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.

Re: Dodson-Sutton

this brings up an interesting "thing" if Wadsworth owned the patent for the case in 1938 and Elgin brought Wadsworth in 1950, then technically Elgin owned the case patents (14 years at the time from 1938 to 1952) for Hamilton watch cases. Yes, you can run but you can't hide from Elgin, guess we cou...
