fbobberts@... male from Albuquerque, NM has been miraculously keeping a false statement on the top of "Pulp Fiction-What watch?" forum ( http://forums.timezone.com/index.php?t=tree&goto=1970674&rid=0 ) for years.
What had happened to enot1 numerous diligent replies to above-mentioned fbobberts research? Specifically a comment enot1 made about 'Pulp Fiction'watch having a winding stem at 3 o'clock, not at 12 o'clock as on Elgin watch (University of North Carolina) posted by fbobberts.We want to state "once and for all" that Quentin Tarantino's prop in 'Pulp Fiction' is a LANCET (Swiss company) WWI Trench watch. Letters 'L' (first) and 'T' (last) of the word 'LANCET' around 12 o'clock became clearly visible during one of enot1 numerous empiric findings.
But after watching Chapter 12 (Captain Koon's Story) zoomed in (8X), and on slow speed (S4X) over Martin Luther King's long week-end of year 2007, Enot1 found out that Quentin Tarantino's prop in 'Pulp Fiction' is a Swiss LANCET WWI Trench watch. Letters 'L' (first) and 'T' (last) of the word 'LANCET' were visible
around 12 o'clock.
Here is the video:
Now, that should have been used as a correct prop in 'Pulp Fiction'... In 1914 U.S. War Department had purchased 7 Jewel Wrist Watch Elgins for the cavalry branch of the service. Check out Elgin 7j Ad from 1914(http://www.enotyprishli.com/ep/Galleries/tabid/64/Default.aspx)
Here is WWI 'Elgin' watch cleaned, oiled and calibrated! And in our posession now!
