    37 size Waltham and Elgin

    Last week at fleamarket and auction bought Elgin 7j 1922 car clock and Waltham 15j Premier 1939 traveller for $20. and $90. Millions of various clock and other models of these made for more than 40 years. Even so called chronometers; gymbal mounted. Is this 1939 a top grade for then? Could anyone show others here?

    I think the OP Waltham was made as a bedside/travel clock.
    Car Models usually have the longer crown too.

    Just my feeling
