1950’s Elgin with Swiss 643 17 Jewel Automatic Movement

I had to keep this one, simply because of the sunburst dial. ┬áThe pictures don’t do it justice, as it is very clean and has no patina. The case is so-so, but the dial….

Anyway, cleaned up the case, relumed the hands and hour markers, and now I’m waiting on a new crystal. Found an ad from 1956, showing this to be the Lakeshore.
