINES WEEMS BEGAN ITS JOURNEY IN 1929.

FROM 1930 THROUGH 1935, THE DIAL WAS BARE OF CHAPTERS OR A PATENT NUMBER. THEY WERE SIGNED EITHER LONGINES AT TOP WITH WEEMS UNDER THE LONGINES, OR JUST LONGINES [MILITARY].

LONGINES HAD PRODUCED THE A-7 AVIGATION [NAVIGATION/AVIATION] WHICH WAS A DUAL UPPER LOWER ROUND REGISTERS [SECONDS/ROTATIONS] , AN HOUR AND MINUTE HAND AND SWEEPS SECONDS POCKET CONVERSION TO WRIST. A BUTTON IN THE CENTER OF CROWN CONTROLLED THE TIMING. BUT, BY 1934, THE US ARMY AIR CORPS WERE STILL HAVING NAVIGATION ISSUES. PROOF CAN BE FOUND WITH EASE. SO, THE US MILITARY CEASED INVESTING IN THE EXPENSIVE A-7. THESE ARE EXTREMELY RARE.

IN 1935, WEEMS CONTACTED THE SECRETARY OF WAR TO OFFER 200 WEEMS HACKING PILOTS WATCHES, AND AN OFFER TO ASSIST IN THE AIR FORCE NAVIGATION.

ONLY THE WORD LONGINES WAS ON DIAL. THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT THE PATENT WAS NOT ISSUED YET AND THOSE FIRST USED IN THE US MILITARY BEFORE WWII WERE SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED THAT WAY-EVEN THE FREE WEEMS IN 1935

 

 US-ARMY-WEEMS.jpg (121456 bytes)

THE 1935 WEEMS THAT WERE OFFERED TO THE US MILITARY ARMY AIR CORPS HAD NO PATENT [NOT UNTIL 1936] ON THE DIAL. THE DIALS WERE SIMPLE WITH ONLY LONGINES AT TOP. THE SCREW DOWN CROWN LOCK FOR BEZEL WAS AT 2 MARKER AND CASE WAS 28MM. NOTE ABOVE. I DECIDED TO RESTORE THE DIAL TO 1936 WITH PATENT AND CHAPTERS WITH RED 12 LINE. REASON? IT IS MOST AWESOME. 1800 ADDITIONAL UNITS WERE PURCHASED.

BY WWII, THE US MILITARY PROVIDED THE SPECS [1940] FOR A NEW HACKING PILOTS WATCH. DESIGNATED THE A-11, BULOVA, WALTHAM, ELGIN, AND LONGINES WERE THE FIRST SELECTED TO PRODUCE AN A-11. KEY TO THIS CONTRACT WAS THE FACT EACH MAKER COULD PRODUCE THEIR OWN MOVEMENT AND CASE; AS LONG AS IT MET THE BASIC FEATURES SUCH AS JEWEL COUNT, HACKING LEVERS, AND THE DIALS WERE UNIFORM.

ONLY A SMALL [COMPARED TO THE OTHER MAKERS] ORDER WAS PURCHASED OF THE WEEMS. THE AIR CORPS WERE STRINGENT AND THE LONGINES WEEMS WATCHES DID NOT HAVE WHAT WAS REQUIRED, NAMELY A BLACK DIAL WITH INDICES AND LAYOUT  THAT MET THE SPECS. THUS ONLY A FEW WEEMS A-II WERE PURCHASED. THESE WOULD HAVE A “US ARMY” SIGNED SWEEPS PINION BRIDGE.

LIKE THE A-7 AND THE MILITARY, LONGINES WOULD PUT THE WEEMS TO THE SIDE AND MANUFACTURE A LARGE –COMPARED TO OTHERS- LONGINES HACKING MILITARY WATCH –I AM RESTORING 3 – AND Jaeger LeCoultre WOULD ALSO PRODUCE THE SAME.

LONGINES CAME OUT WITH A 30MM VERSION [STANDARD  WWII] WITH LOCK CROWN AT 4 POSITION AT BOTTOM

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 Pre-calculated Positions; Allowing A Pilot To Look Up The Positions Quickly And Easily, Instead Of Performing The Complicated Calculations Himself.)

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

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]

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

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.
