ONLY MAJOR PROBLEM IS THE CASE BACK IS DAMAGED ,ONCE OFF IT
WOULD NOT “SNAP” BACK. LOTS OF RUST/CORROSION . SO MUCH
THAT WE COULD NOT CLEAN TO BASE OR SMOOTH. PLACING BACK ON
CAUSED BALANCE TO START AND STOP. ABLE TO REMOVE ENOUGH CORROSION
TO USE A CASE SEALER IN LIEU OF SEAL AND USE SAME TO ADHERE CASE BACK

WWII SIGNED SIS ATP
ORIGINAL SIS DIAL
RE-OUTLINED AND ILLUMINATED

UK’s domestic intelligence agency, see MI5. For other uses, see MI-6 (disambiguation).Secret Intelligence Service MI6. Agency overview Formed 1909; 105 years ago Preceding Agency Secret Service Bureau Type Foreign intelligence Jurisdiction Her Majesty’s Government Headquarters SIS Building, London, Motto Semper Occultus (“Always Secret”) Annual budget Single Intelligence Account (£2.3 billion in 2010-2011 financial year)

The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), commonly known as MI6 (Military Intelligence, Section 6), is the British intelligence agency which supplies the British Government with foreign intelligence. It operates under the formal direction of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) alongside the internal Security Service (MI5), the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and Defense Intelligence (DI)

The most significant failure of the service during the war was known as the Venlo incident, named for the Dutch town where much of the operation took place. Agents of the German army secret service, the Abwehr, and the Counter-Espionage section of the Sicherheitsdienst (SD), posed as high-ranking officers involved in a plot to depose Hitler. In a series of meetings between SIS agents and the ‘conspirators’, SS plans to abduct the SIS team were shelved due to the presence of Dutch police. On the night of 8–9 November 1939, a meeting took place without police presence. There, the two SIS agents were duly abducted by the SS

WE TRIED THREE WHEELS BUT THEY HAVE NOT WORKED. WEEMS RUNS BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN SHE STOPS DUE TO WHEEL. IF IT WORKS FINE, IF NOT, WE WILL HOLD OFF FEE FOR SERVICE
JUST BLILL FOR THE REST OF THE WORK, AND PLACE THE WHEEL ON OUR LIST. THEN PATRON CAN SHIP BACK. THE WATCH OPERATES FINE BUT THAT STOPPING HAS TO BE FIXED. IT WILL TAKE 4 TO 6 MONTHS TO FIND THE PART AND A CROWN. WE WOULD MAKE ONE BUT CANNOT FIND A CROWN WITH THE EXACT PARTICULARS, DIAL IS STUNNING. THE OLD ONE WAS NOT FADED., IT WAS DAMAGED, 85% OF PAINT GONE.U

In 1929,Captain Philip Van Horn Weems of the U.S. Navy (1889-1979), designed a system for navigation along with a Second Setting Watch watch that used a rotating exterior bezel or center dial with minutes/seconds chapter ring to synchronise the watch to the second using the radio time signal without adjusting the hands, This design incorporated a second “locking” crown that allowed the user to lock down the rotating bezel at the precise timing on the bezel.

Captain Philip Van Horn Weems designed the “Weems System of Navigation” in 1927 – the year Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic. His “system” employed a modified sextant taking two “shots” of the sun, allied to an accurate time reading from his “Second Setting Watch”, followed by making reference to the tables in the Line of Positions book. (The Line of Position book provided extensive charts with precalculated positions; allowing a pilot to look up the positions quickly and easily, instead of performing the complicated calculations himself.)

Unless your watch had a hacking seconds-hand, [THE A II PILOTS WWII WATCH W/HACK WOULD BE INTRODUCED TEN YEARS LATER] along with precise timekeeping and you’ve set it correctly in the first place, with the help of a radio signal, you can be out by a few seconds at any given time. And a few seconds at air speeds and over great distances can prove dangerous, if not fatal.

Weems system along with his invention of the Second Setting Watch enabled pilots and navigators to read truly accurate time directly from the watch face during an era when chronometric precision was cotly and rare.

In 1929, in partnership with Longines, Weems registered a patent for this design. Longines produced the original “WEEMS” with locking crown 2 position [same size as U.S. GOV MIL WWII A-II PILOTS WATCH].and added the larger model with locking crown at 4 position,

HOURS ANGLE WATCH
MODERN VERSION

A note of interest, Charles A. Lindbergh, who was a pupil of Weems, used the concept as an additional feature in his Hour Angle Watch. This patent was registered in 1935.

THOUGH THE WATCH RAN FINE, AND CENTER SECONDS WORKED, AND THE RESET WORKED, ..THE START-STOP FUNCTION CONTROLLED BY THE TOP PUSHER WAS NOT WORKING. I OVERHAULED THE MOVEMENT AND BECAUSE THESE ARE VALJOUX BASED, I HAD THE NEW PARTS TO REPAIR THE START/STOP MECHANISMS.

NOTE THE PUSHER CAPS. THEY ARE REPLACEMENTS. THEY DID NOT COME WITH THIS CASE. IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET NEW ONES. PERIOD. JULESBOREL NOR OTTO FREI DID NOT HAVE THEM.. YOU CAN SEE THEY DO NOT COVER THE PUSHERS.

NOW, IF YOU DID NOT READ THIS, THEY WOULD BE FINE..
