    And Incabloc was not the first shock protection device used - there quite many attempts at solutions already in the 1920s. Shock protection became common in the late 40s and early 1950s, but it was definitely available a lot earlier.

    sure Breguet patented Para-chute in 1790
    WYLER
    Invented 'Incaflex' in 1927
    and
    Incabloc was patented in 1933.

    So.
    Please post links/patents to Mido and West End or other used in production shock proof protections prior to 1933
    or prior to my statement /dates.

    Sincerely

    Hi Matt, I really like your new watch!
    Can you get the back off, and let us see the engine? The case has a ten-sided back, and it could be a Borgel case maybe?
    Bob.

    Shock resistance was, but "Super Shockresist" is actually a tradename for a particular brand of shock device, which I believe was sold in the late 40's/early 50's.

    Watches are like buses.............

    @ Adam: I just felt to correct your statement that Incabloc was not implemented prior to the 1940's. My Wyler (1935) has an early Incabloc device, Mido used it in Multiforts (1937, I think) and West End Watch Co. introduced it as the first mass producer in series production (1937, they state).

    And it is not the first time that I remind you of the Silena shock protection exclusively used in the Gothic Jar Proof (1925).

    So your statement was not correct. It would be really nice if you'd correct it.

    This might help date the watch (after confirmation, of course)

    I think the shock resist on this one is by Erismann-Schinz but I may be wrong

    That is the AS 1187, a very handsome train bridge on there!
    Not a Borgel case then, nice watch though Matt.
    Edit- Roland's examples of the 1187 have incabloc though, yours may be a newer addition by the maker.
    Circa 1950's to me.

    Edit- Tomcat has pointed out that the 1187 is wrong, and I will re-correct (is that a word?) to the AS 1287.
    Bob.
