Vintage ELGIN Shockmaster Mens Mechanical Wind Watch, 1950's, Excellent

225.00

Brand:  Elgin

Style:  Dress

Model:  Unknown

Movement:  This has a mechanical wind movement in it.  The movement was serviced right before I got the watch and I don't have a photo of it.  I don't want to take it out of the case because that requires me to remove the crown.  Since it was recently serviced I don't really want to do that.  I believe it's a Cal 687 Manual Wind but I'm not 100% sure exactly which movement it is.  If if makes a huge difference to you I can take it out but I would prefer not too.  The watch sets, runs and keeps decent time for a watch from the 1950's.

Case:  The case is gold plated or gold filled.  I believe it's 14k gf but that information is on the case back and to get to it I have to remove the crown and then remove the movement.  So I didn't do it.  The case is in excellent condition with just a couple small areas where the plating is worn.  The case measures 27mm across not including the crown.  It is 29mm in length, not including the lugs.

Bezel:  NA

Case Back:   The case back is gold plated or gold filled and it's in excellent condition.

Crystal:   The plastic crystal is in mint condition with no scratches.

Dial:  Very good condition.  Just a couple places where there is light discoloration.  They are under the sub-second hand.

Hands:   Excellent condition.

Crown/pushers:   Good condition.  The crown shows some wear.

Bracelet/Strap:   This has an aftermarket leather strap that's in almost new condition.  I've worn this watch just a couple times to some dressy events.  It's looks awesome and works great for those occasions.

Box and Papers:  Not included.

Overall Impression and other information:  This is a beautiful vintage Elgin with the almost square case.  It's in incredible condition for it's age.  You can tell that it was well loved and well taken care of.  I bought it about 6 months ago from a guy who said he had recently had it serviced.  The way the watch is put together requires the crown to be removed to expose the movement and inside of the case.  I didn't do that since it's running perfectly and is in such nice shape.  I can if it's of dire importance but I would rather not.  If you are looking for a nice vintage dress watch I don't think you can go wrong with this one.  It's absolutely beautiful and I think you will love it.
