U.S. TIME


Salesmen of U.S. Time Corp. use a surprising trick to sell the company's watches. They take the watches off their wrists and calmly throw them on customers' floors to show how shock resistant the watches are.

"The toughness comes partly from bearings of Armalloy, an extremely hard alloy that U.S. Time uses in place of jewels".

Says President Joakim Lehmkuhl:

"A jeweled watch can be a piece of junk just as a non-jeweled watch can. With the modern metal alloys available, the role of jewels is much overemphasized.

Last week U.S. Time, the world's biggest producer of watches, announced a new line of self-winding, Armalloy-bearing watches that can be thrown not only on floors but also against Swiss competition

With its new line, U.S. Time, which grossed about $60 million for the year ended April 30, 1955, will swell production to well over 4,000,000 wrist watches this year, including Timex and Ingersoll brands, Davy Crockett and Mickey Mouse watches, all Sears, Roebuck's Tower brand and all Girl/Boy Scout watches.

U.S. Time watches sell for $22.95 or under because, says Lehmkuhl:

"since there are more Chevies and Fords on the road than Cadillacs and Lincolns, the well-made, low-priced watch will be dominating the market for some years.*
