For some reason this leapt of the page at me:

"increased boost for take-off controlled by clockwork mechanism"

I was under the impression that the take off power levels were available to the pilot if he so chose.

But apparently not.

It was only present on the DB 601A and Aa. There was a special 1-minute 'boosted' WEP of 1100/1175PS above normal 5-min WEP of 990/1045PS to be used up to around 1000-1500 meter altitude. A clockwork made sure the boost disengaged after 1 minute of use. It wasn't present on subsequent DB 601N, E models and the rest of the DB 60x engines.

I presume the presence of such 1-min WEP was due to the DB 601's use in early Heinkel 111 bombers to assist at take off with heavy loads, and the 1-min clockwork was fitted to make sure the pilot, who had his hands full at takeoff, doesn't forget to disengage this overload condition for the engine.
