Offered for sale is a vintage Lord Elgin wrist watch, ca.1950s. This watch features a solid 14k yellow gold Deco style case in a stepped design, a 21-jewel calibre 559 manual wind movement, and a two-toned silver satin dial with applied non-numeric hour markers and a subsidiary seconds hand at the 6 o’clock position. The case is in very good condition overall, showing signs of occasional wear. The movement is in excellent running order. The dial is in excellent original condition and shows a patina appropriate for its age. Overall, a presentable watch that is ready to wear in style or present as a wonderful gift to a person who appreciates fine timepieces. Size: 23mm wide x 32mm lug-to-lug. Signed case, dial, and movement. Fitted with a brown leather strap. I believe the Lord Elgin watches of the mid-20th century were some of the best watches made in America, and are very much underappreciated by collectors today. You can own this high grade, attractive, highly collectible American-made wrist watch, for only $699.99.
