    Something From The Archive

    In 1927 Elgin ran a series of ads suggesting that it was time to upgrade old watches using the tag line, "A watch may never lose a second yet be many years slow." Each of the ads placed older watches in a different, old fashioned context and suggests that the owner will be judged negatively for carrying an out of date model. This version uses the song "After the Ball," which was the most popular song of 1892.
