Uncommon Elgin “DeLuxe Model 5508” men’s Streamline Moderne design wristwatch in 10K rose gold fill, circa 1941.

The “DeLuxe Model 5508” was priced at $42.50 in 1941 and is somewhat uncommon. This example is in excellent condition with just a very small amount of brassing to the highpoints, and a tiny nick near the bottom right lug. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with a touch of wear underneath the lugs. The case measures 35mm long and 22mm wide. Original two-tone rose finish dial is excellent. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Elgin grade 537 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.

Price $185. SOLD
