Re: Electrics "Made in USA"

Many of the Elgin thin thin line of automatics say
Made in America
On them. I just assumed they were proud of the fact.
Could it be so they could export them without have to do any dial variations?

Re: timing machine?

I have one of them and it works well.
For the money it is a great tool to have.
Before I used a microphone and a phone app.
I say buy one.

Re: 14K Horizon

I know I have this one. I’ll look and see if I have a name with it.
If not Diveboy, grumpyguy or jenejockey might know.

Re: Lord Elgin Something of interest?

Well so much for the 18k thin thin. There has been one on eBay for months that I made a few offers on. Some actually pretty close to the asking price in my opinion. We talked about it on here and boom it sold.....

Nice grumpy. I like the milburns. I have a pair of them.
The shape really is unique and I like the way they fit me.
