Response to aircraft art deco style watch regarding photos

- - a Louis Newmark one. Newmark were a small maker who tended to either buy in signed items from outside sources and/or parts , movements, cases, dials and assemble them. The movement is likely German or European and pin pallet. It's rather a sweet looking wee watch, the case has been "rounded" at the step to make the look popular at the time and to allow use of a larger round movement within the tank style case. happy.gif

Newmark were later "kind of" absorbed by Services Watches - nothing to do with the Armed Services though - and eventually the marque disappeared completely during the Quartz revolution. Try Google on Louis Nerwmark and see what comes up, haven't been there for a while.

No proof exists, but it's believed the "Timex" version of AIRCRAFT were simply badged to an order from Newmark for sale via Newmark's dealer network, mostly small independent jewllers and watch sellers.

Try also a Google on something like "Ebauche Marks" and see if you can trace "EK" from there. A Timex "AIRCRAFT" one from the 50's period would have a movement signed "SCOTLAND" normally.

HTH a bit, let us know how you get on with your research? happy.gif
