    Lord Elgin ID

    Fairly interesting and attractive Thift pickup. Font looks ok. I can't imagine a redial. The 680 movement puts it at early 1950's. I even suspect original Champion band. Does anyone know if Elgins of this era have names? It resembles a Gulfport but it is not a Gulfport. Unfortunately I think the balance is shot. Hopefully I can find a replacement part or movement

    Ashley. Introduced around 1951 or so.



    Christmas ad, 1952



    DEFINITELY not a Gulfport. The Gulfport is a significantly larger watch, also not a Lord Elgin, but rather an Elgin 19. Looks like this in the flesh...

    Thank you Gene. I can also now see what the original strap was! BTW Is that Elforado the same as the Black Knight? Sure looks similar.

    Yep, the El Dorado is the same case, 4814. Same dial, too, but in yellow instead of black.
