Very scarce Elgin “Touchdown 982” men’s Streamline Moderne design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill, circa 1931.
The “Touchdown 982” was priced at $32.50 in 1931 and is quite scarce, this is only the second example I have ever offered. It has a large case with a smooth, angled bezel. This example is in crisp, near mint condition with only a few very tiny specks of brassing to the bezel corners. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with one tiny ding. The case measures 37mm long and 25mm wide. Refinished dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 7-jewel Elgin grade 488 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
