Philip Van Horn Weems (March 29, 1889 – June 2, 1979) was a United States Navy officer, inventor of navigational instruments and methods, including the Weems Plotter and the Second Setting Watch and author of navigational textbooks. Mr. Weems invented the second setting watch function in an endeavor to tackle air navigation. The Weems Second Setting Watch begat the far more famous Lindbergh Angle Hour Watch and both are now regarded as milestones in the horological stream of aviation history. They soon became mere technological cul de sacs, each with a practical lifespan of only a decade or so; electronics would supersede, just as they would with diving watches. But this makes them no less important…or covetable. These are absolutely and positively iconic, and no collection should be without at least one of them.
