WWI AND PERSHING TRENCH

Categories: Uncategorized
Published on: April 12, 2015

THE POPULARITY OF THE UNIQUE PERSHING DIAL
MADE THAT DIAL THE PERSHING DIAL.

NOTE THE POCKET STYLED / CASED PERSHING ABOVE. WE STILL DISCOVER SPECIAL “PERSHING DIALED” WATCHES IN MANY FORMS

IT SEEMS THAT MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, SOMEONE, USUALLY FROM A WATCH FORUM,WILL CONTACT ROCK TO INFORM HIM THAT SOMETHING/EVERYTHING IN AN OFFER IS INCORRECT. NOW, ROCK IS NOT INFALLIBLE , BUT 99.5% OF THE TIME, EXPERIENCE AND STUDY MATCHED WITH REASON WINS THE DAY.


FOR AMERICANS [GENERAL PERSHING]

IN THIS “CASE” IT WAS STATED THE DIAL IS NOT A “PERSHING “, THAT ELGIN MADE A ONLY A SPECIFIC CUSHION CASED WATCH WITH THIS DIAL CALLED THE PERSHING. THAT IT IS THE WATCH AND NOT THE DIAL. WELL, IN THE US IT WAS A PERSHING DIAL.
IN BRITAIN A KITCHENER DIAL, IN FRANCE A FOCH DIAL.


FOR BRITISH [LORD KITCHENER]

Materials_and_Money.tif.jpg (18186 bytes)
Join Your Country’s Army! God save the King.”

YOU SEE, ELGIN PRIDED ITSELF AS THE AVERAGE MAN’S WATCH COMPANY
SUPPLYING TOP LINE WATCHES FOR THE AVERAGE AMERICAN [DUE TO MASS PRODUCTION]. AND, YES, THEY CREATED A CUSHION CASED “PERSHING WATCH” WITH THIS DIAL, AND THE BRITISH KITCHENER AND FRENCH FOCH.

FOCH.jpg (2608 bytes)
FRENCH GENERAL FOCH
HERO 1918 FRANCE

BUT SILVER AND GOLD FILLED CUSHION CASES THEY WERE COSTLY AND IN THE USA, THERE WERE MORE EX 1ST ID VETERANS THAN ANYKITCHENER-STRAP.jpg (64673 bytes)

.STORE IN ENGLAND
NOTE KITCHENER MILITARY STRAPS?
NOTE THE THOUSANDS OF TRENCH WATCHES
[4 BUCKS US]
IT WAS ARGUED FOR 3 YEARS BY ROCK THAT MORE MILITARY
WATCHES WERE SOLD THAN ISSUED BY THE MILITARY
THERE FOR THERE ATE MIL ISSUED AND MIL NON ISSUED WATCHES

SALES AND DEMAND MEANT USING THIS DIAL IN DIFFERENT CASES AND CALLING ANY WATCH WITH THIS DIAL “A PERSHING” . WHILE I CANNOT SAY THAT THE KITCHENER/FOCH VERSIONS BECAME THAT POPULAR, SO MANY WERE SOLD IN THE USA THAT EVEN TODAY BRAND NEW OLD STOCK CAN BE FOUND. YES AN AMPLE
SUPPLY OF NEW OLD STOCK!.

AND, WHEN ORDERING A DIAL, A WATCH MAKER WOULD ASK FOR A “PERSHING DIAL.

MORE WATCHES IN “ORD” STYLE MILITARY CASES EXIST WITH PERSHING DIALS THEN CUSHION CASED “PERSHING DIALED” CASES..

THEY SIMPLY WERE THE RAGE. AND WHILE OFFICERS SERVED, IT WAS THE INFANTRY THAT DOMINATED THE FIELD. 1ST ID [LATER WWII BIG RED ONE] INFANTRY DIVISION SURVIVORS PURCHASED PERSHING DIALED WATCHES AS WELL AS THE PUBLIC.

WWI TRENCH PERSHING DIALED

IMG_9273.JPG (117324 bytes)

WWI DATED ELGIN MOVEMENT & CASE

PROBLEM WITH SOME STATING ONLY A CUSHION CASE WITH THIS DIAL WAS A PERSHING IS THAT UP UNTIL THE LATE 1930’S, YOU COULD STILL
INVEST IN A POCKET WATCH AND PICK THE MOVEMENT, DIAL AND CASE

YOU ALSO COULD HAVE A TRENCH CONFIGURED THE WAY YOU WANTED IT TO BE
BLACK DIAL WHITE DIAL STRAPS … OH AND YOU COULD BUY READY TO GO

NOW, WHEN THE PERSHING WAS FIRST RELEASED,WITH SILVER, “PURE NICKEL”. OR GOLD FILLED CUSHION CASE WITH WHAT WOULD BECOME THE PERSHING DIAL, IT WAS COSTLY

WHY ARE MINTY PERSHING DIALS STILL FOUND IN PRISTINE CONDITION TODAY?

IT DID NOT TAKE LONG FOR WATCH MAKERS AND JEWELERS TO MOUNT THE DIAL IN VARIOUS CASES
TAKE THE ELGIN POCKET WATCH ABOVE. THE DIAL FIT PERFECT ON THE MOVEMENT

99% OF THE “EXPERTS” WHO SATE THE PERSHING WAS JUST ONE CUSHION CASED
WATCH AVAILABLE IN THREE STYLE FINISHES ARE ABSOLUTELY WRONG, WRONG, WRONG

EXPECT TO SEE SOME LIKE THE ONE ABOVE. THOUGH I WOULD NOT
SAY IT IS A PERSHING WITHOUT PHYSICALLY INSPECTING IT

 

PERSHING-OR-NOT.jpg (22368 bytes)

THE ABOVE WATCH IS NOT WHAT IS EXPECTED OF THE PERSHING, I FOUND THE LINK TO IT ON A WATCH FORUM UNDER FRANKEN PERSHING WATCHES. BUT, NOTE THE ABOVE DIAL HAD RADIUM DIAL AND HANDS. NOTE THAT IT IS A 1918 + TWO PART DIAL-YOU CAN SEE THIS BE LOOKING AT THE DEEP SUNK SUB SECONDS REGISTER

THUS, THIS INDEED LOOKS TO BE A WATCHMAKER OR JEWELERS HANDY WORK.
THIS IS WHY THE IT WAS THE DIAL THAT BECAME THE IDENTIFIER OF A “PERSHING” WATCH. AFTER ALL, PLENTY OF CUSHION CASES WERE AVAILABLE BUT ONLY ONE DIAL THAT WAS IDENTIFIED AS A PERSHING
