1952 Elgin Shelby Back On my Wrist

#1 Post by liveinthefens » Mon Jan 09, 2017 10:51 am

The last of the repaired trilogy is this 1952 Elgin Shelby.

Which turns out only needed a good service and a new crown.
It's got a very domed crystal so will have to take care of it.

I will have to keep my eye out for the correct expanding bracelet if I can find one.
Does anyone have an ad for this one?

Well another saved from the scrap heap.
