Lord Elgin Thin Thin Case 2440

This Lord Elgin uses a one piece case, number 2440.  It is 10K gold filled.  Definitely a different style case than I am used to seeing in the 760 line.

The case is in really nice, with just a few pin pricks of brassing on the lugs.  The dial is made up of concentric lines.

The dial, while not perfect, is more than passable. Something to note here, Elgin went outside of their comfort zone and used different style hands, including second hand that some might consider “backwards.”

I ended up re-luming the hands and dial.  I’m just waiting on a new crystal and leather band.
