Part of me wishes I would have splurged.
I snagged a face pic of one of these off Ebay. It had the inner caseback which, to my shame, I didn't snag. I have it as "24027", but I think it was supposed to be "2402Y".

It is 2404 y
Here is mine I finally acquired.

I like that one. It's like an Elgin Spur.

Thin thin F 4431. Why have one when you can have two. Seriously I have only seen 3 of these including the two I have.

Are those lugs fixed or swiveling? Looks like the latter.

Those are gorgeous, BTW!!

Swivel lugs. I’ll take a wrist shot later. They wear large with the lugs.

Just reread this thread. So many awesome Thin Thin models out there. Carl of course, might well have the most extensive gold Thin Thin horde in Elgin collecting circles.

Anyway, just to confirm, this is in fact an 9816 variant. I don't think these are the correct hands, but I the ones I have are rusted. This is a black dial with a lacquer finish. Everyone I have has aged poorly. This is the best of the worst. Still, all in all, looks damn sharp imho.
