Links to Elgin ads I've found, bought, or copied from Genejockey, Diveboy, and others :lol:

I got these from going through Life Magazine on Google. Halfway through, I got smart, and included a screenshot of the date.

Here's the hodgepodge of some original work and what I've copied.

Bryan, those Elgin ads are great! I haven't gotten thru them all yet but I'm enjoying them.
It makes you stop to think a moment and reflect on just how much Elgin spent on advertising each year.
My favorite is the "Horizon style crystal revealing up to 33percent more of the dial!" What? What does that mean? That is "Ad speak".
