Military Chromed-Nickel 24-Hour Navigational Pocket Watch, "Navigational Master GCT", model 4992B, Hamilton, Lancaster, PA, ca.1942

Product Description:

Type - AN 5740 (made to U.S. Army/Navy specifications), Size 16, Model 4992B referred to the beautiful damascened Hamilton movement with 22 jewels, adjusted to 6 positions and temperature, the case inscribed "An 5470 - 1, Stock No. 8TAA-966000-44, MFR'S PART NO. 33106, CONTRACT NUMBER CA-36-038-ORD-19668, SERIAL NO. AF-56-3304, HAMILTON WATCH COMPANY"

This watch was intended for use in aircraft. White dial numerals and letters easy to read against a black background. The watch was capable of setting to a second time zone without opening the bezel by pulling up on the pendant. This was to precisely coordinate operations with other aircraft, and often the setting was to Greenwich Mean Time or "GCT" (Greenwich Civil Time). With this 24-hour dial the hour hand made only one revolution within 24 hours. The hour, minute and seconds hands were all coordinated so that a second time zone could be set accurately and quickly without opening the dial cover and using only the pendant.
