TIMER'S MITTEN Filed Nov. 13, 1936 Patented Dec. 28, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT [OFFICE 3 Claims.

My invention relates; to novel timers mittens having means for carrying a stop watch within a mitten in such a: manner that the face of the watch will be visible, to provide novel means for retaining the stop watch in place in the mitten; and to provide novel means for adjusting the mitten for use for other purposes when the stop watch is removed; and to provide novel means for carrying and facilitating the use of a'pencil by persons using mittens of this type. I attain these and other objects of my invention by the mittens il lustrated in which:-

Figure 1 is a, view of the palm of. the left mitten which carries the stop watch, with the flap I9 open and flap I5 fastened in closed position with the Watch contained within the mitten;

Fig. 2 is a similar view of a portion of the mitten with flap I5 in open position and with the watch removed; and

Fig. 3 is a view of a portion of the palm of the same mitten with the flap I9 fastened in place by the snap button.

Like numerals designatelike parts in each of the several views.

Referring to the accompanying drawing, the mittens each have a fabric wrist portion I to which are attached the straps 2 and 3 which are adjustably secured to each other by a suitable buckle 4. The wrist portion I also has an elastic member 5 attached to its under side to tighten the mitten about the wrist of the user. The fabric portion I is attached to the portion 10f the mitten at 6. The mitten has a separate leatherthumb 8 with fabric lining, a fabric back 9, andfabric lining Illa. In the leather palm of the mitten there is a circular opening I0 through which the face of a timers stop watch Il may be viewed. The mitten has a double line of stitching Ila, close to the edge II of the circular opening to protect the edge from becoming frayed.

I also provide a semi-circular line of stitching l2, spaced about one fourth of an inch distance from the edge I!) of the circular opening; this line of stitching I2 fastening the leather portion "I of the mitten to the fabric lining IIla, thus providing means for supporting and holding the rim of the watch II after it is inserted through the opening l3a. I provide a small flap I5 with a small aperture I4 through which the knurled stem of the stop watch may project to permit the user to stop the watch. The flap I5 is attached with a line of stitching I6 at the edge of the opening I3a. This flap I5 has a snap fastener socket I 'I to releasably engage the snap fastener stud I8 in the accompanying drawing,

carriedonthe back of. the mitten, substantially as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawing.

I alsoprovide a leather flap Iiiwhich .is adapted toifold across the palm of the mitten and which carries snap fastener socket 2| which may be engaged with the snap fastenerstud I8 on the back of the mitten when the flap I5 is disengaged from that snap fastener stud, as when the watch is not carried. When the watch is used, the small fiap I5 is fastened to the snap fastener stud I8 and the flap will appear as shown in solid lines in Fig. 1. When the watch is to be removed or inserted, the flap I5 is unfastened from the snap fastener stud I8 as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 1 and Fig. 2, permitting the insertion of the watch through the slot I301, so that the watch face will appear through the circular opening I2, the flap I9 hanging loosely and unfastened, as shown in Fig. 2. When it is desired to use the mitten for other purposes than to carry a stop watch,

the flap I5 is unfastened and the watch removed and the large flap I9 is fastened to snap fastener stud I8 by its snap socket 2| so that the mitten will present the appearance shown in Fig. 3 of the drawing. In this condition it may be worn as a ski mitten or for other purposes when the watch is removed.

The watch is protected from cold weather so that the oil will not become congealed, the heat of the hand being conducive of this. The watch is in position for observation and for starting or stopping by the simple movement of the thumb and is held in such manner that the face of the watch is visible.- When it is not desirable to observe the face of the watch, the main flap I9 may be brought over the watch and snapped in place.

What I claim is:

1. In a' timers mitten, the combination of a mitten having a leather palm and a fabric lining, a circular opening in the leather palm of a size substantially corresponding to the face of a watch, and a semi-circular line of stitching securing the leather palm to the lining and spaced a sufficient distance from the edge of the aforesaid circular opening to allow room for the rim of a watch; a slit spaced from the circular opening and near the edge of the mitten for insertion of a watch in the space between the lining and the leather palm of the mitten until the face of the-watch is centered in the circular opening by the aforesaid semi-circular line of stitching; a small flap stitched to the palm of the mitten and adjacent the slit through which the watch is inserted, said flap having an opening for the knurled stem of a watch, and having a snap fastener socket, a snap fastener stud on the mitten positioned to engage the aforesaid snap fastener socket when the flap is in closed position, and a second and larger flap stitched to the palm of the mitten on the other side of the circular opening for the watch and adapted to be brought over said opening, said flap having a snap fastener socket engageable with the aforesaid snap fastener stud.

2. In a timers mitten, the combination of a mitten having a leather palm and a fabric lining, a circular opening in the leather palm of a size substantially corresponding to the face of a Watch, a semi-circular line of stitching securing the leather palm to the lining and spaced a suificient distance from the edge of the aforesaid circular opening to allow room for the rim of the watch; a slit for insertion of a watch in the space between the lining and the leather palm of the mitten until the face of the watch is centered in the circular opening by the aforesaid semi-circular line of stitching; a small flap stitched to the palm of the mitten and adjacent the slit through which the watch is inserted, said flap having an opening for the knurled stem of a watch, a snap fastener stud, and a second and larger flap stitched to the palm of the mitten on the other side of the circular opening for the watch and adapted to be brought over said opening, said flap having a snap fastener socket engageable with the aforesaid snap fastener stud.

3. In a timers mitten, the combination of a mitten having separate palm and lining members, a circular opening in the palm of a size substantially corresponding to the face of a stop watch, a semi-circular line of stitching securing the palm to the lining and spaced a sufficient distance from the edge of said opening to receive the rim of a watch; a slit for insertion of a watch between the palm and lining members, a small flap adjacent said slit and a second and larger flap stitched to the palm of the mitten beyond the circular opening and adapted to cover same, a fastener element for fastening the loose ends of either of the flaps to the mitten.
