Elgin Shockmaster Case 6807
This is a 1950’s Elgin Shockmaster. It has a 1ok gold case and the Swiss made 643, 17 jewel, automatic movement. The dial is a raised sunray pattern. Original, I think it was white and the gold trim on the raised lines must have looked really sharp. The dial now has a solid patina, but otherwise is in very good shape.
The case itself is in decent shape, with a hint of brassing. It measures 29mm. For the time being, I put it on a period JB Champion bracelet. Just found an ad identifying it as the Capetown, 1956.
