Very scarce Elgin “Touchdown 220” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill, circa 1931.
The “Touchdown 220” shares the same case with the "Mermaid" model, but with a different bezel. It is a scarce model, and was priced at $35.00 in 1931. This example is in excellent condition with only a tiny speck of brassing in each bezel corner. Original black bezel inlay is superb and complete. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. Case measures 33mm long and 25mm wide. Original dial is very good, with some patina. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 7-jewel Elgin grade 447 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
