WW2 R.A.F./R.A.A.F. Jaeger LeCoultre, bomb aimers and navigators watch. Jaeger LeCoultre manufacture. The case back outer is stamped with the British military broad arrow mark, together with the letters “G.S.T.P 280306 XX”. Working order, with leather uniform strap. Scarce.For applications where absolute accuracy and total reliability were paramount, a relatively small number of high-grade watches were ordered from several of Switzerland’s finest makers, the most celebrated of these being IWC and Jaeger LeCoultre. The G.S.T.P initials represent the words “General Service Trade Pattern”The British government was equipping the armed forces with wristwatches as standard. RAF navigators generally found it more convenient to use pocket watches, as these could be placed flat on the charts from which they were working and indeed, the very size of the watch itself meant that it could be more easily consulted in a dimly lit bomber fuselage than its wrist worn equivalent. When used in this context, this must actually be one of the few applications in which the pocket watch was perceived as being superior to the wristwatch and its use as a navigator’s instrument continued long after the wristwatch had generally taken over as the choice of other bomber crew personnel.
