CHRONOGRAPH A RETOUR GEISMAR

IMG_2980.JPG (132835 bytes)

CHRONOGRAPH A RETOUR GEISMAR
With Breitling 639 Base

This Bomber stopwatch mechanism was considered specialized equipment utilized by many European Airforce
in the 1920’s and ’30s. Producers included **Breitling, Minerva, Leonidas, Universal, Zenith, and **Geismar
The French Lip company created a different movement then those above that had a similar look and use.

**GEISER UTILIZED A BREITLING CHRONOGRAPHS AS THEIR BASE MOVEMENTS
BOTH
C. 638 AND C. 639

Matte steel, triple body with case and double backs, 4 lugs, rotating bi-directional revolving notched bezel with fixed inner triangle/arrow index
marker for target timing, hold-button  to interrupt timing, co-axial start / stop and reset button in the winding crown, reverse timing,
snap-on inner outer case back, heavy wire lugs   1/5th second divisions for30 seconds per revolution  and 5-second Arabic markers ,frosted
gilt,  straight-line lift escapement, monometallic balance, flat balance spring selfcompensating.

WHAT IS THIS AWESOME LEATHER STRAP FOR?
BELOW YOU WILL NOTICE LUGS, THAT IS FOUR TO BE PRECISE.
THE WAY YOU USED THIS TIMING DEVICE WAS TO PLACE IT ON YOUR THIGH
THAT IS, A PILOT OR BOMBARDIER WOULD MOUNT THE DEVICE
ON THEIR LEG USING THE LEATHER STRAP ABOVE

THE GULLIES ON THE BEZEL WERE PLACED THIS WAY TO MAKE TURING THE BEZEL–
WHICH TURNED THE INNER POINTER– SUPER EASY AND FAST.
WHEN IT IS MOUNTED ON YOUR THIGH YOU CAN USE ONE HAND TO RAPIDLY
PUT THIS BABY THROUGH HER PACES. START STOP, REVERSE, CHANGE
THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW AND READ IT.  AFTER 10 TO 15 TIMES,
YOU CAN MASTER TIME ITSELF

THE BREITLING 638 IS THE BASE. WHICH MEANS THE ADDED FUNCTIONS, SUCH AS
REVERSE OPERATION WAS ADDED BY THE COMPANY PRODUCING THESE BEAUTIES

NOTE OUTSIDE COVER HAS

BREITLING 638 CHRONO MOVEMENT

Though the appearance of the flyback function was made when the Breitling company
made the first watch in 1923, it used a separate chronograph button to stop and reset
rather than these functions being controlled by the winding-crown.

However the patent of the flyback chronograph belongs to Longines with its first flyback
chronograph dating back to 1936. In fact, the US used a Longines dual register Chrono
with button in crown for the A-7 Pilots watch. go hereTimeFraud Search A-7).

In 1934 the Breitling again hit the mark. They began producing chronographs with a
second chronograph button with the function of returning the seconds hand to zero.
Thus it became possible to measure short intervals of time using the add function.

Yet, the fact is. it was discovered that chronographs equipped watches meant for pilots that had
the flyback function and single button, like the A-7 of the 1930’s, were much
easier and efficient from the point of view of time saving and ease of use if these 
pilots watches would instantly start, stop and/or restart with one push of one button not three!

As a “Bomb Timer” or “Chronograph with Return” it runs in normal positions [clock wise] then, with a simple pressing of the crown,
the timer runs in reverse. Thus user can reverse timing– as in running backwards . This model seems to date FROM 1935 to
1940 models. In fine condition, this unusual awesome time piece is an oversized, chromium-plated, 30-second timer/chrono with memory index.

Chronograph “flyback” or “flyback”.
The  Chronograph with flyback function has a special feature compared
to a conventional chronograph. The flyback, allows one to reset current
timing and to revive the timer instantly by pressing and quickly releasing the reset button.
This beauty not only does all above but will reverse timing

This flyback chronograph is a complication watch which uses a single push
button for stopping, resetting and restarting or reversing the chronograph function of the watch.

The flyback function has also is titled
Retour-en-vol
(French: retour – to return; en – on; vol – flight)

BEFORE YOU READ ON LOOK AT THE DIAL BELOW
AND THE MOVEMENT BELOW IT

IMG_8535.JPG (174847 bytes)

THE DIAL WAS ONCE THE EXACT COLOR OF OUR DIAL RESTORATION ANDILLUMINATION DOTS WERE USED. THE HOUR, MINUTE, SUB-SECOND AND COUNTER HANDS ARE CORRECT – SEVERAL VARIATIONS WERE USED. THE CENTER CHRONO-SECONDS HAND SHOULD BE BLACK AND IT SHOULD FOLLOW THE DESIGN OF HOUR & MINUTE HAND. WE SAW ONE SEIKOSHA NAVY AIR CHRONOGRAPH WITH 24 HR MARKERS THAT HAD AN OPEN DIAMOND TIP WITH CLOSED DIAMOND TAIL. AT THE END OF OUR RESTORATION, WE WERE FORCED TO USE A SIMILAR BLACK SWEEPS AND AN ORIGINAL JAPANESE 24HR POCKET WATCH/TIMER DIAL IMPRINTER –TO IMPRINT THE RED 24 HOUR CHAPTER – WHICH PLACED THE “18” BELOW THE CENTER OF THE SUB-SECONDS HAND. OTHER THAN THAT, IT CAME OUT STUNNING!

JAPANESE WWII NAVEL AIR CHRONOGRAPH ON MILITARY WATCH FORUM

4TH DOWN
Classic Seikosha Navy Air Chronograph, with 24hour markers.

LONGINES: “We have sent 1 movement alone on the 28th June 1941 to Messrs. Hattori, who were our agents in Japan at that time. It is a movement caliber 18.72 chronograph”

NOTE
I HAVE LONG ASSERTED THAT MANY SIGNED SEIKOSHA MOVEMENTS IN CLOCKS, WATCHES, TIMERS AND CHRONOGRAPHS WERE/ARE IN FACT SWISS OR AMERICAN MOVEMENTS; THAT SEIKOSHA UTILIZED THESE SWISS AND AMERICAN MOVEMENTS, SOME WITH MODS, OTHERS AS THEY WERE.

IN FACT, I RECEIVED ALL KINDS OF NEGATIVE COMMENTS FROM FORUM MEMBERS AND FAMOUS, PUBLISHED MILITARY WATCH BOOK AUTHORS WHEN I WROTE ABOUT THIS FACT 6 YEARS AGO.

THE ABOVE LINK IS JUST ONE OF MANY WRITE UPS THAT HAVE APPEARED DEMONSTRATING THE FACTS AS I WROTE THEM 6 YEARS AGO!

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

IMG_8537.JPG (163435 bytes)

OMG
LOOKS LIKE THIS MOVEMENT WAS ONCE
SUBMERGED HALF IN HALF OUT OF SALT WATER.
IT DEFINITIVELY EXPERIENCED A TOUGH TIME
TO SAY THE LEAST

I RECEIVE HIGHER PRICE WHEN EVER I CAN SHOW WATCHES THAT EXPERIENCED YEARS OF WAR FARE.

THUS WE ATTEMPT TO DUPLICATE WHAT WE SEE AND WHAT WE FINDONLINE AND IN OUR MANY MILITARY RELATED BOOKS [450] WHEN WE RESTORE A WAR TEMPERED TIME PIECE.

THE GREATEST DIFFICULTY WAS THE COLUMN WHEEL MOVEMENT ABOVE IS IT’S TERRIBLE CONDITION. YET, AS TESTAMENT TO IT’S PRECISION PARTS, MATERIALS AND ASSEMBLY, THIS BABY STILL CHUGGED ALONG.

UNLIKE DISCOVERING A PRISTINE EXAMPLE THAT NEVER SAW THE WEAR AND TEAR OF COMBAT, THIS JAPANESE IMPERIAL NAVY PILOTS CHRONOGRAPH COME FROM AN ESTATE THAT HAS AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTION AND INVENTORY OF COMBAT WATCHES.

WATCHES THAT BELONGED TO SOLDIERS, AIRMEN, MEDICS, NURSES, DOCTORS AND OTHER MEN AND WOMAN THAT WERE IN THE THICK OF ACTION FROM WWI THROUGH VIETNAM.

THE MAJORITY CAME FROM BATTLE FIELDS OR PRISONERS OF WAR!

NOW, READ BELOW TO SEE THE BUTTERFLY THAT MORPHED FROM THE WORM!

NOTE
THIS MOVEMENT AFTER TWO CLEANINGS
SHOWS SIGNS OF ACTUAL USE.

COMBINING CASE BACK KANJI AND OTHER DETAILS
WE SAY, WITHOUT DOUBT, THAT THIS WAS
A WATCH THAT SAW PLENTY OF SERVICE

UNLIKE BRITISH AND AMERICAN WWII WATCHES
JAPANESE IMPERIAL AND WWII ERA TIME PIECES
WERE AND REMAIN EXTREMELY RARE.

IMG_3903.JPG (135436 bytes)

WHICH ONE IS BETTER

IMG_3858.JPG (149333 bytes)

AMONG THE PROBLEMS ROCK DISCOVERED ONE WAS THE WORST HE COULD EVER FIND
THE LOWER –WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT — BALANCE PIVOT JEWEL WAS CRACKED AND CHIPPED
THE ENTIRE BALANCE SHIFTED AS IF BOTH PIVOTS WERE BROKE
THE PROBLEM MULTIPLIED WHEN HE REALIZED SOME ONE HAD RE-JEWELED IT
THE SIZE WAS SO WEIRD NO ONE HAD A JEWEL TO FIT
SO ROCK WENT THROUGH HIS REPAIR PARTS FOR SEIKOSHA

IMG_3845.JPG (160812 bytes)

HE FOUND ONE THAT WAS TWICE AS LARGE AND PRESSED IT OUT

IMG_3888.JPG (149880 bytes)

HE REMOVED THE SCREW DOWN OIL CAP

IMG_3862.JPG (105709 bytes)

THEN USED A PRESS TO PUSH HER THROUGH

IMG_3886.JPG (105519 bytes)

HERE IS THE JEWEL HE PRESSED OUT
IMAGINE THAT LITTLE GUY IS CAUSING THE PROBLEMS

 

IMG_3853.JPG (138384 bytes)

NOW, HERE IS A REPAIR I DOUBT ANY ONE EVER TIED. NOTE THE SUPER SMALL
HOLE WHERE THE PIVOT RESTS.SEE NEXT TO BLACK LINE

IMG_3859.JPG (189515 bytes)

HERE SHE IS AGAIN SEE SMALL

IMG_3887.JPG (124206 bytes)

ROCK USED A DIAMOND TIP TOOL. THE POINT IS BEVELED SO CARE HAD TO BE TAKEN,.
HE HAD TO ENLARGE THE HOLE ALMOST TWICE ITS SIZE
AND WORK BOTHER SIDES OR ELSE THE METAL WOULD HAVE BEEN BEVELED

IMG_3885.JPG (59682 bytes)

BAM! LOOK HOW PERFECT IT IS

THAT JEWEL WOULD PRESSED RIGHT INTO THE HOLE

IMG_3874.JPG (135972 bytes)

HERE ROCK CUT A CIRCLE OUT OF A BANDAGE
OILED THE BOTTOM SIDE
AND USED A JEWELERS PUSH TOLL VS THE 1100.00 UNIT HE OWNS
HE MACHINED THE SQUARE STEEL ROD IN A WOOD HANDLE
UNTIL IT WAS ROUNDED AND THEN CONCAVE ITS CENTER
THEN PLACED IN OVER THE BANDAGE AND PUSHED ONE TIME

YES, I KNOW, WATCH GUYS ARE GONNA GIVE HIM HELL

LOL

IMG_3847.JPG (122492 bytes)

PROPER BALANCE IS THE LOWER ONE
YOU CAN SEE THE FINISH LINES

IMG_3909.JPG (184723 bytes)

HERE SHE IS ALL MOUNTED UP
RUNS STOPS AND ALIGNS PERFECTLY

IMG_3907.JPG (155721 bytes)

ROCK DID NOT BUFF THIS BEAUTY OUT
JUST THE BEZEL SOME AND CRYSTAL

IS ALSO ORIGINAL
INTERESTING IT IS SIGNED IN CENTER
SLIGHT YELLOWING FROM THE 1940’S CELLULOID
