My dad said this watch was on his folks mantle in a glass case, as he grew up.
But he's an old Chicagoland Dutchman, and in the '70s, maybe this deserved to be in a glass case.
Old Elgin? South Bend? Has anyone have any idea? He gave it to me - "you'd appreciate it the most".
A gift like this means more to me than my wife's gift of an Explorer II. Very heartfelt gift, and I am just trying to find out as much as I can before I pop the caseback off.
