AMERICA MARCHES TO VICTOR Y ON TIME They go to sea...on land! THIS strange land stretches monotonously to the hori zon. It flows in rippling waves when the wind blows. To be lost in its burning emptiness may mean death! That's why tanks of the desert are navigated, just as ships are, by the sun and stars, and by an extraordi nary timepiece called a master navigation watch. It's one of the instruments tank officers depend on to find their way in the desert. Despite the jolting of the tank, grinding sand, and temperatures as high as 140 degrees, the Hamilton master navigation watch keeps unbeliev ably steady time, month after month. Hamilton workers are proud that they are able to build these and many other precise timing instruments for the Government. It means that few Hamiltons can be made for civilians. But this experience promises a post war Hamilton that will more than live up to its repu tation as "The Watch of Railroad Accuracy." Hamilton Watch Company, 344 Columbia Ave., Lancaster, Pa. Hamilton'sexperience buildingwatches for railroadmen and precision instru ments for the Government insures greatest possible accuracy in all grades. TANK MEN depend on the Hamilton master navi gation watch, shown below, to help find where they are and where they're going.
