Re: Elgin watch boxes ID

Here are additional pics of the boxes. The smaller one is the oldest and is likely as Magpie suggests, 20s. The larger one is still early 30s. Magpie, your box looked like it had some metal on the rim, is that right? Would the use of metal mean later vintage than my larger one? If so, the larger of ...

Re: Was the Gladiator made in both men's and lady's sizes?

Interesting, I'm not sure that what you have is a Gladiator, especially if it take a 13 mm strap. My 1930 Gladiator below takes a 16mm strap. My watch is also different from what you've ID'd as a Gladiator. I think yours might be a Lone Eagle.

Re: NAWCC National in York

While attending a regional meet doesn't make me an expert on the national meet, I was surprised that sellers there were generally NOT using PayPal. I found only one seller using PayPal and other forms of payment (e.g. Square that accepts credit cards). Very odd.

Re: 1926 ladies Gruen

Thanks both. The eBay bracelet is gone already! Put a WGF filagree on it, looks great! Could use couple sets of clasps for a couple 12 mm fixed lug Hamiltons of my wife's now.

I was on gruenwristwatches site thats where I got the approximate 1926 date.
