As you may know Elgin was the largest producer of timepieces in America and they were in business for 100 years at the factory in Elgin, Illinois. They produced a wonderful line of clocks, pocket watches, and wristwatches, many of which are still in use today. This is not only a testament to their technical prowess, but also to their classic styling. This particular gentleman's Elgin is the "DeLuxe," as you can see from the name on the dial. This one is quite elegant, not only because of its silvered dial and stylized gold numerals, but also because of the way the case embraces the movement. It is a 17 jewel (caliber 555) movement in a gold-filled case, sporting a seconds bit at the 6 o'clock position, the shape of which mimics the overall tonneau case shape. The case measures 25mm in width (not including the crown) by 36mm lug-to-lug by 11mm thick (including the domed crystal). We have fitted it with a dark brown croco band to complete the look. The watch is in wonderful condition and is a size that can easily be worn by a man or a woman. Our head watchmaker has it running like the day it was made back in 1945. Our one year warranty for parts and labor will give you the confidence to acquire this elegant watch for you or someone you love.
