MESSAGE TO A 1916 ANNUAL MEETING OF
“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.”
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
RESTORED WWII BRITISH POCKETS + CONVERSION
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.
“WWW” FOR WRIST WATCH WATERPROOF, BRITISH BROAD ARROW PROPERTY MARK SERIAL AND/OR SERVICE NUMBERS, “A.T.P.” “ARMY TEMPORARY PATTERN”
Pocket Watches And Timers Were Invested In And, Unlike Wwi, Where Each Model Had A “Pattern Number Mark” Relating To The Specific Type Of Time Piece, The British Dropped These And The Broad Arrow Was No Longer Bold But Placed With Three Simple Lines .
Additionally, The British Air Ministry And Navy May Have Service Marks Like The Air Ministry “A” Or “Am”. Other Marks You Will Discover At The End Of This Essay.
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
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.
