Lord Elgin 2 Facet

The Lord Elgin was the pinnacle of the Elgin Wristwatch line and they were made in 19, 21 and 23 jewel versions.  They were simply the best the factory could produce and they have stood the test of time...no pun intended.  This particular Lord Elgin is a very nice 21 jewel that is housed in a yellow gold-filled case with a faceted crystal that articulates like a roof with the peak traversing the width of the watch from the 3 o'clock position to the 9 o'clock position.  It measures 23mm in width, by 37mm lug to lug, by 9mm thick, and it takes a 16mm band.  We have fitted it with a nice dark brown croco grain band.  The yellow gold-filled case bears a personalization on the back that says "Dick Charles 6-'43".  A mid 1940's treasure that is running, winding, and keeping time just as it did back in 1943.  The lugs protruded in a stylized "U" shape from the main case body for a unique look.  Now take a look at the spectacular dial.  The main portion is a rich gold but this is set off by a narrow silvered chapter band bearing the minute markings.  It also has an inset seconds bit, at the 6 o"clock position, that mimics the shape of the case.  This is a great looking watch that can be worn by a man or a woman, even though it started life as a gentleman's watch.  It is a great watch for not much moola...don't miss it!  It comes with our one year warranty for parts and labor.
