Tank, just noticed that you are a fellow Cincinnatian!

That model Elgin is a great looking watch and yours looks like it is in great shape. And that bracelet is a perfect match.

Starting the week off with this recent acquisition. The watch arrived about two weeks ago. I tried a black leather strap, then a brown, looked good, but lacking.
The Kreisler bracelet I purchased on a whim last week came in and after some cleaning and polishing it turned out to be a perfect match.

What a beautiful watch and love how the band blends into it.

An Elgin "Style 33" was on my wrist this morning for singing a Mozart mass at church:

Just got this in last night. Early 50s Lord Elgin Coronado. 14k case. Uses the 21 jewel 680. I put it on a flat ostrich leg strap.

Great new acquisition, Grumpy! I love the design of the Coronado, with that striking interplay of the lugs' shape and the dial detailing. (I'm so glad you bagged that one; I heard you were looking for one. ;) )

(Thanks for the compliments about my Sunday's watch! BTW, that band is very versatile; it's by Sturdy and is removable, so I can use it with many different watches.)

Thanks Grumpy, it's some of those great looking watches in your posts that have inspired me to look more closely at Elgin.

And yes I'm a fellow Cincinnatian! I'm in Western Hills.

A lot of nice watches this week!

For me today Wednesday 59' K-409 with an Gemex bracelet which was never issued this way.

This is another of the blind stems that is a "dickens" to get wound!
