USMC-RECON0321

WWII USMC Theater made Precimax Wristwatch - Dragon, EGA and 1st Mar Div.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Got this from a guy who made a trade for a pile of antiques and this was mixed in on the trade, so I don't have any history on it, but thought it would be an interesting piece to take to the SOS. My guess would be a theater made watchband and the watch itself I would assume is military related with it showing the 24 hour timeline.

 

Appreciate any info.

 

Thanks Troy

Very cool piece, 1st Marines late 1945-46 China piece. You should have plenty of interest from those who collect China Marine items.


I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after.

I did wind the watch and it still works. No manufactured markings obviously, what material would the band be made from?

Sliver maybe ? The stuff produced during this time was not cheaply made

As said above very nice piece! Are their any silver makers marks inside the watch band?

Just for info, a lot of those bands were produced in the Philippines just after WWII. In fact one craftsman (Olongapo) is world famous for unit / insignia type bands produced during the Vietnam War and is still producing them today. A buddy, with the Secret Service, showed me the Olongapo he had made, a year or so ago, with their tactical unit insignia on it.

Dirk,

 

No markings that I could find.

Interesting. I've been there when we still had a large military presence there in the late 80's and had a few things made. It was amazing what they could make in just a few hours and for very little money.
