  1. Hello Tom Bulan, Thank you very much for your detailed answer. Very interesting to have also learned about the current specifications, but I am looking for the military specifications for watches from 1914 to 1945. I have attached a few pictures of the watches. I hope this works with the upload. Best regards, Herold https://ibb.co/cNPKwDx https://ibb.co/HzjmLHx https://ibb.co/mXpJ23T
  2. Hello everyone, spinynorman gave me the tip to post my questions in this section because it is about military watches. I have already posted my concern in the pocket watches section, so I am just linking to the post there. The questions are not about the watches themselves, I know (almost) everything about them. I am interested in the rules and regulations that were used at the time to ensure that these watches were accepted into military service. Maybe someone from the communitiy knows something about this? I have already searched the British National Archives
  3. Hi spinynorman, thanks for the tip about the military section. I thought it was only about replicas of military watches, because it says "military style watches" in the description. I will put a link to my contribution here. But first i have to find a proper hosting service. so far i have never worked with such services. all beginnings are difficult many greetings, Herold
  4. Thanks Paulboy and Roger! I have a technical question: Is it possible to upload images directly from the hard drive here? Or do I have to take the detour via a hosting service? Best Regards, Herold
  5. Oh, sorry, I didn't mean the time standard, of course. But thanks anyway for your answer and your explanations. I meant the standards that the watches had to meet in order to be accepted into military service. Surely there were requirements and tests that had to be passed according to set criteria? For the rules for the HS 3 watches in WW2, it was probably the Hydrographic Department. But who set the rules in WW1 for the MK IV and MK V watches, I haven't found out yet. And I would be interested to know which tests the clocks had to pass. For example, the French "Norme AIR 7620
  6. Hello everyone, I am a private watch collector from Germany with no business interests. I am particularly interested in Zenith pocket watches from the early beginnings until about 1950. Admittedly, this is a very narrow spectrum, but it can also be very broad the deeper you dig. And because I'm not getting anywhere digging into the military watches Zenith supplied to the British Army, I've registered here. Maybe I can find some facts and figures about the watches here. I have already started an initial enquiry here: https://thewatchforum.co.uk/index.php?/topic/148174-questions-about-
  7. Good afternoon, As a collector of old Zenith watches, I am not only interested in the technology, but also in the history of these watches. As you know, Zenith started supplying their watches to countries all over the world at the end of the 19th century. Larger orders from institutions first came from the railway companies of some countries, later government orders were added, especially for the military. From around 1914, Zenith also supplied the British government with Mark IV A pocket watches for the RFC and later for the RNAS. From 1916, Mark V watches were also added. I have been res
