    Latest buy, Elgin de Luxe

    Here is my latest aquisition an Elgin de Luxe.
    The dial shows some wear, but in spite of that, I'm happy with it. The movement has been cleaned and oiled by myself, runs strong and smoothly. The watch keeps very accurate time without special regulation.
    I've attached some photo of disassembled movement too.

    A great result.

    There is nothing quite like wearing a watch you have been so intimately involved with.

    I especially like the fancy bow. Overall, it looks very nice.
    Best of all, there's no guessing its age.
    Nice work!

    :)
    Elginwatches.org dates the movement to 1942, what is close the same what we can read on the back of the case.
