Re: WWII Elgin Canteen underwater watch

theres a yahoo club that is dedicated to these, they have a database of known examples.

the last year or two, they have started to be reproduced thou, so "be careful" and really do your home work.

Re: Identification Help

Yes, they are both Lord Elgin Dunbar models.

the black dial is a later version with a 23j movement, the white dial is the earlier 21j version.

good luck with the sale.

Re: Ladies Elgin 50's early 60's

Elgin Sea Maid, sold for $69.50 and was considered a nurse's watch. circa 1963

pry it, put some safety glasses on and use a razor blade to get in the seam and pry it open, you might have to take it slow and work around the edge of the case back little by little to get it moved.
