    Two new acquisitions

    Both ticking away strongly.. The Elgin needs a decent strap, fancy a black snake skin..

    The Elgin with the curved case, is that what they call drivers watch? I recently have learned here in the forum that you can wear such a watch on the side of the wrist, so you do not have to take your hands of the steering wheel to check the time.

    A typical example of a driver's watch is this Hamilton. the lugs allowed such positioning of the watch:



    As for the Elgin, I' d say it's just an ordinary gents watch of the time. Curved watches were very fashionable back then :)

    This style of case is generally called Curvex (a Gruen case style) or simply curved.
