Originally advertised as the "first waterproof watch" and "a watch that survived being thrown out of an airplane" both statement taken from Wittnauer sales literature.
An ALL PROOF was worn by Jimmie Mattern, a 1920-30 Adventurer who wore an allproof trying to circumnavigate the world in his plane "Century of Progress" only then crashing just outside Minsk.
Great example of a Vintage Wittnauer with lots of "Explorer" Heritage..
