What is this?

#1 Post by Gabe » Tue Jan 08, 2019 12:47 pm

I thought this might be a Senior 418, but that's model's really more square than rectangular.

This is a 4/0 485 from 1930:

It's a Legionnaire 405.

I thought that was an outstanding buy on eBay today. (I swung and missed).

Thank you (as always), Bryan!

For some reason, I cannot find this in Bruce Shawkey's Elgin Wristwatches book, but I do see it in a 1928 Elgin ad in the Wilkes-Barre Record newspaper at https://www.newspapers.com/clip/5374503 ... _elgin_ad/.
