Art Deco, 1920s to 1930s
Rare antique Elgin wrist watch with detailed enameled blue dial, sunken seconds dial, Roman numeral hours and engraved case. It is gorgeous. Works very well. We have added a new old stock ribbon type band which is from the same time period. The band is cloth with grosgrain type pattern.
The dial is gorgeous, the case is beautiful, the band is like new.
Movement is manual, marked with the serial number 12651804, Safety Pinion and Elgin Natl Watch Co. The serial number indicates a manufacturing date between 1906 and 1916. This is an early wrist watch, quite scarce.
Size is 0 and Grade is 320.
Overall lug to lug measurement is 1 1/2". Case is 1 5/16" wide not including the crown and 3/8" thick at the center of the glass crystal which is pristine.
Condition is excellent, watch runs and keeps excellent time. There is no damage to the dial. There is some wear to the back of the case consistent with age and normal use. It is mostly covered by the band which simply goes through and under the case.
Case is White Metal, perhaps Gold Filled, made by S. W. C. Co and market Starwhite.
This information is intended to help you understand our sizing methods.
Please note many small measurements are in millimeters. It is a Jewelry Industry standard for accuracy.
You can download and print the Ring Sizing Chart. Make sure to follow the directions closely for best accuracy. Most rings can be sized unless otherwise noted. Cost of sizing is not included, please inquire with ring information and size required for an estimate.
Our model's hand is approximately 5" wide or 12 cm as seen in this image:
We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
