The Newman was the first portable watchclock of American design to be sold in the U.S. It was also the first portable watchclock to receive the Underwriters Laboratories' listing and to be approved by Factory Mutual. It remains a watchclock approved by insurance companies worldwide.
Reliability is built in, thanks to the Newman's highly accurate, eight-day shock-resistant movement and 11-jeweled escapement. And it requires winding only once per week. The Newman provides a 24-hour record directly embossed on a paper time dial by means of raised numerals on the recording keys. It's Detex tough with a die-cast aluminum housing, heat-treated crystal, and a riveted and reinforced case of harness leather.
