Elgin cushion 14kt gold filled case

Elgin 5824


Price reduced to $100; was originally $150.. At first glance, I thought this was an Illinois watch because of its close resemblance to the the "Major." However, it's an Elgin in a quality case (all 14kt gold filled) and with a movement with full 17 jeweling. Case is 37mm high lug to lug, by 30mm wide not including crown. Case is excellent for the most part, with the exception of a little brassing at the upper right corner of the bezel. Dial is original and in good condition with some darkening as to be expected from from an 80-year-old-plus watch. Crown and plastic crystal are both replacements. 17 jewel movement sets and winds perfectly, keeps time to within 2 min/day but not known when last serviced. Comes with a new 16mm black leather band.
