Lord Elgin Futura - sold
Lord Elgin 5846
Excellent to near mint all yellow gold filled case measures 40mm long lug lug by 30mm wide. Excellent original dial with "mystery" hour hand. Original crown, probably a replacement crystal. 23 jewel Caliber 730 movement sets and winds perfectly, keeps time to within 2 min/day but not known when last serviced. Used but serviceable 17mm band. This is one of the nicest Futura models I've offered for sale in a long time. I struggled to part with this one, but you can't keep 'em all. It's one of the dangers of being a dealer AND a collector! All gold filled is intact on this, and the edges are nice and sharp. Elgin made four or five different models of the Futura in the late 1950s. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer specimen of this particular model.
