Pocket watch Made for the air-force, Navy, and army by Hamilton Watch Co for the war effort. (Greenwich Civil Time) is a 24 hour watch used by the U. Government for precise tank assaults, Navy attacks, and air strikes by the air-force , especially when you wanted to keep radio silence from the enemy for example the Doolittle raid over Tokyo. The back contains most of the information on the watch: It is part No.5740, MFR's PART NO. 86366 BY HAMILTON WATCH CO. Adjusted to 6 positions, 22 JEWELS, U.
Basically this is an advance variation of their 992B Railroad watch adapted to keep time on the 24 hour clock at Greenwich, England so everyone would be on the same time anywhere in the world. This is a gorgeous watch much prettier than the pictures show, in excellent shape with only a few minor scratches on the back.Movement looks like new, and runs like the day it was made keeping excellent time for a mechanical watch. I have run it from time to time and love to show it off for it always starts up an interesting conversation. Rare watch for any watch or WWII collector.
