Just got this in. Late 50s Lord Elgin Crestwood. 14K white gold case. Haven't cracked it open yet to see the movement. My guess is the 770, maybe the 750?

Grumpy, that is nice looking.

I like the documentation that can be found on the watches, these ads many times have a lot of insight.

Thanks, it had a grayish leather strap on it that I thought looked pretty good but I came across this never worn vintage strap in an antique mall and thought for four bucks........ Now I wish they had more. Amazed at how the reddish brown brings out the colors of the watch.

Bryan, that Crestwood is a looker for sure.

And yes, your band is the factory band for the Edgewater.

Hamilton Webster for today. One of my first restorations, and one of my favourites.
