    EXTREMELY SCARCE Captain's Dual Time Zone Pocket Watch with Aluminum Case! Ca 1869
    RARE AND HISTORICALLY INTERESTING! CAPTAIN’S DUAL TIME ZONE WATCH WITH A VERY RARE ALUMINUM CASE, MARKED WARRANTED ALUMINUM. There was a time in the mid 1800’s when Aluminum was more precious and costly than Gold. History has Napolean III serving his most honored guests with Aluminum tableware, while the less exalted attendees had to make do with silver! The use of Aluminum in Watch Cases is rare indeed. The use of this Metal in a Seafaring Timepiece is of interesting Historical note because of Aluminum’s oxidation resistance. This is the only timepiece of this type I have ever encountered. It has a “Warranted Aluminum” stamp that indicates the Material was still rare when the case was produced. The Movement dates to Ca. This would have been in a transitional period when Aluminum was probably still more precious than silver, but not ultra rare and valuable. The cost of producing Aluminum dropped rapidly as electrostatic collection methods were improved throughout the 1860’s and 70’s. With the advent of more modern electricity generation the cost of production and thus the cost of the metal itself dropped to a level where commercial industrial uses were possible. Nice Porcelain Dial with sub-seconds and 2 Time Zones on a single Train. Only very minor blems. 57mm Diameter Aluminum Case with some wear to plating. Case marked as: “Warranted Aluminum”, with a Crown. Hinge is perfect and tight, spring is good and firm, and cover does not open past 90 degrees. Cuvette Marked Double Timer, Full Jewelled. Total weight: 136.39 grams. Movement Serial number:443D65. Case Serial number: 9875. Condition: Pictures show condition, more pictures upon request. Overall Excellent condition with minor wear and signs of age as noted. Minor Blems to dial, minor loss of plating or simply rubbing to oxidation on case. Minute hand shows tarnish. Solder on bridge from old repair. The Movement was cleaned and adjusted. Runs and keeps time. The item “EXTREMELY SCARCE Captain’s Dual Time Zone Pocket Watch with Aluminum Case!
