From the 1942 catalogue. Elgin didn't use names until the early 50s. So it is just known as a Lord Elgin 4608.

Latest acquisition; an early '40s Lord Elgin 21 jewel 559 movement. The dial is a little rough but the movement and case are in very good condition. I'd love to know the model name. It's one of those that pictures don't do it justice.

Thanks Grumpy, so I accidentally fell into your 1942 catalog theme.

Special day, so I went with a special watch.
The Lord Elgin Saturn from 1957 with its unique gold disc on the crystal. To top it off not only is the watch and disc solid gold so is the period bracelet.
