Signal Corps Watch Collection
Gregg has asked me to send the Pic's of the Signal Corps Watches... I believe this is all that were made... I have contemplated cleaning them up but I just can't bring myself to do it... I think that they should just stay the way they are...

Thanks John, they sure look good for their age and thanks for sharing.I have a interest in signal corp clocks, the kind that would have been used in a communications room.
Thanks again for sharing these.

Thank you John!

That is an impressive collection. To my knowledge, not much has been published about the WWI U.S. Army Signal Corps wristwatches, let alone an image of each brand.

What sort of movements do they have? 15 jewels each?

Best regards,
Greg

On the above forum, there is a discussion of the military watches of WWI, to which our forum was linked. What's interesting about that, is the post of "Harold", who mentioned having a Tavannes Signal Corps watch. So, we may have another brand.

I sent Harold an email to see if he can find the time to post an image of his watch over here.

Best regards,

Greg
