I have some absolutely wonderful news to share today! As all of you probably already knew Charles Leon Depollier is my absolute favorite figure from horological history. Charles L. Depollier invented and manufactured the world's first waterproof wrist watch that actually worked back in 1918. It...
Yes, things have been delayed for a few weeks.
I think they were adding a few more options to choose from.
I believe the new ordering date is February 21st.
Prices will be listed before you place an order along with the pics and options.
There will be one than one watch to choose from.
The new Waltham "Field & Marine" Watch will be made in Mendrisio Switzerland.
Here is a short film we made explaining the history of the original "Field & Marine" and the need for waterproof technology to be developed.
That will certainly make things more difficult.
But, I have been told this before, "the records don't exist".
Then, I found them on my own and submitted them back to the government archives.
If we have learned anything this past year................don't believe everything a government...
Yes, I can confirm that this is 100% true.
Waltham Watches is going to re-issue the Waltham Depollier "Field & Marine" Waterproof Watch with the assistance of Watch Angles.

I'm striving for the Air, Land & Sea Carl F. Bucherer trifecta.
I've got the TravelTec (AIR) and the ScubaTec Manta (SEA), all I need now is the CFB Manero Flyback (LAND).

I just read of Phillip's passing in the Bulletin, very sad. I spoke with Phillip at many NAWCC shows over the years and a couple of times on the phone and emails. His book on Dennison was a game changer for the trench watch community. Thanks to his very solid research we now know what the...
I scored a "can" of watches about 7-8 years ago.
I never opened them but curiosity nearly got the best of me!
My can was dated 1942 I believe and they were un-jeweled movements.
Somebody told me that they were used for trade on the islands of the South Pacific when dealing with the local...

For the most part they were made with 14mm - 16mm lugs depending on the case manufacturer.
However, some 6s trench watch cases made by the AWCCo or Fahys came with 10mm - 12mm lugs...
