    A little birdy told me - Trench Watches of the Great War - Elgin

    All
    Stan (Literustyfan) book 'Elgin Trench Watches of the Great War', new book has just been released.

    Four years of hard work, and we can enjoy the first knowledgeable information on Elgin from 1913 to 1920 (circa, I do not have a copy yet!)

    I surely can confirm that Stan has put in enormous research, finding some unbelievable information and facts!

    Please take a look, and I strongly suggest anyone interested in WWI so called 'Trench Watches' should have this book. Its not just about Elgin, but a great part of the history of the USA wristwatch.
    And all novices here interested in 'Trench Watches' should purchase a copy!

    Take a look here:

    I personally applaud Stan and bow his achievement.

    Great Job Literustyfan

    Sincerely
    Adam

    Thank you very much for the book introduction Adam ! ! !

    That was very kind!

    Adam is correct, it's not just about Elgin, there are many crossover answers to questions about other American brands from the WWI era like Illinois, Hampden, Waltham and much more.

    Many American Trench Watches used the same exact cases from manufacturers like Illinois, Fahys, Philadelphia, Star and Wadsworth.

    It's definitely worth a read!

    Well fact is, I have written two books. Yes I have many chapters already written down. Is that a book? Sadly no.
    Because I have no idea how to refine it and get it published.

    Having knowledge is great, imparting it is beautiful, and much harder
