Bumper’ wristwatches: 1923

 

Self winding mechanisms were more successful in wristwatches because the rotor could
operate every time the owner moved his or her arm. The first version did not appear until
after World War I, when wristwatches became popular. It was invented by a watch repairer
from the Isle of Man named John Harwood in 1923,[11] who took out a UK patent with his
financial backer, Harry Cutts, on 7 July 1923, and a corresponding Swiss patent on 16
October 1923.[12] The Harwood system used a pivoting weight which swung as the wearer
moved, and which in turn wound the mainspring. The ratchet mechanism only wound the
mainspring when moving in one direction. The weight didn’t rotate a full 360°; spring
bumpers limited its swing to about 180°, to encourage a back and forth motion.[13] This
early type of self-winding mechanism is now referred to as a ‘hammer’ or ‘bumper’.

When fully wound, Harwood’s watch would run for 12 hours autonomously. It did not have a
conventional stem winder, so the hands were moved manually by rotating a bezel around the
face of the watch. The watches were first produced with the help of Swiss watch
manufacturer Fortis and went on sale in 1928. 30,000 were made before the Harwood
Self-Winding Watch Company collapsed in 1931 as a result of the Great Depression. ‘Bumper’
watches were the first commercially successful automatic watches; they were made by
several high grade watch manufacturers during the 1930s and 1940s.

FOR MUCH OF HER HISTORY, THE BRITISH WAR DEPARTMENT SUPPLIED PRECISE DETAILS ON ALL
FACETS OF THEIR TIMES PIECES. THEY TESTED THEM AND THEY WERE THEN ASSIGNED A USE NUMBER
AND PATTERN.

IN FACT, AS THE FOLLOWING DEMONSTRATES, THEY WERE STRAIGHT UP:

1890  TRIALS FOR  CHRONOMETERS



Chronometer
makers who may care to send watches to the trial must first obtain permission from the
Hydrographer, Admiralty, Whitehall, S.W., To whom all requests for such permission must be
sent not later than October 6.




The watches are
to be deposited here between the hours of 10 and 1 on any day (excepting Sunday),. during
the week ending with October 20th, after which no watch can under any circumstances be
received.


The rating this
year commences on Saturday, October 25 and will be as follows:


Watch horizontal,
dial up, in room for 6 weeks


Watch horizontal,
dial up, in oven for 1 week


Watch vertical,
pendant up, in oven for 4 days


Watch vertical,
pendant right, in oven for 3 days


Watch vertical,
pendant left, in oven for 3 days


Watch vertical,
pendant up, in oven for 4 days


Watch horizontal,
dial up, in oven for 1 week


Watch horizontal,
dial up, in room for 6 weeks


The mean
temperature in the oven will be from 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit.


The watches are
to be in silver cases with crystal glass, and each must bear a distinguishing No. engraved
on the plate of the movement, Preference will be given to key less watches.

Each watch is
to be labeled with its price, which is to include a mahogany box with ivory label,
cleaning after trial and engraving the Government mark on the dial and plate of the
movement, and the name of the maker, the No. of the watch, the letters D.W., and the
Government mark on the ivory label of the box.

 

 

THUS, ALL WATCHES
WERE GOVERNED BY SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS. FROM MOVEMENTS TO CASES TO DIALS, WATCHES
SPECIFICATIONS WERE PROVIDED AND A “PATTERN” ASSIGNED. SO, A PATTERN WAS IN FACT
REQUIRED.

BUT, IN 1938,
WITH WAR BEATING ON THE DOOR, THE BRITISH, WHO NORMALLY WOULD HAVE REQUIRED TESTING AND
ASSIGNED PATTERNS TO THE DIFFERENT WATCHES, SIMPLY MADE A CALL ON WATCH MANUFACTURERS AND
PROVIDED BASIC REQUIREMENTS AND THEN STAMPED THE THOUSANDS OF TIMERS AND POCKET WATCHES
WITH AN ABBREVIATION OF THE WORDS,  GOVERNMENT SERVICE TEMPORARY PATTERN: GTSP
G.T.S.P. GT/SP

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

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 AustraliaThe 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

Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL,
