In 1936, the Czechoslovakian army needed precision instruments for their aviator pilots since the country was extremely wealthy at that time. The government of Czechoslovakia decided to order watches from 3 major Swiss producers because one alone could not cover the order. The selected brands were Longines, Lemania, and Eterna.

"All Majetek watches from the three brands used a black dial. There are only 2 Majetek watches with a white dial in the world, and this is one of them," as stated in the underlined quote.

The first owner was a pilot in the Czech Air Force until the start of World War II. He was then transferred to an operations base and began working in a control tower overseeing pilots and air operations for the next few years. He said, "all my friends had their watches with a black dial." This information was confirmed by a collector who purchased the watch from the original owner in 1986 in Poland and then kept it in his personal collection for over 30 years in Slovakia until I managed to purchase the watch for my personal collection in 2016.
