    Elgin Deluxe w/ original box estate sale find

    Hey gang, picked this up today at an estate sale. The vendor said it is 10K gold filled (I forgot my eye loop so need to verify).

    The strap is unusual and makes me wonder if it's original or aftermarket. What do you think?

    I am also trying to figure out how it was presented in the box. I might need to thread the strap through the slit in the felt.

    I'm guessing it's circa 1950. Will try to get a movement pic.

    Strap doesn't look original to the watch to me. It probably came on a leather strap which would be correct for the box.

    Nice grab!!!!
