MESSAGE TO A 1916 ANNUAL MEETING OF
CLOCK WATCH AND JEWELRY WHOLESALERS

“The public is buying the practical things of life. Nobody can truthfully contend that the watch is a luxury. In these days the watch is as necessary as a hat – more so, in fact. One can catch trains and keep appointments without a hat, but not without a watch.

It is said that one soldier in every four wears a wristlet watch, and the other three mean to get one as soon as they can.

Wristlet watches are not luxuries; wedding-rings are not luxuries. These are the two items jewelers have been selling in the greatest quantities for many months past.”

THe Standard British Trench Watch. IN The Beginning Most Were Not Numeral Illuminated And Had Black Dials With Carthedral Style Illuminated Hands. Then Came The Illuminated Dials. While In The Beginning, Many Trench Watches Were In Fact Converted Ladies Pocket Watches Or Small Mens Pocket Watches. The British Invested in Trench Watches That Were Built As Such. Two Above Are In Fact British Restorations By Rock. In Most Cases –The Pun Is Intended — Look At Your Case Then Match Hallmarks. Remember To Check All Marks, Just A Made In Birmingham Et Al Does Not Mean It Was Even Sold In England. Note. The Westend Trench Watch On Lower Left In Black And Gold.

WEST END TRENCH WWI

http://goldsmithwatchworks.com/JAN-2012/WEST-END-WATCH-O.jpg

The West End Watch Company began there journey in 1886 from “The West End”, a district of the center of London. The market that West End catered to was the British controlled Mid-East and India. By

1914, West End was offering solid, well made and cased Trench and Pocket Watches. Specializing in the Indian Military and Civil Services, West End, with acceptance of the British Military, produced Trench Watches that were marked C.S.for the Civil Service in India and C-tailed BROADARROW-S for Indian Military personal under British control

In 1886, MM. Amstutz and Droz, the owner of Alcide Droz & Sons firm, began the exploitation of the trademark West End Watch Company in the Indian market and developed the first waterproof pocket watch ever produced: “L’Impermeable” (nowadays displayed at the International Watchmaking Museum of La Chaux-de-Fonds).

During the First World War, a large force of British and Indian soldiers was sent from Bombay to the Persian Gulf to reach Mesopotamia (modern-day Iraq). They received West End Watch Company watches.

In 1917, West End Watch Company changed its name to Société des Montres West End SA and was registered in Geneva. At the same time the sub-brand Lowan was also registered.

In 1934, the Société des Montres West End SA was the first brand to introduce the Incabloc anti-shock system invented by Mr. Braunschweig

Or Much Of Her History, The British War Department Supplied Precise Details On All Facets Of Their Times Pieces. Each Model Of Pocket Watch Or Timing Device Was Tested And Then Assigned A Use And Pattern Number And A Broad Arrow Property Mark. From The Invention Of First Usable Ships Chrono And Deck Watch, To The Field Watch, To W.W.I When The Wrist Watch [Trench Watch] Became A War Tool, The Individual Departments Of The British Armed Forces Provided The Specific Requirements For Watches, Timers, Chronos They Each Required And Those Accepted Were Assigned A “Pattern” Number. Thus, Until 1938, All Watches Were Governed By Specific Requirements. From Movements To Cases To Dials, Watches Specifications Were Provided And A “Pattern” Assigned. So, A Pattern Number And Broad Arrow Were In Fact Required.

BRITISH BROAD ARROW

A broad arrow or pheon is a type of arrow with a typically flat barbed head. It is a symbol used traditionally in heraldry, most notably in England, and later the United Kingdom to mark government property.

The Office of Ordnance was created by Henry VIII in 1544. It dates back to the position of Master of Ordnance, one of whom, Nicholas Merbury, was present at the Battle of Agincourt. The Office became the Board of Ordnance in 1597, its principal duties being to supply guns, ammunition, stores and equipment to the King’s Navy.

The headquarters and main arsenal of the Office were in the White Tower of the Tower of London. The broad arrow mark has been used over the years by the Office and Board to signify at first objects purchased from the monarch’s money and later to indicate government property.

With the demise of the Board in 1855, the War Department and today’s Ministry of Defense continued to use the mark. The arrow also appears in the Ordnance Survey logo.

The broad arrow frequently appeared on military boxes and equipment such as canteens, bayonets and rifles, as well as the British prison uniform from the 1870s, and even earlier, that of transportees in British penal colonies such as Australia. The broad arrow marks were also used by Commonwealth countries on their ordnance.

The broad arrow was used by the British to mark trees intended for ship building use in North America during colonial times. Three axe strikes resembling an arrowhead and shaft, were marked on large mast-grade trees.

It is currently a criminal offence in the United Kingdom to reproduce the broad arrow without authority

BRITISH MILITARY WATCHES WWII

In 1939, with war on the horizon, the British War Department realized they required time pieces. With no plans and knowing that a shortage of watches would surely occur, they quickly purchased watches from numerous Swiss watch makers and retailers.Each watch had to have 15 jewels, white dialS, and subsidiary seconds dial. AND be “waterproof”. Most of the pocket watches were titled “General Service” AND classified as “Temporary Pattern”. Thus they were stamped “GSTP”. These GSTP watches would become the work horse of the military. From Radio operators to drivers, they fulfilled the requirements of keeping time through out the war. At the conclusion of the hostilities, most of the watches purchased by the various Government Buyers were destroyed due to a deal with suppliers. The suppliers had sold these watches at a discount and they did not want the market flooded at the wars conclusion with “surplus military watches”.

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

For Wrist Watches The British Provided The Minimum Standars Such As 15J Minimum And Case Design, And Watch Manufacturers Provided Watches That Met These Basic Requirements. Thus Most British Wwii Wrist Watches Were Ordered With 15 Jewels, White Dials – Some Orders Were Filled W/Black Dials & Some Radium Painted, A Sub-Seconds Register Above The 6 Position Was Standard– In The Beginning– And Cases Were Steel Or Chrome With Mainly Wired Lugs -Again Some Were Holed–, A Screw Back Case Was Required — Though Snap Back Cases Are Also Discovered.

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

THE CASE BACKS HAD A VARIETY OF MARKINGS.

Another Fact Is That Usually The Broad Arrow On Wwii Models Is A Simple Straight Line Affair While Wwi Models Are Like The Above Gallet Timer On Right. Though This Particular Fancy Bold Broadarrow Was Actualy One Of A Very Few Rto Have The Older Arrow, It Just So Happens That The Timer Is A Gallet And Gallet Had Supplied Timers To The British Army, Air Ministry And Navy, So The Old Broadarrow Strikes From Wwi Were Used In Factory Due The Gallet Ongoing Relationship. Thus, If Some Of These Broadarrow Marks Do Not Identify The Time Piece As A Ww One Or Two Time Piece. The Movement Will Date It

AAAGALLET-6.jpg (209038 bytes)Now, The Fact Is, Many Watches Did Not Have All Or Some Of The Above Markings Or Had Just One. The Key Is To Examine Your Find. The Letters And Numbers Can Be Stamped Or Engraved With Fine Tool Or Not. So It Is A Majority Of Items Verses One Item.
Note The British Air Ministry Pocket On Left Has Hand Scribed Broad Arrow With “A” For Air Ministry
Many British Wrist Watches Had Spring Bars Instead Of Soldered Wire Lugs. There Were Also Sweep Second Hand Models. So, Do Not Dismiss A Watch As Being Non-British Military Because It Does Not Measure To The Above Standards.
