    [ Please go to my "Time Capsule" website ( www.TimeCapsule-Watch.com ) to read the story of Lt. Ethan Warren Allen & his 1942 Mido Multifort watch (click the <Presentation / Personal > menu....) ]

    Lt. Ethan W. Allen was a distinguished WW2 naval aviator; collaborator on 1941's Dive Bomber movie (see trailer clip....); and, tragically, the father of Arthur Leigh Allen -- the primary suspect for California's 1960s Zodiac Serial Killer....

    Lt. Allen was the training commander for the new pilots of Squadron 11-B at Corpus Christi Naval Air Station. His young pilots presented him with this Mido MultiFort Automatic in May 1942.

    A most interesting watch -- with a very interesting history.....please check out Lt. Allen's Time Capsule story...

    Thanks!

    Bob
