History of the All-Proof case: In 1918 the Wittnauer All-Proof watch case was introduced. It was touted as the world’s first waterproof, shock-proof and anti-magnetic watch [case]. [The Rolex Oyster was introduced in 1926.] In the years that followed, it proved its mettle by being: dropped from airplanes; thrown from tall buildings; taken to steaming jungles, and brought to the highest mountain elevations. It was used by countless soldiers in WWII. In 1933 flying solo, James Mattern flew his plane, the “Century of Progress,” loaded Wittnauer watches from New York to Siberia. A forced landing brought him short of his goal of beating the 1931 around-the-world speed record held by Wiley Post and Harold Gatty. Mattern however, praised his Wittnauer All-Proof: “It gives me great pleasure to advise you that my Wittnauer All-Proof Watch was my only constant companion on my ’round the world solo flight, and it survived all hardships. It is a crashproof timepiece par excellence. After my plane crashed and I had to wade and swim in some of the rivers it proved absolutely waterproof. It kept up a true performance when I was lost to civilization for many days. It was a sensation with the Eskimos…who considered it something super-natural. It personifies mechanical perfection heretofore unknown to me, and when I reached New York it was correct to the minute. I banged it all around. It was dropped on concrete a number of times – still it keeps ticking away. I should not have believed that such a watch could be built, but my experience has shown me that too much cannot be said about this wonderful All-Proof timepiece which I recommend for hard usage.” Among other renditions of the one-piece case were the Longines "Admiral," and the LeCoultre "Master Mariner." Many watchmakers produced one-piece cases including Mido and Benrus. One piece cases are colloquially referred to as "front-loaders." II. A Tutorial of Handling the One-Piece Watch Case This is a link to a tutorial on the split-stem system used on vintage watches with the one-piece (front-loader) case design. III. A Description of the One-Piece Case System The casing system utilized a solid case with a split-winding-stem and a removable plastic crystal. The cases came in a variety of sizes and required a special compression spanner wrench (illustrated below; also note instructions for use thereon) to remove and install the crystals V. The Longines-Wittnauer Crystals The nominal diameter, for example, of the Admiral crystals used in the Longines-Wittnauer and LeCoultre applications are #1200= 30.55mm; #1225= 31.11mm and; #1260=32.05mm. N.B.: Plastic crystals tend to shrink over time so it shouldn't be surprising if a new old stock crystal (which has not been under compression) would be slightly larger than the old crystal which may have been under compression for decades. It is important to be certain the spanner wrench provides sufficient compression when tightened. Dial: su dial es de color champaña y tiene diamantes marcando las horas.
