GERMAN SS IN ITALY & THE ANCRE FIRST I_E_D

THE ANCRE WRIST WATCH IV
AVERAGE BIRTH AGE 1936
AVERAGE FIND TODAY EASTERN EUROPE
CONDITION RUNNING OR MINOR REPAIR
DIAL BLACK[70%] WHITE[30%]
PAINTED ROMAN NUMERALS [80%]
LUGS [WIRE 60%] [HOLES 40%]
MATERIAL [PLATED 70%] STEEL [30%]

ALL FACTS STATED THROUGH RESTORATION, STUDY, WRITINGS, HISTORY AND, OF COURSE, FINALLY A MOVIE!.

THIS IS PICKING UP FROM THE ESSAY III, ESSAY II  & ESSAY I. WE DEMONSTRATED THE ANCRE AND IT’S WIDE SPREAD USE AMONG MANY OF THE WESTERN EUROPEAN POPULATION OF GERMANY, ITALY, AND FRANCE BEFORE WWII.

THE AROUND 1936 THE HITLER’S GUARD SEEMED TO HAVE PICKED UP ON THE ANCRE. WE DISCOVERED 9 THAT WERE ENGRAVED GIFTS IN 2009. THE SS WERE SOON PRIVATELY INVESTING IN THIS AND SEVERAL OTHER BRANDS [DOWNLOAD THE PDF BELOW].

HISTORY DOES REPEATS ITSELF. I WAS LUCKY TO WATCH A MOVIE I HAD SEEN IN THE EARLY 1960’S. THIS TIME LOW AND BEHOLD I NOTED THAT A WATCH WAS DETAILED IN THIS MOVIE, A MOVIE CENTERED ON THE SS!

USING “SNAGIT” AND “REALPLAYER” I WAS ABLE TO SNAG 5 PICTURES OF AN IED [1944!] AND THE RESULTS.; WHICH INCLUDED PICS OF A WATCH.  THE ANCRE WAS  ACTUALLY UTILIZED IN THIS PERIOD MOVIE. A MOVIE THAT WAS MADE LESS THAN A DECADE AFTER THE END OF WWII. IT WAS A MOVIE THAT HAD PROPS THAT WERE ABSOLUTE GENUINE.

BOTTOM LINE, AN ANCRE IS IN THE FILM IN SEVERAL SHOTS. THE CONFISCATION OF WATCHES WAS RAMPANT ON ALL SIDES BY EVERYONE. THE EASIEST “BOOTY”. FROM THE LIVING AND THE DEAD AND THE INJURED.

UNLIKE THE USA, WHICH HAD QUIT A FEW LIKE THE A-11 A-8 AND OTHERS,.THERE WERE FEW  “SPECIAL” MADE WATCHES FOR THE GERMANS, THE GERMANS SIMPLY ALLOWED THERE CONTRACTED BUYERS TO BUY WATCHES THEN STAMPED THEM WITH THEIR PROPERTY MARKS. THESE MARKS IDENTIFIED WHAT BRANCH OF SERVICE THE WATCH BELONGED TO AND SERIAL MARKED IT. BUT, THE TYPE WATCH WAS USUALLY WHAT WAS THEN AVAILABLE.. 

__________________________________________________________________________________________

GO TO GOLDSMITHTRAINING.COM FOR PDF GERMAN
WWII WATCHES NOT THE GREAT BOOK FOR 300.00 OR SO

BUT SURELY A GOOD FREE START. ALSO JAPAN WWII IMPERIAL BRITISH AND USA

___________________________________________________________________________________________

I ACTUALLY WRITE EACH ESSAY AFTER A BASIC HISTORY ON THE BRAND IS ACCOMPLISHED . IT IS BASED UPON HOURS OF PAST FINDINGS, INCLUDING FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE AT DISCOVERY,  PAST INVESTING, TEAR DOWN, PHOTOGRAPHY, RESTORATION AND THE STUDY AND   SEARCHING FOR PARTS. ALSO THE SEARCH AND STUDY ON MANY PAST VINTAGE GERMAN UTILIZED AND BUILT WATCHES -INCLUDING THE  ANCRE.

FOR MUCH OF OUR WORKS, WATCHES DISCOVERED IN EASTERN EUROPE, THOSE AWESOME “RIDE ALONG” TIME PIECES OF GERMANY’S OPERATION BARBAROSSA, AN OPERATION WHERE   FOUR MILLION SOLDIERS OF THE AXIS POWERS INVADED THE SOVIET UNION ALONG A 2,900-KILOMETER (1,800 MI) FRONT. IT WAS  THE LARGEST INVASION FORCE IN THE  HISTORY OF WARFARE AND IN ADDITION TO TROOPS, THE GERMANS EMPLOYED SOME 600,000 MOTOR VEHICLES AND BETWEEN 600–700,000 HORSES.

TROOPS, GUNS, TANKS, PLANES RIFLES, MACHINE GUNS, RATIONS,   FUEL. OIL,  GREASE, AMMUNITION, AND EVERY OTHER ITEM NECESSARY FOR THE WAR AND SURVIVAL WAS BROUGHT ALONG. TO KEEP TIME AND HANDLE TIMING EVENTS LIKE ARTILLERY, THE ORDINARY WRIST, POCKET WATCH AND TIMERS WERE ALSO PART AND  PORTION OF THE WHOLE.

THOUGH THERE WERE MILITARY ISSUE WATCHES THAT THE AMERICANS, BRITISH, FRENCH, POLISH  AND JUST ABOUT EVERY MAJOR ARMY PROVIDED TO SOME OF THEIR FORCES, THE VAST MAJORITY BROUGHT THEIR OWN WATCHES TO THE SERVICE. 

THIS INCLUDED THE GERMANS. AND, AS STATED ABOVE, THE ANCRE WAS ONE OF THE FAVORITES OF SOME THE GERMAN TROOPERS, ESPECIALLY THE SS.

LIKE THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF, WHICH BECAME A “WORD OF MOUTH” “GRUNT” FAVORITE OR THE GLYCINE AIRMAN, THAT BECAME THE AIR CAVALRY & AIR FORCE PILOT FAVORITE IN VIETNAM, IT JUST WAS ONE  OF MANY THAT GAINED FAVOR.

THE  BOTTOM LINE IS THAT 50% OF ALL WATCHES  “DISCOVERED” ON THE PERSONA OF THE GERMAN PRISONER BY EASTERN EUROPEAN AND/OR SOVIET GUARDS OR SOLDIERS SURVIVED THE EASTERN FRONT AND THE WAR. THEY BECAME CHERISHED POSSESSIONS OF MOSTLY THE POOR PEASANT SOLDIER WHO WOULD TRADE THEM.WE SEE THEM COME UP ON EBAY ALL THE TIME. ONE HAS TO BE CARE FULL, YET GREAT BUYS CAN HAPPEN….

THE  ANCRE IN WHITE OR BLACK MADE UP 120 UNITS OF 4000 TOTAL GERMAN UTILIZED WWII WATCHES EVER RESTORED BUY ROCK. THAT IS A LARGE NUMBER FOR A SINGLE BRAND IN AS SINGLE UNIT IN A SINGLE ERA.. 

FROM THE MOVIE MASSACRE IN ROME STARRING RICHARD BURTON AS THE NON-SS COMMANDER TRYING NOT TO MURDER INNOCENT ITALIANS BY ORDER OF AN SS GENERAL AND HITLER AS PAYBACK. FOR A ITALIAN UNDERGROUND MASSACRE OF 25 TO 30 SS TROOPS IN A PLANNED IED HIT ON THE STREETS OF ROME IN BROAD DAYLIGHT

GERMAN-SS--ROME-WWII-ANCRE-WATCH.jpg (27132 bytes)

WWII GERMAN SS MARCH THROUGH THE STREETS OF ROME EVERY DAY SAME IN A SHOW OF FORCE AS THE ALLIES, MOSTLY AMERICANS  WORK THEIR WAY UP TOWARDS ROME AND THE END OF GERMAN CONTROL OF ITALY. I.E.D. IS IN THE STREET SWEEPERS WHEELED CART.

wwii-german-ss-rome.jpg (32888 bytes)

THE ITALIAN UNDER GROUND DECIDES TO HIT THE SS WITH HOME SEVERAL HOME MADE IDE’S USING THE POWDER FROM BOMBS PLACED IN SHELLS WITH STEEL TOPS PLACED IN STREET CARTS WITH SHORT TIMER FUSES LIT BY HAND 

RPME-ITALY-WWII-GERMAN-SS.jpg (24654 bytes)

THE BOMBS GO OFF KILLING NEARLY 30 GERMANS A REPRISAL OD 50 TO 1 THEN LOWERED TO 10 TO 1 THEN ORDERED THAT THOSE CHOSEN WERE TO BE FROM THOSE ALREADY SENTENCED TO DEATH OR IMPRISONED BUT ONLY  10 WERE IN PRISON … A GREAT MOVIE WITH GREAT STARS INCLUDING RICHARD BURTON AS THE HEAD GERMAN IN ROME WHO WAS NOT SS AND ATTEMPTING TO DEFUSE THE SITUATION  

ss-rome-watch-crystal.jpg (20599 bytes)

HERE WE HAVE AN SS SOLDIERS WATCH WITH THE CRYSTAL
BLOWN OFF  OFF, PRETTY DETAILED SHOOTING EFFECTS FOR 1952

ANCRE-WWII-ROME-ITALY-GERMAN-SS.jpg (18049 bytes)

BUT WHAT TRULY WAS AMAZING IS THE THE ANCRE WATCH

(  an Kree  )

I RESTORED A DOZEN OR SO OVER TIME, AND ADDED ONE TO THE GERMAN WWII WATCH PDF. IN FACT,  IT WAS A BLACK DIAL WITH SIMILAR ROMAN NUMERALS LIKE THE WHITE ONE ABOVE. I HAD BOTH THE SPRING BAR AND THE WIRE LUG VARIETY. NOTE THIN PENCIL HANDS AND SUB REGISTER. DATING WAS  1930 TO 1936, THOUGH SOME DATED 1936 TO 1940. REMEMBER. UNLIKE THE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF WATCHES BEING MADE EVERY YEAR, EVEN WITH CELL PHONES AND SUCH, BACK IN THE DAY, A WATCH   WAS KEPT IN THE FAMILY FOR DECADES. HANDED DOWN & TRADED FOR EVERYTHING KNOWN TO MAN. WATCHES HARDLY LOST VALUE. AND A KNOWN FACT THAT EVEN WATCHES NOT RUNNING HAD VALUE.    THERE WERE MANY WATCH MAKERS AND  REPAIR SHOPS IT WAS NOT JUST A BOOMING TRADE IT WAS AN APPRENTICE TRADE WHERE MOST BRANDS WERE FORMED FROM THOSE WHOM APPRENTICED AND BEGAN THEIR OWN SHOPS. AND THE FACT I BY EARLY 1900 ONE COULD JUST THROW OUT A SHINGLE OR WORK FROM HOME. THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF MEN AND SOME WOMAN REPAIRING WATCHES. RECALL YOUR HISTORY. WATCH A VIDEO ONLINE AT GSW OR GSWW. YOU WILL SEE HUNDREDS OF WOMAN WORKING IN WALTHAM, ELGIN, AND OTHER LARGE WATCH MAKING FACTORIES. SO ANOTHER BIT OF HISTORY   PROVEN BY THE THEATRE AND HARD WORK. A SHOUT TO THE FORUMS THAT RIDICULED THE WRITINGS THAT THE ANCRE WAS A FAVORITE OF THE GERMAN SOLDIER AND THAT THEY WERE DISCOVERED IN THE DOZENS AMONG THE GERMAN PRISONERS OF WAR IN THE SOVIET UNION AND ALONG THOSE   CAPTURED ON THE EASTERN FRONT. IN FACT YOU CAN STILL FIND SOME NICE RESTORABLE FINDS THERE

 

ANOTHER FORUM BLAST FROM THE PAST 2009

I ALWAYS SAY THIS: WE ALL KNOW HOW IT HAPPENS; A PERSON SAYS BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH THE NEXT PERSON JUMPS IN  AND THEN? YOU SIMPLY HAVE TO IGNORE THE FORUM. YOU NEVER WIN EVEN WHEN YOU ARE RIGHT! MY FIRST DEEP JAPAN WRITINGS. I  STATED THAT JAPAN USED RADIUM, AND USED SWISS ORDERED MOVEMENTS SIGNED SEIKOSHA  THAT THEY COPIED SWISS & AMERICAN MOVEMENTS, AND PLACED SWISS SIGNED MOVEMENTS IN SEIKOSHA CASES I GOT SLAMMED IN A FEW FORUMS. BUT AFTER A MONTH OF GATHERING MY STUDY PAGES AND LINKS AND  POSTING. I OFFERED THE FACT THAT MORE COMPANIES THAN JUST GALLET HAD SPECIAL TRADE MARK FOR GALLET -HATTORI  SO THAT THE SWISS MOVEMENTS AND ENTIRE WATCHES COULD BE SOLD AS IF MADE IN JAPAN! SEIKOSHA-SEIKO UTILIZED COPIES OF SWISS MOVEMENTS. ALSO USED SWISS MOVEMENTS DOWN TO THE SWISS BARS SIGNED SEIKOSHA–THAT THE SWISS WERE SUPPLYING PARTS, MOVEMENTS, TIMER MOVEMENTS, CHRONO MOVEMENTS AND PARTS UNTIL PEARL HARBOR! THAT LONGINES, WHEN ACCUSED, STATED THEY ONLY SENT ONE CHRONO MOVEMENT TO THEIR DISTRIBUTOR HATTORI  YET THEY ALL SHIPPED CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENTS AND TIMERS AND WATCH MOVEMENTS WITH  BRIDGES SIGNED SEIKOSHA,  RADIUM  WAS IN FACT USED, IN FACT, IT WAS APPLIED BOTH IN JAPAN  AND ON DIALS/FACES FROM THE SWISS — SOME DIALS/FACES WERE STAMPED BY SWISS, NAMES LIKE IMPERIAL BECAME JAPANESE BRANDS DUE TO THE FACT THEY WERE SHIPPED FROM THE SWISS WITH THE OLD SWISS BRAND OF IMPERIAL. 

HATTORI-SEIKOSHA BEGAN BRANDS LIKE IMPERIAL AND OTHERS ONLY AFTER FIRST RECEIVING THEM FROM THE SWISS.

AN OLD POST  BY AN  OLD EXPERT IN THE OLD WIN3 FORMAT STATED TO BE TAKEN AS LAW: ANY WATCH OR TIMING DEVICE MOVEMENT AND FACE MOUNTED IN AN SK [SEIKOSHA] NICKEL CASE IS A MILITARY ISA IMPERIAL MILITARY DEVICE.
