Elgin produced watches in Elgin, Illinois (a Chicago suburb), for over 100 years. They were the largest and most prolific of the American manufacturers and the "Lord Elgin" was their premier product. It was produced in 19, 21, and 23 jewels versions. This particular Elgin is their best a 23 jewel beauty that is very cool watch in more ways than one. First the 23 jewel, caliber 770 movement is a thing of mechanical beauty, second the "Wedge" shaped asymmetrical case is very striking, and third the stylized "arrowhead" markers are very unusual with a double "Arrowheads" at the 12 and forth the jet black dial is very handsome. If you take a look at the "Zoom-In" photos you can really appreciate how nice it is. You will also notice the seconds bit has a "Cross Hair" delineation that suits the whole look. In short this is one killer wristwatch from the 1960s. The case is white gold filled measuring 34mm at the top tapering to 22mm at the bottom, by 34mm lug to lug, and is running like the proverbial top. This handsome timepiece is in fantastic original condition and just waiting for a man's wrist to adorn. Remember all of our timepieces come with our famous one year warranty, for parts and labor, so that you may buy with confidence.
