WITH ONLY A FEW ALTERATIONS, MOERIS OFFERED A HEAVY DUTY, FINELY DESIGNED, MOERIS 15J 10.5 MOVEMENT AS THE BASE MOVEMENT IN THEIR BEST WATCHES FROM 1938 THROUGH TO 1956. THE FIRST MOERIS 15J CALIBER 10.5 WAS PLACED IN A WIRE LUGGED SNAP BACK CASE WITH BLACK RADIUM DIAL THAT FOUND ITS WAY INTO GERMANY. IN 1939, MOERIS UTILIZED THE SAME 15J CAL 10.5 TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE BRITISH WAR DEPARTMENT. THE RESULT WAS 15 JEWEL10.5 CASED IN A WATER PROOF SCREW BACK CASE WITH WHITE RADIUM DIAL. THIS VERSION CAN BE FOUND SIGNED BY THE BRITISH AS "ATP".  THEN GERMAN SUPPLIERS TO THE GERMAN MILITARY ORDERED THE SAME MOERIS WITH BLACK RADIUM DIALS IN CASES WITH STEEL SCREW DOWN CASE BACKS. THESE CAN BE FOUND WITH D [serial]  H  ON THE CASE BACK-- THOUGH AT THE MIDDLE OF 1944 TO TO THE END OF THE WAR, THE GERMANS RECEIVED ADDITIONAL WATCHES THAT WERE NEVER STAMPED DH AND SOME WERE HALF THE QUALITY OF THOSE PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED. WHEN THE USA JUMPED INTO THE WAR, THEY HAD COMPLETELY A DIFFERENT WAY OF BUYING WATCHES FOR THE MILITARY.  THE US GOVERNMENT DESIGNED THE WATCH,  THEN MANUFACTURERS IN THE STATES --OR WITH A LARGE PART OF OPERATIONS IN THE STATES-- FOUGHT FOR THE CONTRACTS. PRODUCING EXACTLY WHAT WAS ORDERED.MANY GREAT COMPANIES COULD NOT STOP PRODUCTION OF WATCHES THEY DESIGNED AND WERE SELLING OVER SEAS. BUT WITH MILLIONS OF MEN AND WOMAN BEING RECRUITED FOR THE MILITARY, AND MILLIONS MORE MOVING INTO THE BURGEONING WAR PRODUCTION, THE MARKET WAS SIMPLY TOO LARGE TO IGNORE. MEN AND WOMAN WHO WOULD HAVE NEVER INVESTED IN A WATCH, NEED THEM NOW. ,

THE LEATHER STRAP ABOVE WAS OWNED BY A BRITISH SOLDIER IN THE 1ST ARMORED DIVISION. THE DI [DUI] WE BELIEVE IS THE 40TH US TANK BRIGADE OR REGIMENT. THIS STRAP THERE MAY BE SOME PICS IN THIS OFFER SHOWING THIS AWESOME BRITISH ATP MOERIS MOUNTED ON THE ABOVE STRAP. THOSE ARE PICS TO SHOW HOW SHE WOULD LOOK. THE LEATHER STRAP IS 150.00. BUT WE ALSO REALIZE THAT A GREAT STRAP IS REQUIRED FOR THIS GREAT WATCH. THEREFORE WE ARE SUPPLYING TWO STRAPS. I NATO G-18MM IN BLACK BALLISTIC NYLON. THIS  NYLON IS FOUR TIMES THE STRENGTH OF THE REGULAR EVERYDAY NATO STRAP. ADDITIONALLY, AS A WIRE LUG WWII MOERIS, WE ARE SUPPLYING A LEATHER WIRE LUG STRAP ALSO. IT TAKES BUT 15 SECONDS TO REMOVE NATO AND 1 MINUTE TO PLACE THE LEATHER ONE ON!
