Scarce Lord Elgin “Chairman” men’s Retro Modern design wristwatch in solid 14K white gold, circa 1950.
The “Chairman” is an uncommon watch in yellow and quite scarce in white. It has a large, heavy gold case and accordingly was priced at the top of Elgin’s line $200.00 in 1950. It is in excellent condition showing only light wear. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. Case measures 36mm long and 23mm wide. Refinished dial is superb, has solid gold applied markers. Correct glass crystal with facet to match faceted bezel is excellent. The watch is powered by its correct 21-jewel Elgin grade 626 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
