This is Stan Czubernat's 3rd book in his "Trench Watches of the Great War" series. 


341 pages will document that Charles Leon Depollier truly created the world's first waterproof wrist watch with 


the 1918 Waltham Depollier "Field & Marine" Waterproof  Watch followed closely by the 1919 Waltham Depollier


 "THERMO" Waterproof Watch. The 4 different waterproof crown designs developed in the house of Depollier


 during the Great War years will be covered in detail. Evidence included is the complete trial transcript of the


 1919 lawsuit between Charles Depollier vs Mortimer Golden. This is Charles Depollier's fascinating first hand


 account of how he developed waterproof wrist watch technology 8 years before Rolex in cooperation with


 high ranking officers of the United States Army Signal Corps Engineering & Research Division. 


Depollier's waterproof wrist watch case was independently tested in Washington D.C. by the United States 


National Bureau of Standards for its waterproof ability, it passed their tests with flying colors. All paper 


lawsuit exhibits from both parties are included, every page. Two official United States War Department 


reports corroborate Depollier's sworn court testimony. In one of these reports Two Star Major General George


 Squier informs the United States Secretary of War , Mr. Newton Baker, that the "watch could actually run for


several weeks under water".  Mr. Baker reported directly to President Woodrow Wilson. You will also read the


 correspondence of high ranking. U.S. Army officers discussing Depollier's waterproof wrist watch technology and


 how it would solve many of their problems in 1918. Also included are the Waltham Depollier trench watch


 advertisements and the non-waterproof Waltham Depollier military watches produced during the Great War era.
