Elgin Mens Windup 19 Jewells
This windup is a jewel, vintage with very, very little wear, an alligator band and yellow gold highlights. It's working and that second hand just glides effortlessly. It is probably fifty years old if it's a day.
The kind of watch your grandfather would have worn every single day, and placed carefully on the nightstand at night.
Elgin made the finest watches in the US, comparable to the Swiss, in the little town of Elgin, Illinois.
