OK, here’s John C Duebers answer to the challenge, some may even say, the call. He was a character and it seems he was always up for the fight, never one to lay down and quit, he used the same model, basically, and added 2 more jewels, made it an open face and added “Special Adjusted” to enter his creation into the new requirement market. Do we know exactly what “Special Adjusted” means? Frankly I don’t 😆 but it was enough to be qualified as a RR watch under the new regs.
Hampdens are pretty underrated by many collectors, but they are extremely good timekeepers & tough as nuts, that along with the interesting history of JCD, make them, at least for me, one of the most fascinating of the American PW manufacturers.
This one, I think it’s funny, it’s the same thing as above, just that now it qualified, freakin hilarious that guy, the bombasity For me, that is what makes the American watches so damn interesting, there was a war raging, a time war, kinda like Dr Who, Paul knows who that is
