Very scarce Elgin “Model 210” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K white gold with black and white enamel, and enamel buckle, circa 1929.
One of the scarcest and most desirable Elgin designs from the 1920s, the “Model 210” has a solid 14K white gold hinged case inlaid with black and white enamel geometric designs, made by the obscure Strauss & Neugass case company. It was priced to consumers at $65.00 in 1929. This example is in crisp, excellent condition showing almost no wear. The black and white enamel is excellent and complete, with only a few tiny flakes. Hinged caseback is excellent and unengraved, with a small ding. The case measures 35mm long and 24mm wide. Refinished dial is superb, with stylized Egyptian numerals. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Elgin grade 444 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong. Has white gold filled buckle with enameled designs.
