1942 Elgin De Luxe 5512

Truly excited by the Elgin De Luxe.  With a new high profile glass crystal from Kurt (veritas123@embarqmail.com), this 1942 Elgin sprang to life.

The 10k gold filled case polished up to a bright luster.  The dial is nearly flawless.  If it is a redial, it is a really good one.  The band, while not show on the 5512, is seen attached to the watch next to it in the Elgin ’42 catalogue.  At the very least it is correct to the period, if not offered originally to the watch.

The 17 jewel, 558 powers the watch and dates to 42/43.
