Scarce Lord Elgin “Henslee” men’s Retro Modern design wristwatch in solid 14K yellow gold, circa 1950.
The "Henslee" has a simple round case with large lugs and was priced at $130.00 in 1950. When first introduced in the 1940s, it was simply known as the "Model 4902." It is quite scarce with a black finish dial. This example is in crisp, excellent condition showing only very light wear. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with a few faint dings. The case measures 36mm long and 29mm wide. Original black finish dial is superb, has solid 18K gold applied markers. Has new acrylic crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 21-jewel Elgin grade 556 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
