Lord Elgin from the Horizon Look line.

Carl, not sure they can pull off the brush effect. I'd wait for another dial as well.

Finally got around to repairing the bent hairsping on this one. It was a frustrating one. I’m carrying it to check my work. Nothing too exciting but it’s different and is a factory cased Elgin.
1934ish Elgin coin watch.

Little Catching Up! :)

Yesterday, I had on the 62' Accumatic A-400, back from a cleaning from Dan with an aftermarket Kreisler bracelet with the leather inserts.

I love the way the ends of the bracelet meld with the lugs on the watch!
That's an awesome pairing Pat... and the photo is excellent too!

Early LCD model I've not seen before. Amazing that the incandescent light bulb still lights up!

Today I had the another watch from 62', the Thin-O-Matic T-503 with the original "two-tone" Champion bracelet. I think the only bracelet I have Jim does not have yet? :o
Great watch and a great photo. :D
