Great Elgin! I'm sure that watch would enjoy some good music!

For Monday my work in progress.... ;)

The 56' Transcontinental A. I have parts of the bracelet I want to extend to fit my larger wrists. Also, I have a spare dial and will be getting it refinished to clean this up.

Some of these are a little tougher to rebuild than others. :) There are a few around for sale over $700 and the dials are not in good shape.

It will be nice when it is done.
