FIRST COMES THE ELGIN HACKING AVIATION
MILITARY WATCH

THE A-11 HAS A CLAIM TO FAME

Bomber and fighter crews and pilots required
the ability to mission with time. The most crucial contribution to an Allied victory was
the delivery of ordinance across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Pacific over land and sea. For
critical timing the United States Army/Navy Air Forces utilized the A-11 Hacking Wrist
watch. The A-11 was a specification and US production standard for mainly US Air Corps
wrist watches that were produced under contract with the US Government War department by
Elgin, Bulova and Waltham. Though most design aspects were universal: Black dial, white
hands, a hand wound hacking movement with center sweep second hand, same minute and hour
hands, hour numbers from 1 to 12, a second chapter scale with smaller minute/second
numbers in increments of 10 on the outside edge of the dial, accuracy of 30 seconds per
day at room temperature was contract specified, there were MINOR case and dial/hands
variations, SUCH AS COIN BEZEL VS SMOOTH BEZEL.

Gallet is a
historical manufacturer of high-end Swiss timepieces.

Decimal Artillery Timer (1943) – decimal reading
stopwatch manufactured by Gallet, used on Tank Landing Ship #13 during the D-Day Invasion
of Normandy
Gallet is the worlds oldest watch and clock making house with history
dating back to Humbertus Gallet, a clock maker who became a citizen of Geneva in 1466. The
Gallet & Cie (Gallet & Company) name was officially registered by Julien Gallet
(18061849) in 1826, who moved the family business from Geneva to La Chaux-de-Fonds,
Switzerland. Prior to this date, operations commenced under the name of each of the family
patriarchs. Gallet is best known during the 20th century to the present day for its line
of MultiChron chronograph wristwatches. Produced primarily for military, industrial, and
other professional applications, Gallets MultiChron watches often incorporated a number of
advanced timekeeping innovations. A Gallet timepiece of particular renown was the Flight
Officer time zone chronograph. Commissioned by Senator Harry S. Truman in 1939 for pilots
of the United States Army Air Forces, the Flight Officer (a.k.a. Flying Officer) had a
rotating 12 hour bezel and the names of 48 major world cities printed on the periphery of
the dial (face). These features made it possible to calculate changes in the time as an
aviator flew across lines of longitude. Besides being the first time zone calculating
wristwatch, the Flight Officer was one of the world first wrist chronographs to be housed
in a water resistant case. Truman wore a Gallet Flight Officer during his terms as 33rd
president (19451953). Gallet set his sights on the rest of the world markets. In 1864,
Lon’s brother, Lucien Gallet (1834 1879), established the company’s first US location in
Chicago with a New York City office following soon after.
Together with Jules Racine, a cousin of the Gallet brothers living in the US,the company
began its expansion into the American market. When the worldwide economic downturn of the
1930caused international trade to plunge by as much as two-thirds, it suddenly became
unprofitable for the Gallet Company to continue production of many of its recently
established brands. Gallet chose instead, to consolidate its efforts back into its primary
area of expertise, that of the manufacture of high quality professional-use timepieces.
Under the family name, the Gallet Company continued to flourish by providing hand-held
timers and chronograph wristwatches toallied military and industrial clients during the
years leading up to and through World War II. A wartime Gallet timepiece of particular
renown was the Flight Officer time-zone chronograph (1939 – present). Commissioned by
Senator Harry S. Truman senatorial staff in 1939 for the United States Army Air Force,
this wristwatch made it possible to calculate changes in the time as a pilot flew across
lines of longitude.

The company was established in New York in
1890 by Albert WITTNAUER (1856-1908), a Swiss clockmaker. The company produced watches,
clocks and aircraft instruments. WITTNAUER produced compasses in cooperation with the
famous Swiss watch maker Longines. Wittnauer was Longines agent during WWI. The Longines
Wittnauer Watch Company (LWWW Co.) was created in 1936.
