1940's Jardur Bezelmeter
Jardur Escadrille member, Captain Donald F. Walton's 1940’s Bezelmeter 960:
This 36mm Jardur Bezelmeter 960 series military vintage aviation watch houses the legendary 71 Valjoux movement, a testament to its enduring quality. While a light inspection revealed a missing movement screw and sweep second hand, the heart – the original 71 Valjoux – remains in impressive working condition.
Still proudly displaying the "Pilgrim Electric Corp" engraving, this 17-jewel, hand-wound, 2-button, 9-column chronograph movement, with only a few small repairs, will be ready to tick through many more chapters.
The user of this tool watch was Captain Donald F. Walton. As you will see, his military career exemplifies dedication and unwavering service to everything aviaiton.
Following his 1940 graduation from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a BA in Aeronautical Engineering, Captain Walton entered the Navy in 1941, briefly contributing to Lockheed before serving as a naval aviator during World War II. Based in Florida and Virginia, he distinguished himself flying or being associated with the Martin PBM Mariner patrol aircraft, S3F1, A2F-1 Intruder (A-6), N2S Stearman, N3N, SNV Valiant, SNJ Texan, PBY Catalina, OS2U Kingfisher, JRF-6 Goose, The Howard GH-1, J4F-1 Widgeon, OV-10A Bronco, A-5 Vigilante, and the Piper J-3 Cub.
Honorably discharged in 1945, he was recalled the following year, embarking on a diverse post-war career within the Navy. Captain Walton held key roles in the Naval Bureau of Aeronautics, honed his leadership and expertise through advanced education at the Naval Postgraduate School and Industrial College of the Armed Forces, and played pivotal roles in aircraft development as program manager for the A2F Grumman Intruder. Further leadership refinement came through the Armed Forces Staff College, and he capped his distinguished career as the Navy representative at the Ohio North American Aviation Plant. Captain Walton's legacy is one of technical prowess, leadership, and enduring commitment to the Navy's mission.
