    First Incoming of The Week

    1950's Lord Elgin 30 Jewel

    10KT Gold Filled, domed crystal, 36mm long and 29mm in diameter. Crystal will need to be replaced, and of course a service will be needed. I will be interested to see the movement once I get the watch; I am going to assume for now it's an Elgin 760

    Heh. I was watching that one as well - decided not to bid as I have spent enough lately.

    Hopefully will be the 760 we both expect. In which case congrats on a chronometer quality movement.

    Did you happen to bid on it? I saw it earlier today and decided to bid on it. Thanks

    No I didn't bid. I was going to bid on the assumption it was a 760, but I have been getting a bit of pressure to cut back on the spending of late

    Yours looks to be in good shape. My incoming is a little rough all around.

    My philosophy is to keep the SO and myself from looking at the bank accounts. So far it's working pretty well.

    Nice one! The crystal looks like it might respond to some judicious polishing. But NEW is better.
    I did learn recently a new crystal allows you to see every imperfection on the dial 10 times more clearly!

    Yes a new crystal does allow that. :) It's one of the downsides. Hopefully the dial is in better condition than the crystal.
