    Bought a Watchband and got an Elgin

    I bought this Elgin because it had the correct J.B. Champion bracelet for my Hamilton Super Compressor. Band is dated 9/70, so it's the right time frame.
    Probably paid too much for the Elgin, but the Champion was a nice bonus. I had to modify the end links (1mm too wide)
    and the clasp it came with was not branded, so the Hamilton clasp came from my stash.
    But I'm kinda diggin' the Elgin anyway. It's quite the runner, and for it's time period, a rather large 42mm across.
    It needs a crystal; the original? has got a gold tension ring and it's cracked anyway. Some seller pics and some of what
    I ended up with...

    Both are quite nice.At first I thought you had been given the City of ELGIN Illinois. The state is in quite desperate financial straits you know. I'm glad it's just a watch. ELGIN would be quite a financial burden for you.-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elgin,_Illinois
